Property Description

A rare and unique opportunity to own a piece of property that holds one of the oldest privately held lakes in Kansas is now available. Lots of history comes along with this property that has roughly 50 acres of surface water that is known as Katy Lake.

Katy Lake was hand dug in 1914 to provide a refilling station for steam engines going through the area. Over the years steam engines were replaced and the property was repurposed into a recreational lake for the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railway Company employees and their families. Since 1994, there has only been 2 other private owners and has been kept a secret until now.

Managed for trophy bass, this lake will produce 4-8 pound bass and slab crappie on a normal day and has a confirmed 13 pounder to its name. This is truly a credit to the 100% catch and release rule on all large bass. Once the crappie spawn hits, your fish basket will be full in no time so be prepared with a sharp knife and hot oil to feed a large group people.

All the open water and back water slews tend to be a magnet and hold a large amount and variety of waterfowl. There are lots of places to construct hunting blinds on the water's edge. As a bonus, mature and thick timber around the shoreline and surrounding areas hold plenty of deer and turkey, making it a true year-round sportsman's paradise.

With propane gas and electric already being utilized on the property by a small home overlooking the the dock and lake, if you can imagine your dream home or cabin, the location is set! Less than a half mile off the blacktop, the rolling hill down to the lake will offer plenty of privacy from the outside world.

Possibilities are endless for this tract whether you are looking for an investment property, fishing and hunting paradise, build site, or fishing lease for income, Katy Lake has it all. Call today to get a private showing to see how much this property has to offer.
