I am interested in Kayaking the Duck River and doing some bass fishing along the way. What stretch of the river would you recommend and why?

If you are going on the weekend, I can tell you what stretches to avoid. You should avoid Mill Town Road to Howard Bridge Road. There are two different canoe/kayak rental services that guide that stretch. Second, avoid Blue Springs Road to Riverside Drive. That stretch is flat with no current as you approach the dam in Columbia. The flat water also increases boat traffic.

Those are two stretches to avoid. As far as where to go, use Google Earth to scout a stretch that offers what you are looking for and TWRA GIS to locate your access points.

One possible route is Chickasaw Trace Park to Highway 50, Williamsport Bridge. Also, at three foot on the Columbia gauge or lower, the Duck River gets pretty slow. When you factor in time to fish, it gets real slow. I almost prefer paddling upstream and then fishing my way back to my truck. That way you have fewer logistical problem in terms of putting in and taking out, and you always know how long it will take you to get back to your vehicle.
I am a financial planner for couples who are too busy or don't know where to start.
