Good to see you guys at the Topeka Boat Show, thanks for coming out!

I see a few if you have visited the new Facebook page.  I've been posting lots of photos that aren't in the fishing reports: walleye egg collection, stocking and electrofishing.  Just click on this link hopefully you'll LIKE what you see!

This is a generic report and will be updated as current information is available.  Look for updated reports starting in March.

October netting pictures are up now, still some nice largemouth in this lake! Click on NEBO above fishing report to see these fish. Click on the fish species and it will take you to the updated Fishing Forecast.
