Atlas includes county-by-county maps of all public-access fishing areas

Anglers looking forward to warmer weather will find welcome news in the 2007 Kansas Fishing Atlas, available online, as well as in printed form. Printed copies are available from most KDWP offices and license vendors or may be sent upon request by emailing teris@wp.state.ks.us.

Maps in the atlas pinpoint a variety of public fishing areas, including Fishing Impoundment and Stream Habitats (F.I.S.H.) waters -- privately-owned ponds or streams KDWP has leased and opened to public fishing. Each map also shows all federal reservoirs, state fishing lakes, river access, and community lakes. To find fishing areas, consult the map legend, then locate corresponding color codes on the county maps. With this atlas, anglers can locate just about any type of fishing desired.

All county maps are included in this atlas, but not all counties have public fishing opportunities. Combined with the 2007 Kansas Fishing Forecast, also available at the above locations, the 2007 Kansas Fishing Atlas is an invaluable tool for Kansas anglers.
