Lacygne Reservoir

Recommended Posts

For those who don't know, this is the "big bass" lake in Kansas. Over the past several years there have been dozens of fish approaching the 10 lb. mark. According to the KDWP, this lake is excellent for both quality and quantity of largmouth bass. I can absolutely verify that. Hit the upper feeder creek channel and/or the riprap around the hot water outlet (Kansas power plant lake through May for outstanding fishing.

Know anything about catching Hybrids out of that lake?

The wiper population isn't real impressive, but the fish that are caught are above average size, at least the fish I have seen. Marion is my pick for best Wipers in Kansas. Smaller lake near Emporia. BTW, I accidently put this in the Strip Pits forum. LaCygne should ahve its own forum. Can anyone help me with that?

I fish La Cygne almost every week during the winter for bass and wipers. I've had some incredible days fishing for wipers and largemouth but it seems like you're either tearing them up or they won't touch anything. For wipers my most consistant baits are free lined live shad nose hooked with a small octopus hook and a swimbait. We catch a pretty fair number of them on rattletraps and jerkbaits also but mainly smaller fish.

The largemouth seem to like plastics, cranks, and jerkbaits most days. I've had good days with spinnerbaits, buzzbaits, and my biggest 5 fish limit (other than from Mexico) was a 30lb 2oz limit from La Cygne on a swimbait. The feeling of knowing you would have been culling 4 1/2 pounders in a tournament is pretty awesome. Lake gets pounded during the weekend, makes me glad to have Tuesday and Wednesday off instead. :hope-my-fake-smile-works-again:
