Hook and Paddle provides a unique opportunity to enter the world of kayak fishing, by providing a fun and relaxed environment at each tournament location. We have three different series for you to engage, the first is a multi-species, catch-photograph-release series with 9 locations. The second is our catch-photo-release, Bass specific series, where we are excited to provide 7 locations this year.

Both series will have individual, as well as overall winners and prizes. The series winners will be determined by the angler that registers the highest combined length from various species, or bass as they can catch throughout the various tournaments this summer.

The third is an elimination bracket style series Where series paddlers are paired up at the first event and eliminate rivals similar to a playoff bracket.

We hope you will join us for a day on a beautiful New Brunswick river, with some spectacular fishing locations!


We may not answer all questions but this will hopefully answer a few. Many questions can be answered by our Rules and Regulations.

Each derby has a opportunity for a top prize, as well there are prizes for winning the whole series.

We understand sometimes there are things that are beyond your control. Refunds are possible but we need 48hr notice ahead of a derby that you can’t make it.

No. We’ve had canoes, and SUP enter as well. A boat must not be propelled by petro based engines, electric and pedal drive are allowed.

One each tournament day you will be given a unqiue ID number to show in all your pictures which have to be sent via text to our tournament coordinators.
