Fishing report for July 31

Brent’s best bet: Wilson Lake in central Kansas has produced impressive fishing this week. The stripers are hitting topwater lures early and late where they have been chasing shad. Smallmouth bass also are being caught on crankbaits, plastic bait and minnows in rocky areas. And catfish have been caught on cut bait on the main lake.
