These 10 Amazing Spots In Kansas Are Perfect To Go Fishing
As it gets warmer, the fish start moving, breeding, and generally being so much more catch-able. If you’re like me, a perfect Kansas pastime is fishing at some of Kansas’s best lakes. Now, I’m a catfish kind of person, but these 10 spots are great for all kinds of fish.
1. Coffey County Lake
Coffey county lake is a very diverse fishing area, with smallmouth bass being the big winner here. Others you'll find include walleye, white bass, crappies, and catfish.
2. Pomona Lake
Pomona's the place to be if you're looking for crappie fishing (Ha-ha). It's also got white bass and wiper, as well as the occasional large catfish.
3. Melvern Lake
Here there's a booming population of smallmouth bass. You can also find a good number of bruiser smallies, blue catfish, crappies, and walleye.
4. Elk City Lake
If you're looking for a fight, chances are you're casting in Elk City Lake. Catfish here are heavy! This lake also produced a world record for flathead in 1998, at 123 pounds! If the waters are right, it's also a good spot to find crappies.
5. Wyandotte Lake
If you're up for braving the late winter, there's a great number of trout here to find. If not, there's also channel cats, small/largemouth bass, crappies, and walleye.
6. Milford Lake
In general, Milford is a tough spot to beat, as many fish caught here cross the 50 pound line. There are bass and crappies galore here!
7. Perry Lake
Sadly, the crappie population isn't as big here as it used to be. However, there's a good chance of you catching one in the spring, or some chunky channel catfish in the summer.
8. Clinton Lake
This lake might be known for great crappie fishing, however there's also a good chance for white bass, walleye, and catfish.
9. Wilson Lake
Wilson is probably one of the top striper and walleye spots there is here. It's also not a bad place for catfish or white bass, either.
10. Marion Lake
Personally, this is the lake where my father loves to get his catfish. They're always biting, and they taste great fried every time.
