Large natural concentrations of black crappie, white crappie, and bluegill with channel catfish and walleye captured on video in a Kansas reservoir.
See the video at https://youtu.be/2GMXXdcsj3g .
|Crappie||Fair||up to 12-inch||Look along breaks, points, and timbered coves. Crappie have been caught in 15 to 20 feet of water but are beginning to come shallow with the warming water temperatures.|
|Channel catfish||Fair||up to 6 lbs||Fishing livers and shad sides on windblown shallow shorelines|
|Black bass||Slow||Few recent reports|
|White bass||Fair||Look for white bass along the dam and also along shallow rocky points during warm parts of the day.|
|Wipers||Fair||up to 22-inches||Look for shallow, warm water to find the wipers. Casting jigs or bucktails on warm windy days is a good springtime wiper technique.|
|Walleye||Fair||up to 25-inch|| |
The walleye spawn is nearly over, but there are still a few stragglers, mainly males, hanging around the spawning banks. Walleye will be a little tough to find as they transition from the spawn. In a couple weeks walleye activity will again increase and fish will be able to be found on shallow flats on the north side of the lake and along the points where a jig and crawler combo is effective. Trolling is also a productive way to find active walleye.
Walleye Minimum length limit 18 inches.
|The City of Winfield requires additional permits for anglers using the lake. Stop in to the lake office before fishing at the lake.|
