June 25, 2001 - Wilson -The fishing at Wilson for the last ten days has been disappointing at best. With the lake levels rising the fish slowly shut down, once they started to release water it did improve for awhile and then went to slow as soon as the mud line was pulled to the main lake. The gates were slowed to 400 CFS this morning and the lake is near conservation level again. I just came back from fishing below the dam and caught 8 stripers up to 6 lbs, fishing minnows in the fast water. There were allot of stripers released so nows a good time to catch a few below the dam. Fishing conditions should improve rapidly now if the wind would slow to below 20 mph. Good Luck.

16 and 17. Each day we caught about 40 large mouth bass, most
of these were around 14 to 15 inchs. Also caught channel cats

several bass that weighted over 4 pounds. Enclosed is a photo

June 14 fished again this evening and caught 7 stripers up to 9 lbs. Fishing the Lucas park area with live shad in 44 feet of water. I saw my first school on stripers on top today they were small fish maybe 3 lbs. but at least maybe this is the beginning of the surfacing action. With the rains lately the lake level is up but is being lowered, water temp. is 71 degrees. Good Luck. Jack Hoskinson Madd Jack Striper Guide

June 13, 2001 - Sedgwick County Park - Black bass are 0.5-2.0, rains bringing bass into shallow. Fishing near docks is best in clear/stained water.

June 10, 2001 - General - The best things to catch bass and other fish are worms and jigs. Use worms with bobbers.
June 9, 2001 - Wilson - The walleye are still biting at Wilson. Went yesterday and after a day of poor results decided to go back in the evening to a spot that we had fished most of the day and only had 3 keepers to show for our trouble. The evening was a different story. We ended the day with 14 keepers between the three of us. The largest was 4lbs. Vance Stirn, Tescott
June 9, 2001 - Wilson - Fished
Wilson hard today only to end up with 5 stripers up to 12 lbs.
missed at least 10 more but still had a good time! With the water
levels on the rise it has certainly changed the fishing but it
should improve soon. We were fishing the lucas park area with
live shad at about 38 feet. Good Luck!
June 8, 2001 - Cedar Bluff - On
June 6 and June 7 my wife and I caught a really nice mess of
black crappie on Cedar bluff. We were fishing the tree lines
in about 10 to 14 foot of water. Most of the fish were in the
10 to 12 inch range. We caught several nice whites and a few
sub legal Walleye while crappie fishing. Also managed to catch
a few suspended blacks in the same locations; two of which were
of legal size. Cabin cove, cove 4, and Boy Scout cove were the
June 4, 2001 - Kanopolis - Went out this weekend the wypers are going crazy!!Fish any point on Venango area but hold on to your poles cause it don't take long.That is if you can keep the inconsiderate BOAT FISHERMAN from anchoring right where your catching them. Good Luck, Richard Frisbie
June 3, 2001 - Wilson - June 2 the fishing was great catching Eleven stripers up to 11 lbs and we had two BIG FISH on and lost them both. Fishing the Lucas area with live shad in 44 feet of water. June 3 with an incoming cool front and high winds the fish shut down and we only ended up with 2 stripers up to 5 lbs. That's the Kansas weather for you. Good Luck!

June 1, 2001 - Big Blue River - May 26-28 Big Blue River, Set out 8 bankpoles all baited with live perch, caught 10 flathead, biggest was 30 lbs.
May 31, 2001 - Wilson - May 31 fished 8 hrs today only to catch 7 stripers up to 6 lbs. and caught 4 of those in 15 minutes fishing a 36 foot hump in the dam area. The prevailing northerly winds seems to have taken it's toll on the fishing. June 1 fished the dam and lucas area and caught 7 stripers up to 13 lbs. and several nice catfish. The stripers were still not on the feed but we did manage to get a hook in a few. Good Luck Jack Hoskinson Madd Jack Striper Guide
May 30, 2001 - Cheney - Wichita and M&M points are great for wading in the mornings and evenings for walleyes. Use Rattle Traps, or shallow diving cranks! It can definately pay off! Any point area on the East side of the lake will usually produce nice walleyes and white bass using this technique. GOOD LUCK! MIKE
May 27, 2001 - Wilson -Fished wilson friday evening and the stripers were hitting a little funny. We caught only 5 up to 6 lbs. in the Lucas park area on shad. Saturday morning they were still hitting funny but we ended up with 7 stripers up to 10 lbs. The last few days on northerly winds have slowed the fishing down a little but I am still getting reports of lots of nice walleye being caught. Most are drifting jig and worm combos but most of the larger walleye are being caught on leeches or minnows. Good Luck Jack Hoskinson. Jack Hoskinson Madd Jack Striper Guide

May 23, 2001 - Cheney - Are there any suggestions on where those of us who bank fish or wade on the dam can get into the Walleye. I was out 2 weeks ago and we got into about a half dozen of 16"-22"er's. But this last weekend we just couldn't get into them. Sincerely, Soon to be Boat Owner Chris
If you have any suggestions, email them to us at the Kansas Angler Online and we will forward to Chris.
May 23, 2001 - Osage State Lake - Hi, Hope everyone is having a good time fishing. Went to Osage 5/21 & 5/22. Catfish @ Osage are biting on liver & shad sides better than anything, getting them hooked is another story, they seem to be very smart catfish! Last night I caught 2 13 & 14 inch bass on worms ( on the bottom!). I also caught a turtle approx a foot in diameter who planted himself on the rocks and looked at me for a minute (while I was trying to remember where my scissors were to cut my line), he took care of it for me and bit my hook in half. My son went bananas & warned me he would not eat turtle soup. (But he will eat crawdads, Go figure!?) Guys fishing near me on 5/21 were catching approx 8 to 15 pound catfish on shad sides. To the guys ( Matt, Matt, Sean, & Travis) I hope you are still pulling in the big ones, and Thank you for being so nice to my son and his friend (& me). Hope to see you all down there again! Sean, Thank you for the Fish! - Rhonda
May 21, 2001 - Cheney - They (walleye) were deeper on Saturday. Three of us caught limits in 12 ft. of water on No. 7 Fire Tiger Shad Raps between Wenzel Cove and Graber Cove. Took us a while to find them, but when we did we filled up quickly.

EVELYN
May 21, 2001 - Wilson - The fishing on Wilson has been great the last week on Wilson with several stripers in the 8 to 10 pound range being caught and a 21 lber. being caught on the 20th. Most of the fish are being caught between Minooka and Lucas on live bait. Walleye fishing has also been excellent with a 9 1/2 lbers caught this week and lots of smaller fish. Right now is a great time to have a chance at a BIG striper or walleye. Good Luck. Jack Hoskinson Madd Jack Striper Guide

Good Luck. MIKE

May 17, 2001 - Cheney - My
wife and I went to Cheney Wednesday evening. The fishing was
a little tough. I don't know if it had anything to do with the
recent hot weather, moon phase, or other factors. My guess is
that the fishing pressure on the lake in the last few weeks has
had a lot to do with it. We managed to catch
May 17, 2001 - Marion County - Fished most of Sunday the 13th. The crappie have not moved up yet (darn). But the channels are still biting all over the lake.Caught 2 16" channels in the dock on liver and 2 13" wipers on liver (weird).No luck jiggin for bass or crappie. The water is looking better and better though, wish those crappie would get it in gear!
May 16, 2001 - Cheney - I've been averaging two fishing trips per week to Cheney reservoir over the past two months. Excellent walleye fishing has been experienced. On several occasions I have been very disappointed to see walleye thrown into the trash near the boat landings. This is a waste of a very valuable resource. With the amount of walleye being harvested out of Cheney this year, it will probably be another three or four years to see another bumper crop of keepers.
Please if you don't plan on consuming what you catch....please consider catching and releasing.....
May 14, 2001 - McPherson County Lake - My sister, Sandy, and her husband, Jim, and I went fishing at McPherson County Lake on May 6th, 2001. We had caught 3- 16" channels in about 3 hours and I decided to move down the bank a little and try turkey liver on a treble hook and I hooked into this 20 pound channel a short time later. This is the biggest fish I have ever caught and the biggest fish I have seen come out of this lake. See More Fish Pictures

hit the Walleye at Cheney. This time it was much better. Strong
south and westerly winds were really pushing the bait around
and enabled us to get a good drift speed going. Fishing a jig

May 7, 2001 - Cheney - My

fishing. The wind had pick up quite a bit from what it was earlier
in the day and had switched directions to the NNW. We started
fishing about 6:30
May 7, 2001 - Cheney - It
doesn't get any better than the walleye fishing at Cheney Reservoir
right now. Caught five keepers in three hours on Saturday and
two of us caught six keepers and three shorts in about three
hours Sunday afternoon. Every boat we saw was catching fish,
and there were lots of boats. Trolling Shad Raps in about six
feet of water, especially near humps of shallower water worked
for us. Drifters using jig and worm were also doing really well.
As the keepers get cropped off, it will get harder to catch what
is left, so take advantage soon.
May 6, 2001 - Marion County Lake
- Just got back from Marion, County Lake, I was there
the 4th-5th. We caught some of nearly every species living in
the lake. The highlights were a few 18"+ Channels and a
4 pound drum. The latest kdwp reports is very accurate. The cats
were particularly active.

May 6, 2001 - Wilson - Well with the wind and the weather we were back to bank fishing! May 4 we caught 5 stripers up to 6 lbs. fishing live shad on the bottom. May 5 with an approaching storm the fish were hitting good and as the wind increased to 30 plus the waves were hammering the bank, it kind of reminded me of surf fishing!

May 2, 2001 - Wilson - The wife and I fished off the bank this evening between 5:30 and 7:30 at Lucas park. We caught 6 stripers up to 6 lbs. one catfish and one undersized smallmouth, fishing live shad right on the bottom. We missed at least 6 or 7 good runs. The winds of the last few days have made it tough to get on the fish and then to have it shift and come out of the north made it even tougher today. Jack Hoskinson Madd Jack Striper Guide
April 28, 2001 - Shawnee State Lake - (4/28) Crappie are starting to come up to the bank (far and few between). Caught a couple crappie right after sun down on minnows and caught a 5lb channel cat on chicken liver about three hours after sun down. Ryan

came mostly from about 6 feet, walleye were caught about 8 feet
down in 10 feet of water. Fish sort of shut off after about 11:00

Apr 19, 2001 - Crawford State Lake - 4/18/01 Just got in from night fishing at the lake. I used fresh cut shad to entice some channel with no luck. However the crappie action was very good from about 8:30 pm to 10:30pm. Probably caught and released around 30 crappie, all on live bait. Some times they were so hot they would hit just after my minnow hit the water. I think I will have to try more of this nighttime crappie action. Thanks, Matt.
Apr 18, 2001 - Brown Co. State Lake - April 14. Caught 15 bass up to 13 1/2 inches in shallows with mepps spinners. Good action in spots. Fishing was best in shallow water and fishing slowed in deeper water near the dam.

Apr 16, 2001 - Marion County Lake - Fished on Sunday afternoon. Took my future wife out on the windy water. Started slow. As the wind changed we started to pick up a few small bass. To get out of the wind we worked that flats with large shiners. She caught her first walleye, minutes later she had her second. I had one get off at the boat. We moved into more shallow water along a wind-blown bank and hooked 5 channel and one flathead all over 4 lbs in the next 30 minutes. Caught a few crappie here and there. She hooked a little smallmouth as we were leaving. She had quite the mixed bag. Good day on the water considering the conditions. Water is stained and pretty cold. Wind limited places to fish.

Apr 15, 2001 - Crawford State Fishing Park- Crappie are here. The bite is slow, but a limit can be reached by fishing around spawning beds. The crappie are mostly suspending in deep water outside of spawning beds and moving shallower occasionally. Live minnows works best.
Bone Creek Lake- Crappie are bitting, however slower than flarlington, again live bait works best. Blue Gill are aggressively attacking worms.
Mined Wildlife Area- have
been having good sucess with small largemouths, most are just
under or in the slot limit. Plastic worm worked very slow makes
good presentation. Average size 12 inches. Don't worry the bigger
ones will come!!
Apr 15, 2001 - Kingman State Lake -April 15th fished Kingman State Lake, no bites. Drove to Cheney. Fished east end of dam, lots of people. Very few fish were caught by anyone I could see. Water was very murky.

Tried Dip bait, NO bites. Water was high, lots of trash coming down the channel. Went to Wichita point, fished same baits, a few bites, no fish. Went to the face of the Dam, nightcrawlers yielded several small white bass, apporx 4 to 8 foot deep. Used all the worms, got tired, went home. Didn't catch a keeper fish all day. Hope you boat fishermen had better success! Take Care. MIKE

Hell creek area has gotten allot of pressure this last week from bank fisherman and boats but I haven't heard many reports of fish being caught. The bank fisherman are starting to show up in the Minooka area, the last few years there were some nice stripers caught fishing there. The main lake water temp. is 53 degree as soon as the temp climbs a couple of more degrees things should really bust loose. Jack Hoskinson Madd Jack Striper Guide

Apr 8, 2001 - Wilson - We fished Lake Wilson Apr 7 all day only to catch 3 stripers up to 4 lbs. We had one other bite that we missed. Two of these were caught in the Lucas park area and one in Hell creek balloning shad. The front that had moved thru the day before had certainly shut the fishing down. I did hear of a 16 lber caught the evening of the 6th and saw 2 stripers caught by wade fisherman in Hell creek one of the stripers I would guess at about 7 lbs.

Apr 3, 2001 - Geary County St. Lake - Fished Sunday afternoon in a terrible wind trying to catch crappie. Caught one in the first ten minutes and skunked for the next 3 hrs so we went home. Before heading for the house I talked to one other boater who had two crappie in the same amount of time.

Apr 2, 2001 - Marion Reservoir -
Went fishing on March 27 & 30 at the dam for Walleye
with no success. I fished till about 9:30pm each night and nothing.
They are there, you can hear them splashing but no bites. Friday
night, the 30th, there was about 20 people fishing and I didn't
hear of one catch. I guess I will keep on
Apr 1, 2001 - Wilson - Fished the Wilson Hell creek area friday evening and caught 7 stripers up to 5 lbs. Missed at least that many more balloning shad in this area. Saturday afternoon and evening fished the same area only to catch one small bass. We had several good runs but just couldn't put a hook in them! The Walleye fisherman are starting to show up on the dam at Wilson, I haven't heard any good reports but there were several there after dark on Friday night. Good Luck!
