Feeder Creek Of A Local Lake


Recommended Posts

This is a young lake off I-70 in Blue Springs....



Sneaking up in someones back yard....


Nothing but green...where's the water...and a bridge ahead...


The bridge...


I went under and turned around ..being it didn't go much farther..got out of the kayak and relieved myself.. got back in.... and back under the bridge....notice the shadow cast under the bridge breaks up the green reveling the under water....



Heading back out...


Out of the green into the blue.....



This bridge is part of the walking trail around the lake....under it in the distance is the lake dam which can be seen from I-70 just on the other side of the dam...

Pretty place and some great pictures. Enjoy it while you can. Feeder creeks are short lived things on new lakes. Soil erosion will soon fill it till it becomes an encroaching mud flat that will eventually fill the entire lake. Of course this the the case with all impoundment's.

You are right Greasy B. I have seen that here on our local county lake. When they first re-opened the lake, the southern feeder was wadable, muddy, soft, but wadable and I caught hundreds of bass and bluegill from it in the first summer. Now, the weeds have taken over and it is too soft to get near the water.

It is called lake of remembrance off Adams Dairy parkway.

And a fish story to go along with it....A few days ago I headed out "cloudy to the north but little wind. By the time I got to the lake it was windy and white capping... a cold front moving in from the north...So I paddled up the lake and under the walking bridge in the photo.....

followed some ducks up the creek and close to the old hand made bridge where the water gets clear I see a little bass then I see a lunker..thinking to my self she is over 15''....I mosey up a little further past the little bridge, to where the creek ends and turn around, I get out of my kayak to relieve myself ,.....then start fishing my way back ...I'm using my ultralight with a 1/32 oz. jig with a speckled lime green grub....I catch a 10 incher........then just past the bridge..where the creek starts to narrow with under water vegetation.....


I cast up and onto the top of the green stuff...drag it a little bit..into the water and something hit it.....I hooked the big one I had just earlier paddled over... the bass didn't put up much of a fight ,turned out to be about 18'' long and it had sort of a deformed or bulging knot on both sides of the tail .....I released her...Se was an old fish.......Ausume when you can get a preview of a fish in a close quarters before you catch it....It happened to me at the mouth of the creek at prairie lee lake last year....floating in their and seeing a big bass and then later catching a 19''er on a grasshopper....
