    Me and my wife are kayak fishing part of Elkhorn creek this week. Each taking a Phluegar President on light/med gx2 rods.
    Im thinking about trying some finess worms (3" and 4") ned rigged, taking a few shad colored swim baits maybe a rapala or two..
    Never been on Elkhorn so any tips on rigs, presentations etc would be appreciated. Thanks

    Ned rig will catch fish but my experience says they hang pretty easy between rocks. My go to is Texas rig tiny brush hog or nikko hellgramite

    Live crawdads, and rooster tails worked well for me. I suppose artificial crawdads would work well but we always seined a bucket full.
