    im thinking about a day or two canoe trip with a little smallmouth fishing and camping.

    Anyone have any suggestions ?

    I’ve researched the Green River some and it looks good .

    BM don't know how far you would want to travel. But Elkhorn creek is a real good Smallmouth spot. Couple of camp grounds close. If you are interested PM me. And I can send you information on campgrounds and stuff.

    Idk about in Ky, but if you want to go out of stare go float the French Broad river up around Asheville NC. Me and my son did it a few years ago and caught 5-6 more by accident than design.

    I'm looking to do a trip to Arkansas, Mountain Home/Bull Shoals area. Trout fishing and smallmouth. Several good streams to float, plus Bull Shoals and Table Rock Lake.

    What kind of camping are you wanting--established campground, or primitive? If primitive, I'd recommend something in the DBNF--Rockcastle, Cumberland, Big South Fork, Kentucky, etc.

    Agree with this. Also why I put Rockastle above. One of my dads old buddies who doesn’t get around so well anymore used to do this all the time. Float and camp primitive. He loved the Rockastle. He’d always catch plenty to eat in the evenings!
