Ohio Kayak Fishing

Kayak Fishing Ohio


Camp riverside or lakeside with fellow kayakers. Sit by the fire and talk with fellow anglers about the day or plan for the next.

Camp at State and private parks with anglers new to kayaking as well as veterans to the sport.

Learn from other kayak anglers or pass on a bit of knowledge. Whatever the case may be, rest assured that our events are all about fishing and becoming a better angler.

As of 2017 Kayak Fishing Ohio is no longer a tournament trail and is now devoted to providing a platform that allows kayak anglers to discover new locations casually. New opportunities to discover, learn, explore, fish, camp, and enjoy meeting fellow anglers are a focal point for our events. We camp because we enjoy the outdoors. We fish because we enjoy the sport. We explore because we are in search of bigger fish. We do all of the above to put ourselves in amazing locations, around amazing people, and all in the great state of Ohio.
