Just swap out your rods and lures according to the species present and start paddling in search of your treasure.
Freshwater Kayak Fishing Opportunities
For many kayak anglers, some of the most accessible fishing grounds are in freshwater. Lakes and man-made reservoirs are the obvious choices for kayak fishing as maneuvering and fishing in still-water versus water with a current is much easier, especially for beginners. Species like trout, bass, walleye, pike, musky, and catfish can all be found in the many freshwater lakes throughout North America. Chances are, there’s a lake near you that’s perfect for a full day paddling and catching.
Rivers, Creeks, and out flow fishing
Kayak fishing in rivers can be an exciting challenge that will test both your paddling and angling skills. The continuous pull of the current takes some getting used to and often times the best solution is to simply go with the flow. Trout, salmon, and steelhead are some of the most thrilling species to chase in rivers on a kayak, but in some regions like the Southeastern U.S., striped bass dominates the attention of river-bound kayak anglers.
