  1. The plan is to put in at Rivers Edge Park and take out at the Williams Creek RR Bridge. We will have a map and experienced floaters on the trip to make for safe takeout.

  2. Right now the following folks are registered – Joe Cruse, Mike Arnold, Kevin Cottrell, Don Schrantz. Joe Hamilton wants to go but doesn’t have a kayak yet and would like to borrow (he said “rent”) one from a club member to see how it is to fish from one on an actual trip. Joe is very experienced kayaking, just not fishing while kayaking. If anyone has a spare sit on kayak he can use for this trip, I’ll come pick it up and Joe can ride with me. My trailer carries two boats. Please email me (mike@nkff.org)

  3. Hi guys it’s Joe Cruse,

    Make sure you have sturdy shoes for this float trip. There is lots of shallow water that you will need to drag your kayak over and you will need to walk along the bottom of the river (sand to small rocks). Also the majority of the time you will be pulling your kayaks up to shore and getting out to fish holes or rocky areas. We floated this stretch in early August and caught 35 smallmouths. Everyone will need a PFD to float and a kayak/canoe. Hope to see you guys on Saturday.

  4. Right now the following folks are registered – Joe Cruse, Mike Arnold, Kevin Cottrell, Don Schrantz, Joe Hamilton, Clint Osborne. We will email the Trip Plan Thursday night to all who have registered.
