Free frog gigging workshop June 16


AKRON, Ohio — The Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) Division of Wildlife will hold a free workshop on the basics of frog gigging June 16.

Topics covered will include equipment, techniques, regulations, and a cleaning demonstration.


At dusk, groups will enter the wetlands on the public wildlife area with ODNR Division of Wildlife staff to pursue frogs.

Participants should wear old clothes and shoes, and bring waders, hips boots, or a canoe or kayak to better access frogs in the wetlands.

The workshop begins at 7 p.m., at the Killbuck Marsh Wildlife Area, 1691 Centerville Road, Shreve. Plan to stay well after dark to participate in the field portion of the workshop.


Anyone 16 years of age or older is required to have a valid fishing license to participate. Pre-registration is required by June 14; space is limited.
