Coffey County Lake, which provides water to Wolf Creek Nuclear Operating Center, is slowly becoming known in fishing circuits as a prime spot for big catches. The warm, circulating waters create an environment that both amateur and professional fishermen enjoy with much success. For smaller lakes (but not smaller fish),¬†check out one of the city lakes in the county located in Lebo, New Strawn, and Gridley (Lebo even features a special pond for youth fishing). Fishing the Neosho River at the Burlington City Dam is just one of the reasons why Burlington was once¬†billed the "Catfish Capitol of the World". And finally the largest fishing lake is John Redmond Reservoir, located just to the west of Coffey County Lake.
