Oxford Junction Wildlife Area

Fishing at Oxford Junction Wildlife Area

This public area emerged from the Wapsipinicon River floodplain because the river has a habit of leaving its banks.

561 acres; 3/4 grassland, 1/4 timber/wetlands


B Street on the SE side of Oxford Junction


There are two, three-acre ponds on the east tract that offers good fishing for those willing to explore. The ponds are very different – one is surrounded by trees with little shore fishing access, the other is surrounded by sand deposits with a fish population heavily influenced by the river and little shade. These ponds would also be a good place to take a kayak.The sea of young prairie is alive with redwing black birds, grasshoppers, goldfinches, butterflies, dragonflies and pheasants.
