I was there in April and got skunked. To be fair, the wind was insane that day and bright sun probably didn't help. I would indeed like to get out there in the kayak - just haven't been hearing a lot of great reports the last few years.

Too many weeds were the fish are at. Slop, not my style.

I've fished there a number of times & not impressed.
Keep calm and fish on...

There's a fine line between fishing and just sitting there looking stupid

better off heading up north if youre looking for the skis
I have a Orange Ride kayak and I am usually fly fishing at Beck, Busse, or DPR. If you ever see me come say hello, I love meeting new people in the fishing world. Tight lines!

Kayaked it once and got skunked. How does that even happen?

It's a very challenging body of water! Lots of pressure....arguable more than even Busse when you consider that Mallard is smaller and literally the entire shoreline is accessible to fish. Not uncommon to see the banks lined with people. Best bet is to get offshore especially in the summer but the bite is still challenging.
