    Some friends of mine have been catching some nice channels out at Cheney lake this past week. They said they caught quit a few 10# fish on trot line and pole fishing.I think over the last few days they caught 25 fish. They were using fresh cut white perch for bait. Didnt know if to many people fish the lake on this site but thought I would let you know. Most of them have been fishing the west side of the lake. Wenzel cove is a really good spot to go. I might head out there this weekend to do some pole fishing but with everyone and there dog going to be on the lake just might fish the lil arkansas river up around the house. Well everyone have a safe and happy weekend:big_smile: Shawn

    Cheney will be pretty empty this weekend, the lake is so high, they have shut it down pretty much, at least for camping.

    I caught several channel cat last year at Cheney in the 15-20lb range, and one around 22lbs. All off of Heimerman point, and around the feeders on the south side of the lake.

    Shawn, should be good weekend, get up there in the upper end of that sucker, they expect the lake to come up 5' in the next few days, with all that water coming in there, the cats will either be gorging themselves, or so full they are about to pop!:crazy:
