Robert E. Talbot Conservation Area Prospect Report

The area contains a four-acre lake, a seven-acre lake, and numerous ponds. Pond 1, located on the south portion of the area, is the four-acre lake that has a shallow gravel boat ramp and easy access to walk-in fishing locations. This lake will have good fishing for bluegill, but poor for largemouth bass.  Pond 29, located near the area shop, is a one-acre pond that should provide good largemouth bass and bluegill fishing.

Dorris Creek Prairie Conservation Area Prospect Report

This area has three ponds. All ponds will have continued good fishing for channel catfish as they are stocked every year. Pond 1, located closest to the parking lot, is a four-acre pond that will have poor fishing for largemouth bass and bluegill. Pond 2, located between Pond 1 and Pond 3, is a 1-acre pond that should provide fair fishing for largemouth bass and bluegill.

Kellogg Lake Prospect Report

Kellogg Lake is a 25-acre Community Assistance Program lake cooperatively managed by the Missouri Department of Conservation and the City of Carthage. Kellogg Lake contains Largemouth bass, Channel catfish, and a variety of sunfish species which can provide good fishing. Channel catfish should continue to provide good fishing as they are stocked every year into the lake. Catch-and-Release for largemouth bass will be good.  Sunfish fishing should be good but very few fish over 6 inches will be caught.
