Kanopolis Reservoir Fishing Report -
Species Rating Size Baits, Method, and Location
Channel Catfish Good 16 - 21" Good. Try worms and cut bait in coves and the upper end of the reservoir.
Crappie Fair 10 to 14 inches Fair. Try jigs on fish attractors and deeper brush. Reports of some crappie being caught along the dam in shallow water.
Walleye/Saugeye Fair 14 - 22" Fair. The bite has been slow but try jigs, swimbaits, and jerkbaits off rocky points and the dam towards dusk and at night. Shallow flats near the river channel will likely start to hold some Saugeye as the water warms.
White Bass Fair All sizes - up to 17 inches Fair. Upper end towards the river channel and rocky points - try pink or chartreuse jigs
Wiper Fair All sizes Slow. No reports for this species.
