First camping trip of 2015 – Milford Lake Kansas

A couple of weekends ago I finally got around to taking the first camping trip of the year. The weather this spring has not co-operated with my scheduled days off. It seems as every time I have a weekend off it has been dumping rain with 40 mph winds or the temps were dropping into…

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…

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…

Lunch Break Fishing 8-1

Today I spent my lunch break fishing at the outlet of Milford Reservior. It was sunny and hot so I got to give my new Buff a try. It kept me cool and saved my neck from the hot sun. The fish didn’t want to eat but I did find a softshell turtle. I’m going…

Rewarding fishing.

After yesterday’s disappointment fishing for carp, I figured I had better use my lunch break today to see if the bass were biting at Milford reservoir. It’s probably the last good fishing day of the week. Yes that is snow in the forecast later this week. Crazy! Anyways, I lined up my 8wt fly rod…

Schooled by Carp

With today’s warm weather I decided to spend my lunch break fishing. I figured with the rain we have been getting that Milford Reservior outlet would have some water flow but still be clear enough to sight fish for carp. The weather is almost perfect, just over 80 degrees and a slight breeze. It made…

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 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…
