The lake remains about a half foot below conservation pool even with the recent rains. Boating hazards are more of a concern when one is unfamiliar with the lake and especially when the lake levels are low. One way to make things safer in this situation is to prepare for the unexpected by always wearing your life jacket and have a plan if you were to have a boating problem.
The fish feeders will soon be removed for the season. Fishing activity for crappie is best in deeper water over the brush or in flooded timber. Wiper fishing is good especially with some wind and trolling through the numerous shad schools. Night fishing using lights can be very productive and catfishing is always a constant at Pomona Lake.
When boating, have the proper number of life jackets, be aware of changing weather, the possibility of unseen boating hazards and make sure your boat is in good operating condition! Earlier this year two people drowned in Kansas while trying to recover dropped items from the water! Don't Be A Sinker! Wear a life jacket!! The Kansas Department of Wildlife & Parks has a zero tolerance policy for lifejacket violations.
