Elkhorn Creek Kayak Fishing Series Results; September 8


On Saturday, September 8, yak anglers came out in strong numbers to fish the last regular-season Saturday in the Canoe KY ECKFS. The cooler temperatures of late have been ideal for fishing, and this day was no exception with a high of 78 degrees. The clouds and chances of rain did not deter the faithful, nor did it turn into much of a problem as the day progressed.

The numbers show that all things came together and made for a great day of fishing, with a grand total of 228.25 inches caught by the top five competitors of the day.

Place Angler Total Inches Points Earned
1st AJ McWhorter 48.75″ 5
2nd TJ Strong 46.75″ 4
3rd Tim Dunham 45.5″ 2.5
3rd Adam Miles 45.5″ 2.5
5th Allen Faith 41.75″ 1

As we count down the remaining weeks to the series grand finale, the overall point standings as of this writing are as follows:

Tim Dunham 16
Adam Miles 14.5
Allen Faith 14
John Walters 8
Tim Emberton 3
Bob Brown 2.5
