The Western New York Kayak Fishing Association is having its Spring 2012 Season Opener at 9am on 31 March 2012. We will meet and launch at Bayside Boat and Tackle and will have our choice of paddling up into Irondequoit Creek or in the bay to fish. After fishing, we will plan to go have brunch somewhere nearby.
In past WNYKFA openers at Mendon Ponds, we’ve had to break ice to get to open water, so dress warm because it will likely still be a bit chilly.
Dress appropriately for the weather and bring your kayak and fishing gear. Most freshwater game fish and pan fish species can be caught in Irondequoit Bay, so you can target your preferred species. It is a good time of year for catching brown trout and steelhead as they are moving up into the creek.
Here is the address for the opener location:
Bayside Boat and Tackle (right next door to Oak Orchard Paddle Center)
1350 Empire Blvd
Rochester NY 14609
Hope to see you there!
