Trout Season in Kansas Begins Today

By Quinn O’Hara

Today, December 1st, marks the opening day of trout season in Kansas.

In October of this year, the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks announced several state-wide changes to the trout stocking program.

Now, trout stockings will take place from December 1st to the end of March. Additionally, the KDWP will stock less often but with higher densities of trout – an indicated preference of the anglers surveyed.

The KDWP keeps a list of which lakes and reservoirs are stocked with trout for the season on its website. It separates them into two categories: lakes requiring a trout permit for all anglers, and lakes that require a trout permit only for those fishing for trout.

Visit the KDWP website for more information of official rules and regulations.
