    Default White Bass Run

    Hello, I am new to Kansas, I was wondering when the white bass should be running and where? I have heard Marion Reservoir is often good but was wondering other places to try and when. Any advise on them and crappie in Kansas would be great. No wanting to horn in on anyone's spots just general places and times. Also, would love to meet some KS fisherman.

    Thank You

    I have been catching quite a few in the feeder creeks in NE Kansas. My neighbor always did good this time of year on the Neosho river near Hartford.

    Off the dam or up in the river at cheney is really good for wipers and whites. Marion is really good in the same areas. Small chartrues twisters or small jigs work well.

    Never fished it but always heard about it and seen many vehicles parked there early in the year is the bridge for highway 15 that goes over the marion wildlife area just south of Durham (I believe it's the cottonwood river bridge.).

    It's the north cottonwood river. Most fish the old bridge that's tore down between the lake and Duram. It's good fishing for crappie and white bass. I catch some good wipers below the dam when they are releasing water. I use a white 3" tube and let it drift into the riffles. They usually hit it just before it goes into the riffles. If you walk over the dam I fish from the overflow east along the gravel bank and throw a small chartrues roadrunner on a 7' ultralite with 6 lbs mono. I like the stretch of mono with the bigger wipers. April and early may are the best along the dam and outlet. Let me know how you do. Tight lines and bent rods.

    Thanks guys hopefully will get out this week, did a short recon of the areas by vehicle. As a 100% disabled Vet I can go about anytime. Just have to feel good enough that day to fish.
