Expand catfishing horizons at Pomona Lake as floatline season opens

PRATT – Want to expand your catfishing horizons? Floatline fishing, sometimes called jugline fishing, is a fun and effective method for catching catfish in reservoirs.

If you remember the excitement of watching a bobber when you were a kid, floatline fishing is bobber fishing on steroids. Big “bobbers” and big fish.

The floatline fishing season opened July 15 and closes September 15, and it’s allowed on 12 select reservoirs, including Pomona, Council Grove, Elk City, Fall River, Glen Elder, Hillsdale, John Redmond, Kanopolis, Lovewell, Tuttle Creek, Toronto and Wilson.

Floatline fishing consists of free drifting large floats, each fitted with line, a hook, and weight. Floats drift with the breeze, suspending the baited hook. When the float begins bobbing up and down or moving unnaturally, you’ve got a bite.

Floatline fishing is allowed from sunrise to sunset and anglers are allowed up to eight floatlines, which must be under immediate supervision of the angler at all times, and removed from the water when fishing ceases. Floats must be made only from plastic, wood, or foam and shall be a closed-cell construction, meaning a solid body incapable of containing water.

The Osage County Sheriff’s Office has reported that an Ottawa woman was found dead in Pomona Lake on Sunday.

An autopsy is being conducted to determine the cause of Steward’s death.

“The autopsy will help determine whether Mrs. Steward had drowned or possibly died of hypothermia,” Dunn said in the release.

On Windy Hill: Let’s celebrate 50 years of Pomona Lake hospitality

Last week, a few folks sat down at Breck’s Green Acres, near Pomona Dam, for a cinnamon roll and coffee, and to discuss a milestone of a local landmark that has had notable impact on Osage County and its inhabitants for more than 50 years.

The topic of discussion was how to celebrate Pomona Lake’s 50th anniversary. The lake was dedicated in September 1964.

The gathering of local government employees, business people and interested citizens agreed the lake’s 50th birthday is something to celebrate. But also agreed was that funds are scarce for promoting and hosting a grand celebration, excepting possible grass-roots fundraising efforts. Federal, state and county governments are more strapped for cash now than any time in the lake’s 50 years, it seems.
