KY Afield Outdoors: Three good stream floats for Smallmouth Bass

IMG_0701FRANKFORT, Ky. (June 16, 2016) Fishing for many species slows in the daytime hours during the heat of summer, but smallmouth bass who inhabit Kentucky streams bite willingly even on the hottest days.

Kentuckians who enjoy canoeing or kayaking are lucky to live in a state with bountiful amounts of cool, flowing water that hold smallmouth bass. It is hard to beat a summer day spent paddling a tree canopied Kentucky stream, navigating stream drops and catching smallmouth after smallmouth.

The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources’ webpage at www.fw.ky.gov holds a wealth of information about stream paddling. Click on the “Fish” tab, and the “Recreational Fishing” tab on the dropdown menu. Both the “Blue Water Trails” page and the “Stream Fisheries page” may be accessed here. These webpages have oodles of information on access sites, articles describing the floating and fishing, fishing tips and printable maps.

Kentucky anglers who want to catch some feisty stream smallmouth bass summer should try these three floats. Continue reading: KY Afield Outdoors: Three good stream floats for Smallmouth Bass
