Kayak Fly Fishing Trips

If you haven’t tried fly fishing from a kayak or just looking for some pointers to dial in your game, the team at Louisville Paddlesports can help.  Kayak fishing is the fastest growing segment of the sports fishing industry and anglers have come to realize what a wonderful fishing platform the fishing kayak truly is. Our team of licensed guides will provide you everything you need for a memorable day on the water.  We have two trips to choose from; trout fishing on the Cumberland River and small-mouth bass on the Green River.  Each trip will begin with a safety brief and equipment overview, we will then embark on either a half or full day fishing trip in one of the state of Kentucky’s most beautiful and productive fisheries.  All trips include the use of a fully rigged fishing kayak or SUP, tackle, flies, shuttle service and all safety equipment.  We proudly use Orvis tackle on our fly fishing trips but you are welcome to utilize your own gear as well.  You will be required to have a valid Kentucky fishing license (a trout stamp must be included for all Cumberland River trips). We also offer custom trips on other local waterways such as Floyd's Fork, Harrod's Creek, Salt River and Guist Creek Lake. We specialize in fly fishing, but also accommodate customers who would like to use conventional fishing equipment.

 

We look forward to working with you to plan a great day of fishing! If you have any questions or would like to book a trip please do not hesitate to contact the shop at 502-822-1811 or visit us in person at our Louisville, KY store.  You can also reach out to either Rich Wilson (rich@louisvillepaddlesports.com) or Aaron Harlow (aaron@louisvillepaddlesports.com) directly for any guide or trip specific questions.
