Kokomo Lake

 This 484-acre impoundment is located three miles east of Kokomo in Howard County.  Boat launching is free and outboard motors are permitted.

From 1989 through 1997, the reservoir was stocked with saugeye, a walleye x sauger cross.  Concerns for the genetic integrity of native sauger downstream of Kokomo Reservoir prompted fisheries biologists to change the stocking strategy from hybrid walleye to walleye.  Starting in 1998, Kokomo has been stocked each year with walleye fingerlings at 50 per acre.

The most recent measure of fish harvest was in 1996 when a seven month long creel survey was conducted.  An estimated 821 hybrid walleye were harvested and 790 were caught and released.  Average length was 15.3 inches and highest harvest occurred in May (63%) followed by June (17%). 

An updated measure of fish harvest, fishing pressure and angler interest in walleye fishing at Kokomo is planned for 2003. 

Kokomo Reservoir received 25,000 fingerling walleye (51.7 per acre) in June (1.6 inch average length). In four hours of sampling on October 3 and 17, 86 walleye were collected. Of those, 64 were YOY, 12 were one-year-old, nine were two-year-old, and one was age three-year-old. Catch rate for YOY was 16 per hour.

Length range of YOY walleye collected was 7.2-11.2 inches. One-year-old walleye were 14.0-16.2 inches and catch rate was three per hour. Lengths of two-year-old walleyes were 16.6-19.5 inches and the three-year-old was 22.9 inches.
