I have been doing a lot of practicing, getting ready for the tournament which will be held on the 15th next month. My hips and legs aren't what they use to be and I'm having trouble walking and turning them making it necessary for me to flare my right foot out in order to compensate for the decrease in range of motion. In spite of my physical limits, I am striking the ball well and accurately and I am maintaining my game which is bogie or better. This morning I am giving my game a break and instead I am taking my nine year old granddaughter out for a golf lesson and she can do all the ball striking, pitching, and putting. The fish are still out there but they are going to have to wait until after the tournament. Make a great day!

About my site:

THERE IS NO CHARGE FOR MY SERVICES. Hunt Fort Riley is a NON PROFIT WEB SITE I do not ask for or expect donations. I provide this site for the sole purpose of getting people out of the barracks and into the outdoors, introducing soldiers, youth and the handicap to the sport of hunting and fishing while providing healing to wounded warriors, and help those who desire to discover the many resources available on Fort Riley while doing so in a safe and legal way with the emphasis on safety.

I am available to guide on a first come first serve basis. If you would like to schedule a fishing trip drop me an e-mail with some dates and the type of fishing you're interested in doing. Remember that my services are FREE but my priority is military, handicap, youth and novice (beginners).

Fort Riley Kansas is home to 29 lakes and ponds as well as being bordered by the Kansas and Republic Rivers..  These are home to a wide variety of species of fish.  Good numbers of Waleye, Largemouth Bass, Crappie, Blue Gill, Sunfish, Channel Cat, Rainbow Trout and White Bass are taken every year. 

30 Years of Fishing Fort Riley.

I started fishing post in the 70s. After retiring from the army in 1988, I bought a home and have fished the  post every year since.  I own a small 12 foot John boat with trolling motor which is more than adequate for the ponds and lakes located on post. .  There is a common misconception that civilians can't fish on the fort.  There are some special requirements that have to be met but fishing on post is open to everyone and since the post joined with the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks, and Tourism you don't need a Fort Riley Access permit to fish.  

What you will need to fish on post

In addition to a valid Kansas Resident or non-resident fishing license. post regulations have specific requirements and sign in/out procedures.
