i havent fished it yet but i have kayakked it. I do know that it is fishable. I live in vienna which is also prettty close. My dad went on a trip once where it was like a raft and they fished it. Same thing except a kayak. Just dont try fishing in the rapids probably and bring a less expensive rod because you might tip. I am planning on trying it in march or april though so i will give you some feedback then.
