Lakes in Kansas


Kansas is America's heartland--home of the prairies, land of the bison, and keeper of the myth and mystique of the Wild, Wild West. It's also a great vacation spot for lake enthusiasts who love to fish.

More than 20 major reservoirs are located within Kansas. The state also boasts 40 state-stocked fishing lakes, and there are over 100 other lakes throughout its various counties and communities. In Kansas fishers have the opportunity to angle for a wide array of species, including bass, catfish, crappie, panfish and trout. Notable fishing lakes include Milford Lake, Elk City Reservoir and Keith Sebelius Lake. Milford Lake, a.k.a. the "Fishing Capital of Kansas", is a 16,000-acre prairie lake known for its walleye and white bass. Elk City Lake, located outside the city of Independence, is renowned for its trophy-size catfish, and historic Keith Sebelius Lake teems with feisty hybrid bass known as wipers.
