Spring Fishing – Milford Lake 2015

The warm spring weather has finally shown up and that mean I will be making more time to go fishing. This year fishing has been great at Milford Lake here in Kansas. I have managed to catch smallmouth, largemouth, wipers, and even a walleye while fly fishing. We have been getting rain at least a…

Kansas Trout Fishing December 2014

This past weekend I took Friday off so I would have a long weekend to do some fishing. I found out that the trout that were stocked this year have been from Colorado not Arkansas/Missouri, like we usually get. The majority of the fish seem to all be small but still fun to catch. The…

Five Days of Fishing Day 1

With Labor Day weekend right around the corner I decided to take a few extra days off and make it an extended weekend. That’s right five days off in a row. Might not be much to some of you but for me its a rare thing. Over the next five days my goal is to…

Summer Camping

This past Saturday the weather was unusually cool for this time of year, so I packed up the family and headed to the lake for some camping. We found a spot close to the water and set up camp. Shortly after setting up the tent I heard a bunch of splashing so I grabbed a…

A Great Summer Evening

Tuesday evening I took the family to do some fishing at Milford lake. With all the rain we have been getting over the past month here in Kansas the lakes have finally recovered to normal water levels. We were fishing a small cove when all the sudden a group of hybrid bass started exploding on…

Woolly Bugger Smallmouth

My lunch time outing to the Milford outlet today found a dirty river and not much fish. I did manage to hook a little smallmouth. Wish I was still fishing… oh well back to work.

Lunch Time River Fishing

Today I finally took time to run to the outlet of Milford Reservoir at lunch. Over about 20 minutes of fishing I caught a smallmouth and a largemouth. There was very little water being released so fishing was not as good as I had hoped. Maybe we will get some rain and change all of that…

Outfished

Finally I got out and did some fishing Sunday. It didn’t go as I had hoped. My wife outfished me. The family and I loaded up and headed for Kanopolis Lake Sunday morning. The temperature outside was perfect. It looked like a great day to do some fishing. When we arrived we found that the lake…

Lunch time fly fishing 9-4-12

Today I decided to spend my lunch time fishing the outlet river of Milford reservoir. With the rain we have been getting lately I knew the water would be flowing quite well. On the short drive to the spot I had in mind to fish I quickly ate my lunch and prepared myself to deal with…

Fishing new waters

Sunday morning the wife and I decided that we were going fishing. I really wanted some new scenery so I decided to go try fishing at  Pottawatomie County State fishing lake. It is supposed to be a good bass and bluegill lake. I know that going fishing on a sunny clear sky kind of day…

August Fishing and Kayaking in Kansas – Bass fishing

Last weekend my family and I went to Milford lake and visited Acorn Resorts. They have some really nice Hobie kayaks they rent. We chose to rent a tandem kayak so I could take my daughter and wife out for their first kayak ride. It didn’t take long for us to decide that we will be…

Hot Kansas Fishing

As everyone probably knows it’s been a very hot and dry summer here in Kansas, so fishing has not been a high priority for me. It had been a couple of weeks since my last trip to the lake so Tuesday after work I went home and picked up my wife and daughter and headed…
