Recreational opportunities abound with the Neosho River offering fine fishing for catfish, bass, and the annual paddlefish season occurring in Mid-to-late March. In fact, Chetopa is the "Catfish Capital of Kansas" due to its excellent year-round fishing for catfish and by historically having the largest catches of catfish in the state. The city is also known for large paddle fish (known locally as spoonbill) below the low-river dam.
Hunting for quail, dove, and white-tail deer is excellent.
