A sampling of Kansas lakes and streams is suggesting that 2012 will be a good year for anglers as the size and number of fish improve.

The Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism says the 16 district fisheries biologists spent the fall surveying state lakes and restocking fish. The samples indicate abundant populations of a variety of fish.

Fisheries section chief Doug Nygren says the outlook for crappie fishing is good because high water flooded woody areas to create new habitat. Conditions also will be right for catching larger species, such as largemouth bass and wipers.

A complete forecast will be available next month on the agency's
website and in the March-April edition of Kansas Wildlife and Parks
magazine.
