Come out to fish while helping the Refuge manage habitat! Snakeheads are an invasive fish that can grow up to 3 ft long and can breath out of water. We need your help getting them out of the water!

Don't know how to fish? Learn how at one of our 5 Snakehead Fishing Nights this summer. Fishing gear and bait will be provided! Events will be held at fishing areas on Dike Trail. A cooler will be available for Snakeheads caught on Snakehead Fishing Nights. No fishing license needed for Snakehead Fishing Nights. Free and kid-friendly!

Between July 1st to August 31st, compete in the Snakehead Fishing Tournament to win prizes for the longest and most Snakeheads caught on a line!

To enter the tournament:
1) Catch and identify Snakehead (must be caught on a line)
2) Measure Snakehead on rulers placed around designated fishing areas around the Refuge
3) Take a photo of Snakehead with the ruler
4) Post on FB @HeinzNWR and tag #Fishing4Habitat
5) Talk with Refuge staff about how to properly dispose of the fish
