Bob's Best Bets
May 2 ,2014 After a spring that has changed from warm to cold almost daily and weekly, the weather may stabilize. Crappies at many lakes will be moving to the spawning areas with the warmer weather. Walleyes and Saugeyes will be on the flats with water temperatures moving into the 60's. White Bass will be migrating up the rivers where there is sufficient flows. Dams will be the place where the Whites spawn in those lakes where the rivers are not flowing to attract the Whites.
Farm Pond Largemouths also should be on the spawning beds in May.
Kansas legislature winding up this years session and hopefully sportsmen will not have to live with some of the idiotic legislation proposed this year.
At this time, the "Prarie Chicken" bill has been watered down but anti conservation Senators like Larry Powell and Tom Arpke still trying to keep the anti Federal government segments in the bill. The "antlers" bill allowing landowners the rights to wildlife killed on their land may also be defeated.
KDWPT commissioners made changes to the 2014 Deer season in response to declining Deer numbers in parts of Kansas. Dry conditions of the past two years have hurt the Deer populations in several areas.
Army Corps of Engineers has been talking about getting out of the park management business at reservoirs. Some discussions with Kansas Dept. of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism have taken place recently. The recent federal government shut down at local reservoirs is a good reason to pursue this idea for KDWPT.
