Hi there,

Does anyone know a Kansas lake or reservoir closest to Denver? If you know, please give me a name and approximately how many hours from Denver. I only know Cedar Bluff, but don't want to drive 5 hours to get to it.
I appreciate any info about the lake. I plan to go fishing for crappie either this weekend or the next. Thanks

All the good Kansas lakes are at least 5 hours away, including Cedar Bluff, Sebelius (aka Norton), Kirwin, Webster, and Wilson.

If you hit Cedar Bluff, Boy Scout cove is the place for big crappie. Minnows or small shad colored spinnerbaits.
If the 8 lb largemouth hits your spinnerbait, it's the one I lost last year.

Thanks everyone for the info. Now if I can convince my buddy for a 5 hours trip to Cedar Bluff. I heard that the crappie useually get in their full spawn the first week of May. Again, thanks

Forgot another bait that worked well at CB for crappie is the 3 in. Sassy Shad in baby bass color. It has a flat knob on the tail.
Swim it parallel the smaller stick ups and the crappie will
grab it. You will get some white bass too.
Tell your friend he could have a 100 fish day between the two of you. Then if you don't, tell him you got some bad advice.

Thanks Don and Hammer. Hammer, do you really think it is that easy to catch so many crappie at Cedar Bluff even for a rookie who never fished at Cedar Bluff? I hope we won't come home empty handed.

LTF,
I was exaggerating so you could get your friend to make the drive. Exaggerating, lying, embellishing, BSing, all fisherman terms.

Cool, I think I will have to make a trip there next weekend. If I don't catch too many crappie, your guys have to reimburse me for the gas.
