Mohican River Wildlife Area

The 474-acre Mohican River Wildlife Area, in east-central Ohio, consists of two separate units approximately 5 1/2 miles apart on the lower reaches of the Mohican River. The 121-acre upstream unit is at the village of Brinkhaven and is accessible from State Route 62. The lower unit, 353 acres in size, lies on Tiverton Township Road 368.

Habitat for deer is provided by the reverting old fields, with wild crabapple, hawthorn, and dogwood combined with second-growth hardwoods.  Oak-hickory groves on the higher slopes provide excellent squirrel hunting.  Waterfowl hunting is limited, but frequently productive during fall migration. Woodchuck hunting, although limited to the open fields, is increasing in popularity.

The deep, clear pools immediately below the whitewater riffles are excellent places to use spinners, night crawlers, and soft craws for smallmouth bass and catfish.
