Pickerel Creek Wildlife Area

The 3,200-acre area lies between the south shore of Sandusky Bay and U.S. Route 6 in Sandusky County.

A permit only system has been established within the area marked “Controlled Waterfowl Hunting Area.” The remainder of the area is open to waterfowl hunting at all times without an area permit.

Trapping rights to the refuge and controlled waterfowl hunting area are awarded annually through a special drawing. Public trapping along Pickerel Creek and its adjacent marshes remains open and can be very productive for muskrat, raccoon, and mink.

Sandusky Bay and Pickerel Creek offer good fishing opportunities.

An observation tower is open year-round for viewing the abundant wetland wildlife. It is located along U.S. Route 6 just east of Pickerel Creek.
