Chances are that if you've been fishing for any amount of time, or perhaps even if you're a new angler, you've hit some dry spells when it comes to catching fish. After all, we do call it "fishing". If we were always successful we would surely call it "catching"!
Yes, it's been a while, but I'm back on the water. To say the past year has been a little tough is a bit of an understatement, but there's always someone who is less fortunate so I'm not complaining.
On Saturday, September 8, yak anglers came out in strong numbers to fish the last regular-season Saturday in the Canoe KY ECKFS. The cooler temperatures of late have been ideal for fishing, and with a high of 78 degrees this day was no exception. The clouds and chances of rain did not deter the faithful, nor did they turn into much of a problem as the day progressed.
We all know summer is soon to be a thing of the past and the cooler fall temperatures are beginning to roll into Kentucky. Not to mention we’ve had a few drops of rain to fall (ok, more than a few). All of these added together equal good signals to the Kentucky angler that fall fishing seaon is upon us and the action is heating up.
The summer temperatures are still holding, though they were a little milder for the Wednesday evening ECKFS hosted by Canoe KY. There was a good turnout, and a good night of fishing was waiting. The top five anglers turned in a grand total of 144.75”. Not too shabby for approximately three hours of fishing time.
On Wednesday, August 15, there was a good turnout for the Canoe KY ECKFS. With weather pretty much as expected for the middle of August and the water levels strong, fishing turned out to be very good for this evening’s tournament.
The August 4, 2012 stop on the Elkhorn Creek Fishing Series had a great turnout. With several YakAngler members placing in the top five; the Canoe Kentucky kayak fishing tournament produced a lot of great river Smallmouth and Largemouth bass.
This past Sunday evening, we fished from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm in the ECKFS. Since this week's Wednesday tourney fell on the 4th, we decided to move the event up a couple of days to free folks up for their families on the holiday. Since it was technically a weekday tournament, we would count the two biggest fish we caught.
The Elkhorn Creek Kayak Fishing Series sponsored by Canoe Kentucky had it's mid week tournament this past Wednesday evening. Kayak anglers slugged it out on a 14 mile stretch of the Elkhorn Creek. The results after the first round of fishing are...
The ECKFS Kayak Fishing Tournament kicked off on Saturday, June 2, with a splash! With temperatures hovering in the mid-to upper 70s and partly cloudy skies, we couldn't have asked for nicer weather.
