Spencer Wildlife Area

This 618-acre wildlife area is situated in northeastern Ohio in Medina County, approximately two miles east of the village of Spencer, north of State Route 162. State Route 162 and Medina County Roads 27 and 58 provide good access.

Hunting is popular in the area. Waterfowl hunting is popular. The most common species are the wood duck and Canada goose, followed by the blue-winged teal and mallard. Upland game species are well distributed throughout the wildlife area.Raccoon hunting is also productive throughout the area. Furbearers, especially muskrats, provide many hours of recreation for trappers.

The best largemouth bass fishing is in spring and early summer. Bluegills are most easily caught on the spawning beds, but they can also be found along weed beds and around submerged brush. Channel catfish are more easily caught during the summer at night by fishing live or cut bait on the bottom.

Parking lots with boat launching ramps have been provided on both sides of the lake at the ends of the access roads. Boats are restricted to electric motors only. An archery range was established in 1994, east of the lake. It consists of various known distance targets and a walk-through course of unknown distance targets.
