FWIW, Buck Creek is a great area for kayak bassin'. However, the recent heavy rains in the area have made the water almost opaque. You can still manage a few fish (maybe), but be prepared for water with virtually NO visibility. Also, Buck Creek is covered in tall grass along the banks that is now inundated. So if you want to fish bedding areas you will have to find the clean bottom out in front of the grass lines; about 3-4 feet deep. Not sure how long this will persist; I was there a couple days ago. My advice is to keep paddling until you find some clear(er) water. But I don't know how far you will have to go to find it. I never did. And I suggest no less than heavy braided line to fish anywhere in Buck Creek.
If I was going back today I would find a place on the main lake to fish. The water is much cleaner there. Good luck.
