Linda and I purchased a couple of Old Town’s loon kayaks many years ago, and liked them so much we purchased a third one two years later so our kids could join us on the water. Almost immediately, I started fishing from the kayak, particularly on the Kennebec River between Waterville and Sidney, a section of the river where boating is nearly impossible due to shallow water, lots of rocks, and a series of rapids.
I would fish about half way to Sidney, to a series of rapids, and then paddle back to Waterville. I could return to the launch site in about an hour of paddling. I did try fly fishing for the smallmouth bass there, but found that to be difficult from the kayak, so I mostly stuck to my lightweight spinning road. The kayak is very maneuverable and I could even get into a few side waters in it. And yes, I caught tons of fish.
