Raised on the waters in Southwest, Missouri, Josh Beebe started fishing by wading nearby rivers and creeks. During his adult life he found interest in kayak fishing because of the abundance of rivers, streams, and creeks. Kayak fishing offers an isolated feeling and an opportunity to fish where not most cannot reach and like any sport kayak fishing presents different challenges than on a conventional boat.
While new to the tournament kayak fishing scene, Josh has placed in the top 10 five out of six times in the Ozarks Anglers Tournament Trail during the most recent season. He also fishes the River Bassin Tournament Trail where he will be testing his skills against the Nation’s best river fisherman during River Bassin Nationals.
Josh has a strong desire to preserve local waterways and promote conservation for all animals and because of that his experience and dedication to the sport has grown strong over the span of five years. He is an ambassador for Ozarks Smallmouth Alliance. This allows Josh to share his desire for fishing, river awareness, and the hard fighting smallmouth bass. He has devoted his time and money to ensure the smallmouth bass stays in the local rivers, streams, and creeks.
Josh hopes to grow the sports of fishing and kayaking by attending and presenting on the topics. Currently, Josh resides in Nixa, Missouri with his son Cylas. He has raised Cylas the way he was raised by still visiting and wading through the Ozark Waterways. When they are not fishing Josh and Cylas enjoy hiking, discovering new rivers, and watching football.
