Let Us Know If You Are Coming
Note: This is not a tournament. Rather this is a community gathering for a bunch of kayak anglers to get together and enjoy the sport. Getting on the water together, sitting by the campfire, and interacting with each other outside of a competitive atmosphere is what it’s all about. There are plenty of trails offering tournaments and we hope that you interact with those trails as well throughout the season.
Location Specific Notes: Camping reservations can be made here: Kiser Lake Campground
Dates: We have specified the nights most will be camping. In this case, we will be camping Friday night and Saturday night. Some people camp a third night and go home on Monday. Many people choose to stay and fish for a while after packing up their camping gear on Sunday.
Camping: A number of people have reserved the sites: 073 and 072 this is where we will be hanging out each night.
Non-campers: If you are not able to camp and wish to join us, simply arrive at one of the two spots listed above and join us on the water!
Fishing: Kiser Lake offers good catches of largemouth bass, bluegill, channel catfish, crappie and wiper. Five fishing piers are located on the lake. A valid Ohio fishing license is required.
Exploring: We will always suggest the buddy system so that in case one person needs help, there is another there to offer assistance. Kiser Lake is no motor lake spanning 396 acres and while not small, it is usually the case where you can see other anglers either in kayaks or on the bank. KFO will be fishing together in most cases and be spread out across the lake. It is possible to paddle from one side of the lake to the other within an hour or so depending on your speed. We will be camping and fishing rain or shine.
