KDWP BLOG INVITES PUBLIC COMMENTS ON JUG FISHING

Currently illegal in Kansas, fishing technique allowed in three of four neighboring states
PRATT -- Should jug fishing be allowed in Kansas? That’s the latest question posted on the KDWP blog. Interested persons are invited to comment.

Kansas offers a variety of fishing techniques and opportunities, but some anglers have expressed interest in jug fishing, which employs a flotation device, or “jug,” with fishing line and hook suspended beneath it. Jug fishing is legal in many states, including neighboring Oklahoma, Colorado, and Missouri.
