Pigeon River Fish & Wildlife Area is dedicated to providing quality hunting and fishing opportunities while maintaining 11,794 acres of land, 529 acres of lakes and impoundments and 17 miles of free flowing river.
Pigeon River Fish and Wildlife Area was established in 1956 when three impoundments in the Pigeon River Valley were given to the state. These included Mongo, Nasby and Ontario reservoirs. Since then the state has acquired additional land along the river valley.
Most revenues used in land acquisition, development, operation and maintenance of Pigeon River Fish and Wildlife Area are derived from the sale of hunting, fishing and trapping licenses. Funds are also received from the federal Pittman-Robertson and Dingell-Johnson programs to aid fish and wildlife restoration. These funds are derived from taxes levied on sport hunting and fishing equipment. Indiana hunters and fishermen are proud to provide this property for the enjoyment of all people.
