Hi all, just found this site. I just moved to Lawrence for school and plan on fishing Clinton Lake a lot this year. If you ever need someone to go with let me know. Last summer I mainly fished Shawnee Mission Park Lake and the Kansas River in DeSoto. Im still trying to figure out how to catch the big ones but they keep eluding me. Maybe someday i'll catch a flathead ha.

The BOC has gatherings across the country. This is Kansas's first official gathering. Osage was the idea first but alot of people were interested so we moved to a bigger lake and a warmer date. Osage seems like it will still have a good turnout.

Jake, you moved next to a good lake if you are looking for Flatheads. This lake is full of them. My recomendation is to fish around the the mouth (give or take at 1/4 mile from the bridge) of the Wakarusa. I would fish on th north side (lake side) and on the east side of the creek channel. It is filled with standing timber so gear up and good luck. Welcome to the BOC I have not met a bad person from here yet.

Jake, welcome aboard. I live in Lawrence also. I have not fished Clinton to much either. I am kinda like you wanting to learn more about it. If you ever need someone to go with give me a holler. If nothing else I seem to be good for comic relief since I am not the most grateful person around.

Either of the two KS gatherings would be good to go to. Fine place to
network with other cat fanciers in your area. According to population
studies done for flatheads in the Kansas(or Kaw) River the area above
Bowersock Dam near Lawrence is where they found the most big and
highest numbers of them mudcats. They did electrofishing to get those
data. Shocking! Look around the site and peruse the Member Library
for ways to further stack the deck for your next run at Mr. Whiskers.
If you can put in the time, you are in the right place and with the
right folks to pull in a flattie big enuff to saddle and ride!
