The 2022 RealTree Fishing KBF TRAIL Series presented by Dee Zee renews the most popular and wide-ranging kayak fishing tournament trail in the United States. That renewal brings a host of new opportunities for KBF anglers to earn prizes, expand qualifying opportunities and enhance their experiences fishing America’s great bass fisheries. At its end in October, the 2022 KBF TRAIL Series Championship will be held on Kentucky Lake with some of the highest payouts in the sport, crowning both the Rogue Fishing KBF Rookie of the Year and the Farwide KBF Angler of the Year!


In 2022, the KBF TRAIL will visit a host of new lakes in several regions. KBF will make stops in 13 states with expanded itineraries on the West Coast (4 TRAIL) and in the Northeast (3). Additionally, KBF will hold the first ever national kayak fishing tournaments in the states of Utah and Colorado!

Familiar favorites will also return, with the following waters on the early schedule:

Later still, the KBF TRAIL visits Laurel River Lake (May 14-15), Snow Pond (May 21-22), Lake Champlain (June 11-12), Percy Priest (June 24-25), Lake Erie/Lake St. Clair (July 16-17) and more.

In total, there will be 15 KBF TRAIL Series weekends spanning 9 months of the year.* With multiple opportunities for anglers to qualify for championship events, accumulate points and win prizes in all regions, get ready for 2022’s expanded and enhanced RealTree Fishing KBF TRAIL Series presented by Dee Zee.
