Freedom Hawk kayaks are built specifically for anglers. The kayak is one of the best because the rear can be split to create a stable base for stand up casting. When in the open position, the outriggers allow the angler to stand and the lean bar creates a comfortable casting position. When closed, the kayak can be paddled comfortably and continues to track like any other kayak. The outriggers double as dry storage. The open front of the kayak can be used for additional storage. The kayak comes in three sizes with the ultra light model being ideal for trout fishing. This is a top choice because the kayak combines the advantages of a stealthy craft and a standing room boat for sight casting and easy travel.

Hobie Mirage Outback
The Hobie Mirage Outback is a top kayak for trout fishing. The 12-foot kayak is easy to transport on the roof of a car and is small and light for creeping over weary trout. The boat is not designed for standing but attaching outriggers can make a stable casting platform. The major advantage of this kayak is its pedal system. Anglers can control the boat with their feet and have the freedom to cast and control the fishing rod. The kayak also has dry storage in the front, wet storage in the rear, 4 built-in rod holders, 2 drink holders and a self draining design. The kayak also has excellent reviews from All Kayak Fishing.com.

Wilderness Systems Tarpon 120
The Wilderness Systems Tarpon 120 is built for anglers and is the right size for trout fishing. The boat is just over 12 feet long and has several compartments for dry and wet storage that do not clutter the angling space. It also has a self bailing design, anchor, gear pockets and built-in rod holders. The kayak comes in larger sizes but the 120 is ideal for chasing trout and it comes in a camouflage color pattern to conceal your presence. The kayak is one of the best because of the included fisherman features and the anchor system for stopping in your favorite hot spots.
