Public fishing on Kansas’ Mined Land Wildlife Area can be surprisingly good

The Mined Land Wildlife Area, one of the biggest blocks of public land available to fishermen in Kansas, covers 14,500 acres and contains more than 1,000 strip pits in Cherokee, Crawford and Labette counties. That adds up to 1,500 acres of water, some of it laden with bass.
