2021 NAKA Tournament Trail - The River Stop
Beat the August heat and hit some small moving water for big-time fishing.
Fish any small moving water (public access) in North Alabama then meet the club at the weight in for some great grub.
Example of "Small water" would be an Angler while floating down the middle of the waterway, one could cast and hit either bank on left or right of angler....."Moving water" would be water flowing, moving, current, not a backwater or mouth of a creek meeting a large body of water or bay or big reservoir like the Tennessee River. We offer this stop as an alternative to big water/lake fishing. It is intended to be creeks/small flowing rivers/tributaries. Water access must be public (like with all Naka Tournaments).
IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS OR ARENT SURE YOUR CHOICE OF WATER FITS THE TOURNEY DESCRIPTION, CONTACT AN ADMIN OR CHRIS MARKS (TD) FOR AN APPROVAL.
