|Species||Rating||Size||Baits, Method & Location|
|Channel Catfish||Good||Up to 2-3 lbs||Channel Catfish have been biting well on prepared baits and cut bait in the Wichita Area recently. Chisholm North, Watson, Emery Park, the KDOT lakes and the other lakes in the Wichita Metro Area are excellent for Catfish.|
|White Crappie||Good||Up to 12"||Use small jigs or a minnow and fish around brush piles close to the shoreline on warm sunny days, and out in deeper water on cold days. Crappie are best at the KDOT Lakes, Watson Park, K-96 lake and Chisholm North lake.|
|Largemouth Bass||Fair||Up to 18"||Bass fishing in Wichita can be found at any of the lakes, but the best reports come from the KDOT lakes, Emery Park, Blackbird and Sunflower Ponds and Chisholm north lake. Recent reports are mixed, with the Bass biting well on some days and poorly on other days.|
|Bluegill||Fair||Up to 1 lb||Sunfish are a great choice when other fishing gets a little slow. A simple small piece of worm fished under a bobber near the shore will yield the best catches. Bluegill are present in every lake in the area, but are especially good at Blackbird and Sunflower ponds, Chisholm North lake, and Emery Park Pond.|
|Rainbow Trout||Good||Up to 2 lbs||Rainbow trout were stocked at KDOT East Lake, Vic's lake, and Slough Creek on March 2nd, 2017. This will be the final trout stocking for the 2016/17 season.|
Channel Catfish are stocked monthly across the Wichita Metro Area from April - September.
