    Anyone know some good places to get down to the Kansas river between Manhattan and Lawrence? Maybe even Lawrence and KC. I don't mind walking to get there, but let me know if there are good places where I can get my truck close. As soon as it thaws out around here I am going to be ready to go...Thanks

    I"ll take fishing a the kansas river in lawrence anyday:006: The Flatheads and channels pulled out of the river. Would make any catfishermen happy and the blue comes up to lawrence when the water is high enough. You See that blue that Warcaft1975 is holding that came from lawrence. Were you ask I can't tell you were at, that has been sworn a fisherman seceret. But as far as Kc never fished there personally so i'm not going to knock it. I just not really convinced of the safety with fishing there, after all to stories of people chunking rocks from bridges and people stealing from you. The choice is yours. All i Have to say is Lawrence is a excellent fishing spot.:0a17: :haha:
    Just stop by somtime and lets fish.

    "KC" covers a lot of area, not just downtown. I've come closer to getting shot out in the boondocks on the Missouri River. Just some d/a shooting his handgun off into the river, and wasn't paying attention to anything else going on. I'll be fishing a lot more out of downtown this year, and if anything happens, you'll hear about it.

    You tell me one boat ramp or town that does not have stories of theft and vandalism.

    There is theft and vandalism everywhere! That wasn't the question or the point. He asked where there are good places to go fishing on the kansas river? I told him about lawrence and that i have no idea of the fishing in KC so i wasn't going to knock it. That only personally safety is brought up more in the Kc area. Cause you hear about it more. Why you ask ? it makes the local paper,news our is told to us here on the boc.

    thats right fishing in lawrence sucks and there is too much theft and what not going on around here k.c is a much better place so go hang out up there and keep the rest of the k.c jokers up there with ya. all they do is cause problems down here anyway.i like my town the way it is.the less people think its great the less jokers we have

    Threads up to 14 posts...........it's building:crazy:

    Think I'll start pork loin brining for tomorrow, then get the fixings together for Chicken enchiladas tonight..........after that I think I'll watch the snow melt, it'll be more fun than worrying about an ice covered river:smile2:

    If we have a whole week of weather like we're having today I think most of the snow and ice will be gone down here. I may have to go donw to Kaw or Keystone next weekend. Probably Kaw since I'll have to be home in front of the TV at 5 PM. Is the new addition to the water works going to make your job harder or easier Charlie?

    Harder to start with because of on-site construction. Will be easier after that because of automation. We've not had a Direct of Utilities for almost 2 years and now we had an assistant director resign...........I've a feeling my role and schedule in the waterplants may change soon, along with a loss in OT(about 5G a year). Only 12 years till retirement, going to start hammering the IRA's. Can't wait to get the hell out of NE Kansas. You still planning on OK??

    Put as much as possible into your savings Charlie. 12 years will fly by faster than you can even imagine. I think you would like Oklahoma. With the exception of trapping, all their laws and taxes beats the hell out of Blue Nosed Kansas.
    I am planning to buy some land or a house at Keystone this year and moving there in a couple of years. Tom (Old Prowler) is almost within sight of the Mannford boat ramp and I think I can find something pretty close to him. By the time you get down there I'll be a full fledged Okie. I'm already a Sooners fan so won't have any problems there. Except that they will be my number two team and I'll have to sign up for the Jayhawk network so I don't miss any of their games. Charlie you need to spend a weekend running jugs with me on Keystone this spring.
    How have you been doing Tom? I'm still trapping beaver and rats. The fur is too rubbed on most of the cats and coyotes now to make it worthwhile killing them. I'm getting a real itch to catch some fish.
