Anyone have any info on Wolf Creek? I know it can only be fished on fairly calm days, but was wondering how the catching was going?
I plan on fishing it once I get moved back up there.
Heard there was an algae issue in some of the lakes. Curious if the significance is as bad as I've heard or if it's just talk.
Thanks for any info.

Enjoying retirement in the great Pacific Northwest.  I've turned into a fair weather angler.  Why do it today when I can do it tomorrow?

Hi Russ.
First, Thanks for your service to this great country.
I'm originally from around the Wichita area and still visit family in the area often.
Wolf Creek would be a long drive for you from Concordia.  You'll have several other good body's of water closer to you.  That being said Wolf Creek is a good fisheries.
There are a couple members from Kansas on here.  Maybe they'll chime in here and give you more detailed info.

heck of a drive... think it's 'about on the way' to look at Waubonsie... give it a good look ... great little flint hills lake...  just a PITA to get on... they are way militant about zebra mussels... so do a little research...

community lake... requires a special permit.  Some really nice LMB and SMB to be had there.

I think it's worth it.

also, Council Grove city lake... and some nice bass have come out of the northern reaches of CG reservoir... but you may have to really work for them.

Just about as close to Wilson from Concordia....?  then there's Milford for SMB and hybrids...

some solid opportunities there...

Yes, some good fishing in the area.  I've fished most of the lakes you mentioned at one time or another.
I plan on going back this spring or summer for a week or so.   I'll be staying at my brothers in Hesston.
Maybe we can connect up.

What would you like to know about Wolf Creek?  Algae is not that big of a factor in KS, there were a few lakes that had problems, but it was only in some areas of those lakes.   Most of the better lakes seem to be unaffected.

I live in Chattanooga, TN now...  you're welcome if  you ever get out this way.
Did grow up in Moundridge...and spent some time in Manhattan...

some familiarity with some of the lakes..  but those Flint Hill gems are some great little lakes.

Just looking for general info. As for the drive, it's really not that bad, it should only be 2.5 - 3 hours. It's the warm water for winter time fishing that got my attention.  There's several pp lakes in East Texas that are great cold weather  fisheries.

Water temps during winter months?
Primary baits? Crawfish, worms, swimbaits, cranks? Tx rigs or C-rigs?
Average depth to fish? On the bank or off shore deep structure?
There isn't much activity on the Kansas board. I'm looking to change that a little.
I got my Dad hook'd on Louisiana's big fish and I know he and I will be making some trips from time to time.
