The Flatland Fly Fishers are hosting their annual Bluegill Fest for active members on June 25th, 2016. We are fishing a private lake located at 6711 West 53rd North, Wichita, KS. The lake is east of Ridge Road on the south side of 53rd. Look for the Flatland Fly Fishers Club Banner. The lake has plenty of blue gill and bass. Bring your kick boat, float tube, kayak, canoe or small boat with trolling motor. However, no gasoline engines are allowed on the lake. Those who do not have a floatation device can fish from the bank. Right now with all the recent rain the water is high and there are a lot of cattails around the lake. So it is going to be tougher to fish from the bank.
This lake water can be clear so come prepared to fish at multiple depths. A 3 to 5 wt rod is adequate for this lake for most of the fish you will catch. There is an opportunity to catch a nice channel, carp or bass.
The fishing will be from around 6 am till early afternoon. Lunch will be provided for by the club. You need to bring your own beverage.
The owner feels the lake is currently over populated. So you can keep some fish if you want to.
