Fish Feeder Program
The Kansas Wildlife and Parks fish feeder
program is popular with anglers at many Kansas lakes. Weatherproof feeders located within
easy casting distance from shoreline concentrate fish so they’re easier to catch.
Anglers without boats especially appreciate these enhanced fishing opportunities, though
boaters make use of them as well. Channel catfish are usually the primary species caught
near feeders. These feeders located at Clark State Fishing
Lake hold 250 pounds of sinking pellets, enough to last for about 7-10 days.
They operate daily at 7:00 a.m., noon, and 7:00 p.m., though the fishing around them
remains good all day long. Statewide, about 350 feeders serve more than
500 Kansas lakes. CFAP and state fishing lakes are more likely to have them, where they help
increase carrying capacity while concentrating fish. The fish feeder program runs in summer
from May through August. A fish feeder in Kansas waters? Count on good
fishing. Wildlife and Parks is slopping the hogs to help you catch a lunker.
