Wildcat Mountain State Park

The Kickapoo River between Ontario and Gays Mills has a total of 46 fish species, including an abundance of brown trout. This stretch of river has been classified as a Class II trout stream. Trout use this section of river for food and shelter, but likely spawn in tributary streams. Billings Creek, a tributary of the Kickapoo River, has a population of brown trout.

Anglers of any age may check out basic fishing equipment free of charge at the park office. This equipment was donated by the Tackle Loaner Program. Call the park office to find out what equipment is available.
