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]

- still a little early, for the larger female walleye to feed. Any day now...
Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
This is the water temperature of choice for walleye. They are feeding well and moving in patterns that should be fairly easy to pick up and capitalize on today. Baitfish are not at the peak of activity but they will be in good supply in the deeper water. The lake is really turning on this time of year and the fish should be biting well.

Kanopolis Lake Solar and Lunar Conditions
Current Lunar Fishing Tip:
The crescent moon will have better gravitational pull than a gibbous or half moon. However the affects of the moons gravitational will be decreased since the sun and moon aren't pulling in conjunction with one another. It's time to pay close attention to the other fishing factors in the weather to make the best decision for hitting the water.
