Kansas Fishing Atlas

posted in: freshwater fishing | 0

The Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism (KDWPT) has released its 2013 Kansas Fishing Atlas. The atlas features a wide range of information, including more than 60 pages of detailed maps.

In addition to maps of public waters, anglers can also find maps of Fishing Impoundment and Stream Habitats (F.I.S.H.) waters, Community Fisheries Assistance Program (CFAP) leased properties, and lakes deemed as Family Friendly Facilities (FFF).

F.I.S.H. sites are privately-owned ponds or streams the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism (KDWPT) has leased and opened to public fishing. These sites are numbered in red on each map.

CFAP leases fishing rights for lakes operated by communities to ensure no additional fees are charged for anglers. More than 200 community lakes, covering nearly 13,000 acres, are enrolled in CFAP for 2013.

FFF lakes are alcohol-free fishing spots with flush toilets, regular security patrols, security lighting and easy accessibility, making them perfect for family fishing outings. FFF lakes are indicated on the list of CFAP-enrolled properties found at the front of the fishing atlas.

Anglers can obtain the 2013 Kansas Fishing Atlas from most KDWPT offices and license vendors, as well as online at www.ksoutdoors.com
