Rainbow trout will be stocked March 6 in a pair of recreational ponds at Fort Riley, Kansas, according to a release from the fort’s public affairs office.
The Junction City and Geary County Conventions and Visitors Bureau announced Monday morning that Milford Reservoir will host the 2018 Bassmaster College Series Classic Bracket, slated to run Aug. 14-16.

Catfish Chasers organizer David Studebaker notes huge growth in tournament series, sport of catfishing
With the Catfish Chasers Tournament Series coming up on its 10th season, organizer David Studebaker thinks the best is yet to come.
There’s good reason for his optimism. In July, for example, a night tournament sponsored by Reed Chevrolet in St. Joseph, Mo., will offer a free 2018 Chevrolet 4x4 pickup truck if someone weighs in a bag of more than 225 pounds. That’s in addition to the $5,000 guaranteed first-place prize. This isn’t a small-time tournament series anymore.
If it seems like the lineup for the 2018 Topeka Boat and Outdoor Show is all over the map, it’s because it is — by design.
“Yes, there is something at the show for all those that love Kansas outdoors,” said Phil Taunton, organizer and host of the What’s in Outdoors radio program on KVOE-AM (1400) in Emporia.
After a successful first showing in 2017, Crappie University will return to northeast Kansas in 2018 to help teach anglers the newest techniques for targeting big slabs.
The Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism is hosting a yearlong birdwatching competition for birders of all ages.
