Ontario Kayak Provincial Championship

September 27 - September 28

The OBN Ontario Kayak Provincial Championship will be held Seymour Lake and the Trent River. This is a section of the Trent River downstream of Rice Lake that widens and forms Seymour Lake. This is a prime area for both Smallmouth and Largemouth Bass. This is the time of year that the feed bags are on so will largemouth be the fish of the day or will the smallmouth be found and targeted. Only time will tell with this one.
This is a qualifying event for the 2021 B.A.S.S. Nation Kayak National Championship.
You must be a member of B.A.S.S. and also of an affiliated Ontario Bass Nation club to register for the event. Please see the Ontario Kayak Bassmasters FB page for membership details.
