I have been fishing at Pott. 2 the last few days and the crappie fishing is still very slow. Not catching them on minnows yet. Try throwing different jigs. Hopefully this week will bring in some warmer water temps.

Clinton Lake is a very good crappie lake. We fished it yesterday and caught plenty of fish all sizes from the shore on a jig and bobber. We had some 15" fish, easy pickens.

Clinton and Perry have some crappie showing up on the banks this past week but it's nothing to write home about. Clinton's water has clear/not murky visability and Perry could use another 1/2 ft.- 1 ft. depth for better crappie fishing from the bank. Leavenworth has small largemouth on the west side of the lake and there wasn't really anyone there fishing at the lake. I couldn't find any crappie. Waiting for the preferred barometric pressure for the given area may be key for better fishing and chances are it's not gonna be a reading in the thirties.

Perry spillway- fishing is a lot better at 5000cfs vs 1000cfs.

Ok, i was reading on this page that meade hatchery is one of the best in the whole state, they send all kinds of species of fish all over the state. But what about their own lake??? on this hatchery they have channel catfish, hybrid sunfish, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, walleye and grass carp but they dont stock lake meade but with catfish, we will like to have some action too, im serious if someone catches a largemouth bass feels like they won the kansas lottery, for real is that bad i mean check their fishing report, i think the best i have read on it is fair, we never have good on almost anything. I think that this lake deserve it, its always people trying to fish there, and i say trying because they never catch anything or something small. I was talking to one of the guys that works there and he said they havent stock with largemouth bass there for YEARS that got me desapointed bad i mean what do we need to do in order to get some fish on this lake???? If you want us to buy it, i know there is plenty of people that will, including me. I dont think that if you stock at least one LMB per acre at least twice a year (and im not asking for big fish, even just fingerling size) this lake will be great just like it used to be many years ago, plus i dont think it whould hurt your hatchery at all, so please people from the KDWP think and talk about it i mean that will bring more money to this park wich is really pretty, all we need and ask for is just FISH. What the rest of the people think about what i just said???? and the arkalon park i just dont even want to think about it every year looks worst, looks more like drainage water well to make it easier for you the seward county landfill looks way better then arkalon park and im not making fun of it this is serious i think the KDWP needs to put more attention on lake meade and arkalon park too no just on the bigger lakes please people make comments about it so we can get a good solution for this big problems.

Milford is MUDDY, fished main lake area. When the birds got up you could see their tracks, the boats left ruts. Caught some wipers 1-8# in the Kemp Crk area, 1 19" walleye and a handful of drum. Nice day but still the weekend, c'mon Sept.

Well the COE's shut Milford off completely, there are stranded, dead or dieing fish everywhere, and I mean everywhere. All the way past HWY 77 and into town. It's gonna stink and flies and maggots everywhere. Just a little flow could've prevented this, why not open the outlet up for salvage a couple days, there needs to be an emergency decision made, while the fish are still edible. IMHO of course.

I would like to send you some pictures of litter I took this morning at Cheney State Park. I need an e-mail address rather than this form, though.

Any fish in the outlet at Milford, are they dieing off. Is it crowded?

Anonymous said...

Milford: wipers, wipers, wipers, some catfish. Wipers up to 15# on live bait after you find it. Topwater when they are up. 100+ fish in a full day. Chiropractor Monday cause my backs a wreck. Not much left for boat ramps either.

Caught a 14# flathead using a 1/2 pound female bluegill at Leavenworth Co. lake. Time was 12:20 a.m. when fish hit. I waited a few more hours afterwards with no more action.

We fished Clinton Res. today for our first time and had an excellent day. We caught our limits of nice crappie on channels with standing timber, some largemouth bass, and white bass and wipers, 1 big walleye. I'll be going back to my new in-laws plenty now. We had a great day. There were other boats out there too, but I don't know how they did.

I paid for a dozen shiners and went fishing for crappie at Wyandotte co. lake. After 3 hrs ended up with 5 or 6 smallmouth, a largemouth, lost a crappie, and landed two 3#? channel cat. Not a big deal but I spooled up with new 4# test on an ultralight reel. Talk about some work landing the bigger fish- whew. I found spots with the wind hitting the points fishing from shore. The catfish were cool to the touch while the smallmouth were warm to the touch. Bass are deeper and the cats are shallow I guess.

.... and I just about forgot. I also caught a flathead catfish. He was the best fight of the day. I used 1/8 gold leadheads and plain (non-painted) 1/16 horsehead leadheads tipped with shiners for all fish.

Strange no fishing reports during the best fishing time of the entire year??? Maybe its a secret that 99% of all fish are caught from October 15th - End of year??

Well with the new year upon us, rumblings that KDWP and our Legislators are looking at senior citizens having to buy a fishing license. Think this had come up for discussion not too far back?

Anonymous said...

Why they picking on the old guys again? If you've bought your license all your life I believe you should be entitled to a few years of freeby fishing/hunting, many of us are on fixed incomes after retirement even though it isn't much money, every break helps.

Any good bluecat action on Milford lately?

I went to Wilderness Lake this afternoon to fish, and was taken aback at what I witnessed. I do not know if the lake was frozen over for too long, and the lake was deprived of oxygen or what. What I saw and photographed was close to a hundred dead fish, some were covered in green algae, and one blue gill I thought was dead had a white fungus on it's tail and parts of it's body, when I used a stick to move a leaf to photograph it the fish tried to swim. I saw the remains of crawdads as well. There was some indication of predation as I saw a few and I stress a few of the fishes tails had been eaten. The vast majority of the fish were simply dead in various stages of decay. I intend to call KDWP in the morning and give them all the information I have. If anybody else has insight on this matter please let me know, I really want to get to the bottom of this.
