Atlas includes maps of all public-access fishing areas
PRATT -- Anglers looking forward to warmer weather will find welcome news in the 2008 Kansas Fishing Atlas, available for viewing and download from the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks' (KDWP) website, www.kdwp.state.ks.us. Printed copies will be available in early March from most KDWP offices and license vendors or emailing teris@wp.state.ks.us.

The maps in this atlas pinpoint a variety of public fishing areas, including Fishing Impoundment and Stream Habitats (F.I.S.H.) waters. F.I.S.H. waters are privately-owned ponds or streams KDWP has leased and opened to public fishing. F.I.S.H. sites are numbered in red on each map. Each map also shows all federal reservoirs, state fishing lakes, river access, and community lakes. To find fishing areas, consult the map legend, then locate corresponding color codes on the county maps. With this atlas, anglers can locate just about any type of fishing desired.

The 2008 Kansas Fishing Atlas is an invaluable tool for Kansas anglers.
