I've had a Facebook page for about a year now and it has photos of: walleye egg collection, sauger collection, stocking, electrofishing and fall netting on lakes in my area. Just click on this link https://www.facebook.com/NEKansasFisheries hopefully you'll LIKE what you see!
We conducted our fall netting and the lake looks pretty good, I'll have some numbers up in a couple of weeks when we're done netting. New netting pictures are up now!
