Spawn question

Recommended Posts

Being really new at fishing, what water temp does the spawn usually start at?  I live in Olathe, Kanas and usually fish the city and county lakes (Heritage, Shawnee Mission Park and Cedar Lake).  The last reports I have seen the water temps are between 57 and 62 degrees.

It should be spawing time there if those water temps are in the lower 60s. Most of what I've seen and read is that the spawn really fires off when the water temps are in the mid to lower 60s.

Hey huskertko, I live in the same area you do and the SPAWN IS NOW.  Cedar is way too muddy to see bedding fish, but Shawnee Mission you should be able to see them.  Kill Creek is another Johnson Co. Lake on K-10.  I have been bed fishing out there the last three weeks.  You might want to give that a try.

YES. At Shawnee Mission Park(last year), I found a bunch of beds on the South West portion of the lake near the dam and also in the cove where the dog park is that are both accessible by bank. Normally fish will bed up first on the North side of the lake, but because of all the traffic that lake gets, they usually opt for the South side.

Kill Creek: Take K-10 west towards Lawrence. Get off at the Kill Creek Road Exit. Take a left (head south). Follow the signs. ENJOY. This is probably my favorite small body of water in the area. If you want to catch some off beds- walk to the opposite side of where the parking lot is. That whole side of the lake is a grassy sandy bottom flat, and it doesn't get as much pressure as the other side of the lake.
