“Northern New Mexico has some of the best trout fishing I’ve ever experienced. They have it all from East to West. Big rivers, tributaries, creeks, lakes – you name it, there’s fish in there.” Check out this fly fishing adventure from ACK employee, Drew Arnold!
Technically, any kayak can fulfill the role of a fishing kayak if you just bring a rod out with you. But there are kayaks specifically designed for fishing, and then there are subsets of fishing kayaks best designed for certain types of fishing. We decided to feature a few of the most popular kayak picks for the 4 most common types of fishing:
I’m still learning the ways of the kayak fishing game and on my most recent adventure was reminded of the importance to not make any assumptions while you’re on the water. Our Graphic Designer Drew and I had the opportunity to join Ryan Schaper and Nate Wilson from our Austin store on a trip down the San Marcos River here in Texas.
I recently got hired on full-time at Austin Canoe & Kayak as a graphic designer on the marketing team. Among my first few weeks, I got the opportunity to take a “Go Play Day.
When it comes to fishing, the majority of my personal experience is with a conventional rod, not fly fishing. However, hanging out with fly fishing aficionados like Ryan Schaper and Nate Wilson from our Austin store has certainly sparked an interest in getting more involved with the fly fishing scene.
A couple of weeks ago I had an opportunity to take a trip with my second in command (assistant manager) Jordan, and full time store associate Nate, and one of our other buddies for three days of camping and non stop coastal fishing.We all worked on Monday and came to work packed and ready to go.
For our first installment in the brand new “Meet the Team” series we’d like to introduce Ryan Schaper, Austin Store Manager and KATS Tournament Director! He’s our resident kayak fly fishing junky and lover of all Texas rivers.

Every year Texas Parks and Wildlife and other private organizations like Trout Unlimited, stock the Guadalupe river with thousands of rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) and hundreds of fisherman take their shot at hooking this amazing fish.
Around the last week in April I received a phone call from Thomas, the owner of Diablo Paddlesports, about helping out for a local children’s event. He told me they would be working with Generation Outdoors to teach fatherless kids how to kayak and fly fish.
