Milan Wildlife Area

This 296-acre wildlife area is in Erie County. State Route 113 provides access to the area off of Lovers Lane. Parking is off of Lovers Lane, just north of the Huron River bridge.

Squirrel hunting is productive in the woodlots at Milan. Rabbits and woodcock are also taken. Most of the furbearers are concentrated along the Huron River and its tributaries.

Fishing starts in early spring (late March, early April) for white suckers, and large numbers are taken on worms fished on small hooks or by spearing and snagging. Smallmouth bass and rock bass fishing is best during late spring and early summer, with live minnows, spinners, and other artificial lures. A significant run of large Lake Erie smallmouth bass moves into this part of the Huron River during May. Crappies are taken on minnows and artificial lures during spring. Bullheads are taken on nightcrawlers throughout the year.
