The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources will conduct public meetings across the state June 5 and June 6 to solicit feedback from the paddle sports community.

“We want to hear from the paddling community – and we will use this input to shape our paddling program going forward,” said Gregory Johnson, commissioner of the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources.

The meetings will address access, boater safety and other aspects of paddling.

“We are seeking to engage paddlers and learn more about the paddling community,” said Paul Wilkes, fisheries program coordinator for Kentucky Fish and Wildlife. “Kentucky’s paddlers are as diverse as the waters they traverse. They are whitewater kayakers, stand up paddleboard enthusiasts, canoeists, flatwater kayakers and anglers who fish from a kayak.”

All meetings will run from 6-8 p.m. local time.
