Buckeye Kayak Fishing Trail (BKFT)

Dayton, Cincinnati, Columbus, Cleveland, OH
We are the Buckeye Kayak Fishing Trail!
We are happy to be the oldest and longest running trail in Ohio with 2021 marking our 8th year!

We pride ourselves as a trail that is for the anglers and is ran by the anglers.  Every year we assign a 9-15 person committee that establishes rules, regulations, resolves disputes, and everything in between to make the trail what it is.
These positions often times require endless hours of volunteer work with few perks, so if you know a committee member thank them for their help and commitment!

All the information you require is posted on our website:

Be sure to also join our Facebook group: 

If you have any questions the Facebook group is your best bet for an immediate answer, but you are also welcome to email buckeyekayakfishingtrail@gmail.com
