Angling prospects, as well as aquatic nuisance species, to be discussed

Want to know where the really big fish are? Do you have that burning question about your favorite lake or a question about a fishing regulation that doesn’t make sense. If so, the place to be is the “Fishing Information Night” at Sanders Hall Auditorium, Neosho County Community College, 800 W. 14th St., Chanute, on Thursday March 6, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Local Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks fisheries biologists Sean Lynott (Big Hill Reservoir), Don George (LaCygne Reservoir), and Rob Friggeri (Bone Creek Reservoir) will present an overview of area reservoir fisheries and smaller lakes of local interest. Prospects for the upcoming paddlefish season will also be discussed.

To address questions regarding fisheries farther from home, Tom Swan, regional fisheries supervisor, and fisheries biologists Leonard Jirak and Carson Cox will also attend. The recent discovery of zebra mussels at Perry Reservoir, and aquatic nuisance species in general, will also be discussed.
