Willow Point Wildlife Area

This 645-acre wildlife area is located in Erie and Sandusky counties, seven miles west of the city of Sandusky. The area can be reached from U.S. Route 6 by traveling north on Sandusky County Road 290 or by going west on Erie County Road 35 (Wahl Road).

The Willow Point Wildlife Area harbors a number of waterfowl species during spring and fall migrations. Waterfowl hunting can be productive in the marsh units.

Some of the best birding in Ohio is found in this region. The geographic location of Willow Point, along the southern shore of Lake Erie, accounts for high numbers of waterfowl, songbirds, shorebirds, and hawks during the spring and fall migrations.

Populations of rabbits inhabit the higher ground on the area, providing a hunting opportunity. Good numbers of muskrats, raccoon, and mink are available to trappers.

Fishing is best in Sandusky Bay, beginning with bullheads in late March and continuing throughout the year. Crappie fishing is best during April, May, and October. Channel catfish and freshwater drum are taken throughout the year, but the best fishing occurs from June through September. White bass and walleye are taken in the early spring, from late March to early May. Good winter ice fishing occurs in the area of Sandusky Bay, primarily for yellow perch and crappies.
