The fish are really turned on at Skiatook. Shorter days and cooler water temperatures have triggered a feeding frenzy at Skiatook. The fish are trying their best to put on body fat to make it through ... [more]

The 3,400 acres of Kanopolis Lake provide anglers with a wide variety of fishing opportunities. The most sought after species include saugeye, white bass and channel catfish. Walleye, crappie, and wipers, a white bass/striped bass hybrid, are also caught. White bass may be taken soon after the ice melts in the shallows near Bluff Creek. When river conditions allow, the white bass fishing during their March-April up-river spawn can be fantastic. The best saugeye fishing occurs during their spawning period in late March/early April along the face of the dam or other rocky points. Saugeye may also be taken in the flats from Bluff Creek to Yankee Run Point as the water warms in late April and May. Most channel cats are caught during summer nights at the upper end of the lake. Fishing just after the spring ice melt or using setlines throughout the lake are also popular techniques which can produce good results. For the hardy angler, good ice fishing for crappie and white bass can also be found when conditions allow. [Kanopolis Lake. www.nwk.usace.army.mil, 02/05/2008]

Kanopolis Lake Solar and Lunar Conditions
Current Lunar Fishing Tip:
New Moon fishing can be at its best. The gravitational pull on the earth is at its peak when the moon and sun are rising and setting at the same time of day. This combination can generate extraordinary fishing opportunities especially if combined with perfect weather variances. The new moon may have the fish extremely aggressive and actively hunting for food. Try fishing a little faster today and with several different baits and techniques. When fish are more aggressive, its always fun to fish a little more aggressive. Watch the peak fishing times and make sure you are on the water during that part of the day to take full advantage of today?s solar/lunar peaks. Have a great day!
