ANNOUCEMENTS: 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 this takes time and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
