Fishing Near Me | The Best Fishing Spots You Should Know in the United States
Boise River, Idaho
I love autumn fly fishing. Stepping into the cool mountain water, the leaves turned vivid colors, as if you were approaching heaven. The Boise River in Idaho is one of the best spots in the country because it is full of Rainbow Trout, Bull Trout, Whitefish, Sucker Fish.
Bristol Bay, Alaska
Bristol Bay, Alaska has many fishing retreats, including King Salmon Lodge and Mission Lodge, with everything a passionate fisherman (or woman) could desire. The lodges of Bristol Bay offer breathtaking scenery, exceptional opportunities for freshwater fishing and a comfortable environment in nature.

Devils Lake, North Dakota
Devil's Lake, North Dakota is where the 2016 Cabela's Masters Walleye Circuit was held and it's located in one of the most beautiful places in North Dakota. Most people consider the Midwest lakes to be fresh water, but the Devil's Lake is actually very salty and interesting because both salinity and depth vary widely depending on precipitation. Due to limited natural drainage, the lake collects 86% of the basin's water runoff. This means that shallow lakes can be increased up to a depth of 60 feet. Among the fish found here are Northern Pike, Walleye, White Bass, and Crappie. It's been declared the Perch Capital of the US.
Gulf Shores and Orange Beach, Alabama
The entire Gulf of Mexico is an incredible destination for fishing enthusiasts but we chose the bay for its location and for its combination of quality fish and protected state parkland to fish from. In addition to deep-sea fishing, anglers will find the ideal fishing charter for many piers and beach fishing. You will find different types of fish, such as whiting, redfish, flounder, coast and swamps, as well as snapper, triggerfish, amberjack, king mackerel, grouper, tuna, marlin, swordfish, and wahoo just off the coast.
Bighorn River, Montana
The Bighorn River is warm and crystal clear and is a great place to catch trout. Most people are lucky enough to use artificial flies to catch trout. You can fish on the Bighorn River all year round, but the best time to fish is between April 1st and November 31st. You can find several guided fishing tours run by knowledgeable and friendly guides that will help you maximize your fishing and are great for beginners to professional fishermen.
Charlotte Harbor, Florida
Charlotte Harbor is one of the top sporting fishing destinations and the second largest open-water estuary in Florida. Charlotte Harbor contains a unique blend of saltwater from the Gulf of Mexico and fresh water from the Peace Myakka and Caloosahatchee rivers, providing a superior breeding ground for a variety of fish including snooker, grouper, tarpon, redfish, Barracuda, and cobia. This place is perfect for all types of fishing, including deep sea fishing, fly fishing, back-bay fishing, kayak fishing, freshwater fishing, and saltwater fishing.
Thousand Islands, New York
Although the name alone is almost convincing, millions of fish swim around these islands ranging from the big mouth bass to northern pikes and Muskies. No matter what type of environment you are looking for, the diversity here is incredible as it ranges from Lake Ontario to the St. Laurence Seaway and even to smaller tributary rivers. This allows fishermen to switch up their tactics and techniques to keep things fresh!
