If by 'ok' you mean legal, then yes.  If you mean is it physically possible, then yes, by all means!  You can fly fish kneeling in a canoe, so sitting up in a pedal boat is a cakewalk.  You're certainly higher off the water than when wading to your waist, so you can get a good backcast, even if it tends to drop a bit behind you.  I expect they are plenty stable so you could even stand in it.

And yes, I'd limit it to one person unless your passenger is willing to wear a rugged PFD, a hard hat, sunglasses and a fiberglass neck guard.dry.png

(I'd also stay off moving water - rivers and such)

Troutchaser:  Hah!  Good point!  Imagine how self-righteous a fellow could feel if he got a bit of a workout every time he went fishing!smile.png  

I recall a couple of decades ago there was a woman on digdeguash lake who went out fishing in her paddleboat just about every morning at dawn.  She said the fishing was good, and the winds were generally calm.

I think I am going to buy a paddle boat as they seem good for one person and a bit more stable then a canoe.
