Here is an email string that I sent to the KDOW:

Hello. My name is Brian. I am interested in collecting on private
property the following species:

Etheostoma spectabile
Percina kathae

I do have a Kansas Fishing Permit. Are there any other permits required to
keep these species in an aquarium?

Also, is it acceptable to sell or trade these fish to other hobbyists? I
wouldn't say my intention is to start a commercial operation, I just want
enough to study in my home aquariums. There are a few other people in our
club that are interested in keeping and breeding native Kansas fish.

Thank you for your time!



Your fishing license should cover what you would like to do if all you'll be
collecting are orangethroat darters and logperch, but you cannot sell these
fish. It is against Kansas statutes to sell any native species of animals.
Make sure what you are collecting is not threatened, endangered, or a
species in need of conservation (SINC) either.

If you ever have questions, refer to the following section of our web site
to see what is threatened or endangered, or SINC.


Let me know if you have any other questions.

The interesting thing is no creek or river is private anymore. My uncle bought land in Jackson County, KS, and he was told he could not buy the creek running through his property, because all creeks and rivers are public property now in KS.
