Learn fishing prospects, crappie techniques, and best locations in southeast Kansas
PRATT — Want to know where the really big fish are? Do you have that burning question about your favorite lake or maybe a question about a fishing regulation? Attend the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks (KDWP) “Fishing Information Night” at Fort Scott Community College, 2108 South Horton, Gordon Parks Bldg., on March 10. The event runs from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Fishing guide Chatt Martin will start the program with tips and techniques for catching crappie. Local KDWP Fisheries biologists Don George (LaCygne Reservoir, Bourbon State Fishing Lake, Elm Creek Lake, Fort Scott Lake); Rob Friggeri (Bone Creek Reservoir, Crawford and Neosho state fishing lakes, and all Mined Land Wildlife Area lakes); and Sean Lynott (Big Hill Reservoir, Wilson State Fishing Lake, and the Neosho River paddlefish snagging area at Chetopa) will then give overviews of area fisheries and best bets for spring and summer angling.

Presentations will be short, leaving plenty of time for the public to spend with individual biologists for informal question and answer sessions. The event is free. For more information please contact the Wichita Regional Office at 316-683-8069.
