The catfish have been delivered, the prediction is for great temperatures in the 60s, plus the Leavenworth Road Association is excited to be doing breakfast for opening day at Wyandotte County Lake, March 7, at the Marina Cafe.
The menu will be biscuits-and-sausage gravy, sausage patties, hash browns along with a choice of drink, coffee, milk or orange juice, all for $8, with a kid’s meal smaller portion for $5 for those under 10.
The bonus we are offering during this event is that we will listen to your “fish stories,” real or fiction, and we will believe every word.
Opening day at the lake is offered through the Unified Government Parks and Recreation Department.
Stop by the Marina to eat, visit and share your tales from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. Saturday, March 7. Wyandotte County Lake is located at 91st and Leavenworth Road in Kansas City, Kansas. Hours for fishing are 6 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. once the season opens.
