Now for the report:
Fishing was poor; just a small bluegill. Ticks were everywhere. Definitely a place for repellant.
Turns out the place is bigger than I thought. I did a quick scout in the morning as I passed through and discovered another pond besides the two I'd seen from the road. That evening I saw another big one that was concealed and a small one. I think there is probably at least one more in there, based on some alleyways cut through the fields and woods.
This place is also adjacent to the Delaware river (known for white bass runs) and a fish and wildlife area. There is a big reservoir just a little ways downstream. I can access this place within 30 minutes. An extended stay is easy since I camp, and I have access to a cabin near there.
There are many possibilities. I've toyed with the idea of a float tube, and it would be good here as a lot the banks are steep. Maybe that will be part of my vacation next summer...
BTW, I can add one more county to my project of fishing every county in Kansas. Surprisingly, we have excellent fishing here. The state manages lakes well and its lease program that opens access to places like this has won awards.
