Any one ever fish these wildlife areas? I am thinking of run out to the plains, where it is peaceful and quiet, sitting on the bank and relaxing.

I hear they are stocked with bass, bluegill and catfish. Any size to them?

I went out to Karval ice fishing with the kids 2 years ago... It was a blast!!! We had the whole place to ourselves and we just nailed the trout. They were all stockers from 11-16".. We probably caught a hundred of em. Let most of them go except the ones that we gullet hooked so we saved those for dinner. Karval should be really good as I'm sure they stocked it in the fall before ice up and they may have put some in this spring already. I'm sure there are plenty of bass and panfish too. A friend of mine caught some great catfish in Karval several years ago and has had luck with trout at Kinney. I would start at Karval - set one rod up with powerbait or salmon eggs and another you could throw light spinning tackle of even some flies...We fished on the East shoreline where you can drive over the dam around the hill and park near the water. I would be interested to see how you do!!

I head out to Karval atleast once every spring. you can't keep the stocker bows off your hook -- they will hit anything. also the lake is full of bluegill -- me and a buddy caught about 100 last spring on a bobber and a worm. no real size to them. Also caught a ton of catfish in the 10-12 inch range on a bobber and a worm.

1eyered,

Been there and done that, my boy and I did that at Karval for doves 2 years ago. We had some bites but did not catch anything. Rained like gangbusters on us that day too.

Try this link, I tested it.  Its for the State Wildlife Areas page.

http://wildlife.state.co.us/swa

At the bottom of the page use the drop box to find the name of the wildlife areas.

I am not real good on my duck identification. I did see ducks, and I am pretty sure some of them were teal. But I could be wrong too.

If you like buffalo heads you will do well at karval. I see a fair amount of greenheads on karval in the spring but they are long gone by early season. I have not seen any teal -- but that is not saying they are not there.
