Default Best lakes for fishing

Any insight you can give on places to fish in the state would be greatly appreciated.

There are no lakes in Kansas, only reservoirs. With that being said, I would recommend Clinton reservoir outside of Lawrence, Milford reservoir near Manhattan, John Redmond reservoir near Burlington, Wilson Reservoir near Russell, Hillsdale Reservoir north of Paola, and Perry Reservoir northeast of Topeka.

Big Hill Lake near Parsons in Southeast Kansas is a great fishing lake. Particularly Bass fishing. The Neosho River, also near Parsons, particularly near Chetopa is well known for it's Spoonbill and Catfishing.

I just don't understand the continued "lakes" reference when they certainly aren't naturally occurring. If you want real lakes you have to go much further north.

Lake Cedar Bluff used to have great fishing but the last time I went past that lake, it was super low due to farming...
Lake Wilson also has good fishing as does Webster Lake and Inman Lake.

I purposefully used the term lakes to bother you to be honest. You need to let it go. Why does it matter? I think you are the only person I have ever "met" that is so consumed with something this trivial. Sure one is man made the other is not. Guess what, they both ultimately provide a similar ecosystem.



"Lakes are large bodies of standing water, either formed naturally or man-made for amenity purposes. Water levels tend not to fluctuate to any great extent and gently shelving margins support a wide variety of flora and associated fauna. Lakes also serve an important aesthetic role and, within the context of designed parkland, landscapes are important heritage assets."



I realize there are a few differences but ultimately there are no differences that actually matter once the lake is made (By man or nature) with the exception of lake lifespan.

Clinton, Perry, Pomona, Wolf Creek, Hillsdale and Lacygne are the ones I know of, all in the northeast-ish area of the state.

Lakes and Reservoirs - Similarities, Differences and Importance
Dams can also fail on reservoirs and flood anything close to it at a much faster rate compared to a naturally occurring lake. You can find many examples that pertain to this fact. Reservoirs do indeed have a very limited lifespan before they become completely filled with sediment and become useless as a body of water. We also aren't building any new reservoirs because the monetary and environmental costs are too high and well known.

So what does the difference between a natural lake and a reservoir have to do with the OP's query about fishing?
