Has anyone done much Yak fishing in this area? I moved to Madison recently from Green Bay. I’m looking for some calm areas that will make fishing from a sit in kayak a little more enjoyable. I get frustrated frequently switching between a paddle and rod. I have an anchor but I know it’s not rigged properly (taking care of that this weekend). I fish for panfish, mainly bluegills, crappie, and smallmouth.
Should be OK
The Yahara is a river with mainly slow current so you should be OK on it. Generally shallow so you shouldn’t have much motorized traffic either. There are some nice musky in there as well. Haven’t paddled it yet but I have done my homework and it is now on my list.
