While fishing on Summit Lake in the fall of 2020 three guys started throwing around the idea of the need for another kayak fishing tournament series in the Midwest. Living in Eastern Nebraska our idea was to include lakes in bordering states, provide options for online series as well as a live series, and to provide a platform that was competitive yet catered to new kayak anglers. Little did we know at the time that a pandemic was right around the corner and the growth of kayak fishing would explode as people were looking for safe ways to interact outdoors. Since that time, Central States Kayak Series has grown into one of the largest clubs in the region and we continue to grow through new membership and added events.
When we started CSKS we were determined to be more than just a fishing club. As such, we are active in giving back to our community through our Fishing for Families fundraiser tournament for Ronald McDonald House Charities and other civic activities.
We are 100% committed to on the water safety. A good pfd is a must for fishing any of our events and we strongly encourage and spread the word about on the water safety whenever we get the opportunity.
