“providing public hunting & fishing!”
The Shenango Wildlife Area is situated in northeastern Ohio, in eastern Trumbull County, 22 miles north of Youngstown. It extends from Orangeville northwest along Pymatuning Creek, nearly to the Ashtabula County line. Most of the area is paralleled by State Route 7 on the west and Orangeville-Kinsman Road on the east. State Route 88 crosses the center of the area. Parking lots are situated throughout the area. The primary purpose of the wildlife area is to provide public hunting and fishing. The area is popular for hunting waterfowl, rabbit, squirrel, turkey, grouse, deer, woodcock, and pheasant. Trapping for muskrat and other furbearers is equally rewarding, and night furbearer hunting is popular. Spring is the best time to fish, with both live and artificial baits being effective. Other uses are also popular. Much of Shenango's habitat is beaver swamp, interspersed with upland fields and woodlands. Waterfowl, furbearers, and songbirds are abundant. Shenango is an excellent place to watch woodcock mating flights at dawn and dusk in the spring; hiking and canoeing are also popular at this area.
