Here are 5 of my favorite places to fish in the US.
If you are a regular reader of this blog, firstly, thank you, and secondly then you know my first trip to Alaska is this June. for those new to this blog, welcome.
Alaska is the first of several and exciting fishing expeditions I will embark on in my 60s with a trip to the Amazon next year and Iceland following.
My fishing and exploration itinerary in Alaska will take me to the following:
- Cooper Landing
- Denali National Park
- Gates of the Arctic National Park
As wifi allows I will blog and update during this trip,
Living in Florida I am spoiled by the riches of amazing and beautiful places to fish, from the Keys to the Everglade, from the flats of Biscyane National Park to offshore reefs and beyond as well as urban canals and lakes.
My favorite places to fish in the Sunshine State are right here in my “backyard”
Biscyane National Park – either stalking the flats for bonefish or the mangroves for snook or the bay for larger prey from sharks to barracudas, BNP is just the best.
Everglades National Park – offers both amazing freshwater and saltwater fishing and the opportunity to be in a complete wilderness experience an hour or so from a major city.
Maine is a fisherman’s paradise and I had the pleasure of a three-day fishing trip in Northern Maine on the Kennebec river a few years ago.
Quiet. Remote. Rugged. Fishing was awesome for both native brook trout and landlocked salmon.
Big Sky Country never disappoints, even though I fished there once on the upper Missouri River in northwestern Montana. Fished through cold rain, sleet and snow and had an amazing time catching rainbows by day and drinking whisky at night.
I have fished several rivers throughout Wyoming, but my favorite was a father-son trip I took with my son in 2011 on the Snake River out of Jackson Hole. it was a week of fly fishing for trout, horseback riding and hiking in the Grand Tetons.
