    I am from Ellinwood but now reside in OK.
    I hear they are biting good at the diversion dam.
    I have always heard the fishing was good at the mouth of the Walnut where it goes in to the Arkansas.
    Many years ago I caught a lot of nice channels on the little Cheyenne North East of Ellinwood on shad gizzards, I would venture to say it is good right now with all the water they are letting out of the bottoms.
    Another good spot is where the Little Cheyenne and Cow Creek come together on the Barton/Rice county line.

    thanks i have heard of some good reports coming from little cheyenne but have not had time to fish there. there are alot of carp down there and i usually snag more of them on accident and get mad and leave. we usually catch all of our shad for bait there
