KDWP Commission Walleye initiative Meeting
The KDWPT Commission is meeting again April 21 in Wichita at the Great Plains Nature Center. Meeting agenda can be found at http://ksoutdoors.com/content/download/47116/481453/version/1/file/April+21-2016.pdf . The Kansas Walleye Initiative is not a scheduled discussion item, but will likely be a popular comment topic. Since the KWA was not able to be represented at the last Commission meeting in Topeka during the roll out of the Kansas Walleye Initiative the Wichita meeting location may prove more convenient for your members.
If attending the Commission meeting is not possible then contacting the Commissioners via phone/email is an option. I’ve provided contact info for the Commissioners below or it can also be found on Page 3 of the 2016 Kansas Fish Regulations Summary.

Commission Meeting and Public Hearing
The “Kansas Walleye Initiative” that the Fisheries Division has been diligently working on for over a year continues to move forward. Last week, the Division was given the go ahead to proceed with the Initiative and take it public. The Kansas Walleye Initiative (or KWI) will be presented to the public for the first time at the March 24, 2016 KDWPT Commission meeting in Topeka, KS.
Having KWA members and other walleye enthusiasts present to participate in discussion relating to the Initiative would be beneficial in assisting the Division to provide the best walleye program possible for 2017 and beyond in Kansas waters.
