  1. Arkalon is still terrible. Nothing but catfish for years! I laughed so hard when they only threw in 5 thousand fingerling bluegill on top of a large amount of catfish. The park itself is extremely nice and well kept but the ponds are terrible. No shade, only one species of fish. The water also smells nasty.

  2. Scott Lake; 5 September, Caught a nice Bass, weighing three pounds. Catfish ranging from 1 to 2 1/2 foot. Probably the best fishing I had for some time. Bass were caught bottom fishing with worms, a very shallow location, cat were caught with liver. Also caught several Bass that were under sized so released them. All on bottom rigs.

  3. Can SOMEBODY PLEASE DO SOMETHING ABOUT ARKALON before they close?!?!?!?!?! Is it really too much to ask for that you guys throw some black bass in there and some bigger bluegill along with some forage fish (LIKE THERE USED TO BE??!!!) before they close for the season? I mean really, if it's THAT big of a hassle, I will pay for a stocking from a disease free supplier/hatchery. I know of certified people in Mcpherson that could drive these things down right away if ordered! PLEASE LET ME KNOW if i can help or not!

  5. Caught lots of bass, using minnows jigging and under a bobber. One legal limit. Kept none. No crappie. Shad are still active topwater and foraging size.

  7. Hey guys whats happening at Clark SFL? Did the dam spring a leak? I have seen flowing water over there every trip this summer. Last trip of the year today and i noticed lake levels are once again dropping. Can we get an explanation please? Makes no sense to let water out of that lake after waiting 5+ years for it to fill back up again!

    1. Has anyone called Pratt on this one? I was over there today too and noticed water being let out. I agree. After waiting 5+ years for her to fill back up, there better be a good explanation here, because those land owners down stream got plenty this season!
