DUE to KDHE Lagoon Inspections the Fish cleaning station is still closed.  We can no longer dump the fish bones etc. into the Lagoon.  Accumulation of the bones, skins and other parts over the years have made the lagoon inoperable. We are waiting for permission to move the station and have the bones etc. discharge out into the lake.  Unfortunately, due to the flooding of 2019 has put a hold on this project at this point.  Plans are still in the works and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
