USA Kayak Fishing Team

About The USA Kayak Fishing Team

The USA Kayak Fishing program was founded in 2019 by USAngling, a 501C3 organization, to create National Teams for competition in World and Pan American sportfishing championships.  USA Kayak fishing encourages diversity in angling and values the contributions, presence and perspectives of different groups of anglers.  We are aware that kayak fishing is growing globally and that it is poised to become an Olympic sport in the near future. We thank volunteers, sponsors and athletes for supporting USA Kayak Fishing.
