Keith Sebelius Reservoir Fishing Report -
Species Rating Size Baits, Method, and Location
Crappie Fair 7 to 16 inches Crappies are concentrating around deeper brush, the artificial brush piles under private boat slips, and the fish attractor structures close to the public fishing dock near the mouth of Leota Cove.  Just a few reports received, but the anglers able to access these locations have been successful using jigs, small slab spoons, and minnows. Would also try fishing in the coves. 
Saugeye/Walleye Fair 13 to 27 inches Did have reports of fish being caught along the Dam and point on the east side of Leota Cove, up by the Marsh Dike and point south of the swim beach using jigs, or jigs tipped with live baits.  An 18" minimum length limit is in effect.
Wiper Good 10 to 28 inches Did have reports of fish being caught around Monkey Island and the RR bridge abutments on the south side using jigs and crank baits.  Five (5) fish daily creel limit.
Catfish Fair 10 to 30 inches Did have reports of fish being caught up to the west end using shad and stink bait on the bottom. Would also try using setlines using live bait.
Largemouth/Spotted Bass Fair 10 to 20 inches Did have reports of fish being caught up in the coves and along the Dam using crankbait's and plastic imitations.
