Hybrid Stripers in Kansas

Bill Butts

Recommended Posts

Greetings All!

Below is a post made my Forum member "stuart" on another topic.

Wanted to include it in this section for anyone looking for info on Kansas.

As you will see, they have many great opportunities for Wiper (their term, not mine) fishing, even many small lakes.

Please note the data is from May 2005, and will surely be updated in the near future.

Thanks for the link, Stuart.......

Here is a link to some lakes in Kansas with good wiper fishing, based on the fish and game statistics.


I have not fished Webster but I hear it is good. Webster is about a 5 hour drive from my house, however I have good fishing closer so I have not made that trip. We also have good striper fishing in Wilson Lake as well.

The spillway below Perry produced a new state record 22# fish this last summer so that may be a place to try as well.

I mainly fish Marion Resevoir which has good numbers of good size fish.

Hope this helps.

Yes, many great lakes in KS for Hybrids. First I have never fished Perry, but have always heard good stories about it. Next I would have to say Milford would be your next best bet at catching a lunker wiper. I have caught quite a few out of milford and would say that is my favorite lake to fish. Lake Cheney just west of Wichita is another great hybrid lake. They have stripers as well and have large fish due to the explosion of white perch in the lake. Lake Wilson if you want to catch some big stripers. Not as good as Beaver, but for KS pretty good lake. I was lucky enough to catch my first Wiper at Milford 2 years ago and WOW, what a great time that was. Waiting for the time I catch one on my fly rod!
