Rural Setting: Ideal fishing for interested fishermen is the spring walleye run on the Sandusky River in Fremont. For walleye anglers, the Sandusky River in downtown Fremont offers plenty of action. Shore anglers can access the river easily at Swartzlander Park in downtown Fremont. Shoreline anglers can also fish the bay at Pickerel Creek Wildlife Area, Willow Point Wildlife Area, and upstream the action begins earlier with Memory Marina and Riverfront Marina providing boating access to the river where these transitional fish can be found. Huge catches of Walleye are taken from the river in downtown Fremont. The best success on spring walleye usually occurs in the deep pools that line the Sandusky River between the State Street and Miles Newton Bridges in Fremont. The run usually peaks in early April, but fishing stays good throughout the month with White Bass fishing following the Walleye run through June. A variety of pan fish can be easily caught throughout the year.
Great Birding Hot Spot Area : Birding opportunities are numerous throughout this area because of the proximity of the river, bay & lake. Closeby areas include the Magee Marsh & Ottawa wildlife area, Castalia and the Resthaven area, Blue Heron Reserve, and Pickeral Creek not to mention the many ponds and tributaries on site or nearby. Eagles, Herons, Egrets and songbirds can be observed right from the cottage.
