Trim the boat so it is pretty level when you are in one of the seats. Consider a rod holder than clamps to the gunwales, or just put your rod under your knee. Add a beverage holder. Carry a mesh bag and a line for an anchor. Use it by adding some rocks in the bag. A net is often overlooked in canoe fishing. For larger fish like pike it is essential. Troll everywhere you go.
It is handy to fish with a partner, especially in moving water so that someone can help you control the boat with a fish on. That is especially true in moving water. Good luck.
