Buttonwood/Betty C. Black Recreation Area Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This is the park district’s only camping area. It’s primitive for sure, but that doesn’t keep it from being a favorite of anglers. Its location on the Maumee River makes it a premier spot for those looking to take advantage of the spring walleye migration. This is a pretty good time to look for Maumee River walleyes, too. According to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, the walleye fishery is in excellent shape, thanks to strong year classes of young fish hatched in 2003, 2007, and 2008. Male walleyes in the 21-inch range and females in the mid- 20-inch class should predominate, with smaller fish and some as large as 28 inches mixed in. The minimum size for a fish to be a legal keeper is 15 inches; creel limits vary by season, so check the regulations book that comes with your fishing license."
