Article Submissions


Are you a smallwater angler? Have any tips/info/wisdom to share on places to fish in your area?  We are always looking for short, 300-1000 word articles about places to fish all over North America (and possibly the rest of the world in the future).  Pieces should include a good description of how to get there, notes about unusual or odd conditions of the waterbody, and a brief narrative of your most recent fishing experience there.  Also, please note if there is bank fishing, and if possible, whether the area is accessible for wheelchairs or people who have difficulty getting around.  Articles should focus on fishing from small craft like canoes and kayaks, on foot, wading, or other methods that generally don’t require motorboat.

To submit an article, paste the text into an email and send it to administrator [at] (replace [at] with @).  Please include your name and the location you’re writing about. (See notes/disclaimers below for important information)

Link Submissions

If you own or know of a site that is focused on small water angling, feel free to send the link to  administrator [at] (replace [at] with @).  We’re particularly interested in sites that are rich in original content about regional fishing. (See notes/disclaimers below for important information)

You can always post comments and add your thoughts or experiences in the comment area at the bottom of the various pages on the site.



I definitely appreciate contributions others submit to Smallwater Fishing–thank you!
