FISHING ATLAS IS ANGLERS’ GUIDEBOOK

Feb. 23, 2012
Atlas including maps of all public-access fishing areas now online, in print March 1
PRATT ­­— The Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism (KDWPT) has released a tool that will help you catch more fish — and it’s free. Interested?

Check out the 2012 Kansas Fishing Atlas, now available for viewing and download from KDWPT website, ksoutdoors.com. The maps in this atlas pinpoint a variety of public fishing areas, including all federal reservoirs, state fishing lakes, river access, and community lakes. Fishing Impoundment and Stream Habitats (F.I.S.H.) waters are included, as well. F.I.S.H. waters are privately-owned ponds or streams KDWP has leased and opened to public fishing. F.I.S.H. sites are numbered in red on each map.

To find fishing areas, consult the map legend, then locate corresponding color codes on each map. With this atlas, anglers can locate just about any type of fishing desired.

To locate the 2012 Kansas Fishing Atlas, click the above link or go to the KDWPT website and click "Fishing/Where to Fish in Kansas/Fishing Atlas." Printed copies will be available March 1 at most KDWPT offices and license vendors.

Combined with KDWPT Fishing Reports and Fishing Forecast, also found on the agency’s website under “Fishing,” the 2012 Kansas Fishing Atlas is an essential component of every angler’s gear.
