    Default 2018 Fall Test Netting In The Books......FINALLY!!

    I started my fall test netting on September 26 this year and just finished up on November 20. This was the longest fall sampling season I've had! Normally finish up the first week of November. Ended up sampling 2 Federal reservoirs, 3 SFLs, and 3 Community Lakes totaling 16,554 acres of water.

    Saw water temperatures in the reservoirs drop from 53F to 40F in a matter of days. El Dorado went from roughly 4.5 feet low to 5 feet high and back to normal while Marion Reservoir stayed 1.5 feet low. Been a strange, wacky fall to say the least!

    Will be storing equipment, entering data, writing reports, preparing fish stocking requests, examining fish harvest regs, compiling the Fishing Forecast, and gearing up for winter fish habitat projects over the next several weeks. Kansas fish bios will be keeping plenty busy over the cold winter months and at least one of us will be hoping Spring 2019 gets here quickly!

    Redge,

    It wouldn't surprise me a bit that some of the ODWC fish guys already read the Oklahoma CDC page. Ya' might try putting a post out and see if there are any takers. Calling a local ODWC office would be another idea. Fisheries field staff are usually quite busy and I'm lucky that the Kansas guys put up with my slow responses!

    Hope it works out for you guys!

    Craig
