Trout fishing in Kansas? Yes, in The Winter

KSAL StaffJanuary 12, 2015

Think of trout fishing and you aren’t likely to consider Kansas as a destination.

But the state offers trout fishing during the winter at several of its waterways. From Nov. 1 through April 15, the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism stocks rainbow trout, which are cold-water fish that can’t survive the state’s summers.

Jeff Koch, a fisheries biologist with the wildlife agency, says the trout program is one of the most popular the department offers.

The Hutchinson News reports the Dillon Nature Center is a hot spot for trout anglers near Hutchinson. Other stocking areas include the Webster Stilling Basin, the Cedar Bluff Stilling Basin, Lakewood Lake in Salina, Scott State Fishing Lake, Pratt Centennial Pond and Sedgwick County’s Vic’s Lake.
