Is Big Bend any good? I passed it on my way to Beck the other day. Is it kayak accessible?

Yeah they have a boat launch so you could drop it there. I've fished it, definitely tough fishing but there are bass there you just have to work for them. Huge carp as well and a few pike that sneak in when the spillway to the DPR floods

Big Bend has various fish in it... I've yet to catch anything other than blue gill tho but the times i've fished it was either spawning time or a very very sunny hot day. I believe u can yak in there but im not positive. They have a little boat drop on the northwest side. It was thriving with small perch and blue gill last outing. But i did see a lot of bass swimming around...even a white bass???? Will try again sooner than later.
My name is Jesus and im addicted to fishin :D
