KDWPT Covid-19 Update
All license requirements, length and creel limits, and public land regulations remain in effect.
A common question as of late is whether KDWPT is considering waiving fishing license fees. KDWPT is funded solely from the sale of licenses and permits, and that funding is crucial to keeping gates and facilities open and law enforcement in place; therefore, KDWPT is not considering waiving fees at this time.
From Secretary Brad Loveless, “During this time of unprecedented changes, there is value in those things that can stay consistent. We’re committed to keeping Kansas’ state parks, state fishing lakes and wildlife areas open so that Kansans can continue to safely enjoy the outdoors. To achieve this, we must keep game wardens, public land managers, and park staff working in the field.”
*Please maintain proper social distancing while fishing*
