Status Alert: Hunting in Progress until Feb. 2018

2017 Duck Blinds at Walborn Reservoir: The waterfowl blind lottery scheduled for Sept. 9, 2017 and blind reservations will not be available in 2017 due to low water levels at Walborn Reservoir. Open hunting will be permitted, but since the blinds are not currently surrounded by water, it will be strictly open hunting with no blinds provided. Waterfowl hunters wishing to hunt on the main body of the reservoir (between Price St. and Reeder Ave.) must hunt near a currently existing blind location. Hunters must sign in before launching at the check-in station located near the marina front window. This will also show what locations are currently available and prevent crowding of other hunters. Hunt locations cannot be reserved. Sign-in is strictly first come, first serve. **Hunting on Walborn Reservoir will be closed on Tuesdays and Thursdays** The boat launch located near the Eagle Observation Area off Marlboro Ave. is also closed to boats due to low water. Canoes and kayaks may access the hunting locations. Low water and mud will make launching difficult. Please call the Natural Resources Dept. at 330.933.0020 with any questions.
