    Thats no joke.Its one of only 3 navigable rivers in KS and you only have 2 ramps that I know of and they might as well be in OK.:smile2:There is a lot of untouched water in that river and I wanna touch it.

    thats what i have to deal w/ here in topeka. we have 1 ramp on the outskirts of town on the east side. the south side of the kaw at the weir has no access due to the water plant. so in order to fish the current ya need a boat or fish the pocket on the south side. to get to the weir from the ramp ya have to go up river several miles and go through a tank of gas

    Dan, they built ti under the west side of the bridge. You get to it at the first street and turn down the alley.

    I live in Wamego, and look at the progress on the ramp several times a week. Can't wait! Just got back from MO. with a new jet and plan on doing a lot of catch and release if they cooperate.
