    Welcome to IDO, glad ya found us.

    I’m out in central NE, so I don’t have a lot of info for you, but I’m sure someone will chime in. You might consider taking a short vacay to places like Lewis & Clark or maybe Branched Oak for some shore access. Good luck.

    Welcome to IDO. I am also not located in the Omaha area so don’t have any personal experience I can share with you. Here is some links to some resources NE G&P has put out that might help you as far as best locations for targeting your species of choice.

    As far as tactics go I think it is important to consider that nearly all of your bodies of water with quality fish there in the Omaha area are going to receive considerable pressure. I would do my best to try to fish during peak feeding times around sunrise and sunset as often as I could and I would fish the areas that pressured fish are likely to try and retreat to and some anglers may be hesitant to fish, thick cover, heavy weedllines, ect. Hopefully there is another member more familiar with the Omaha area that could chime in but good luck to you.

    now I’m mainly a walleye guy so but wehrspan has the best shore fishing. there particular spots where you can catch walleye, channel cats and blue’s largemouth all caught 20 yards from shore. p.m. me and ill give you the best location on the lake and you can fish it from shore

    Bank fishing, boat fishing, don’t make no difference. Pick the best waters and GO FISH!

    “HuskerDB” has already given you a couple of great resources, use ’em.

    When I lived in Omaha I used to fish the 156th street bridge area on Wehrspann. It’s easy to access and is one of the best spots on the lake. It used to have great crappie fishing in the spring. Have fun!
