Fish Where You Live – More Fishing by Fishing Local

Everywhere in America There’s Good Fly Fishing Nearby, but Finding It Can Take Some Work

by Sean Obrien

When you hear the term “fly fishing”, your mind likely pictures lush vegetation cut by a slow moving stream, uncorrupted by the sprawl of the big city.  A man in waders and a plaid shirt stands alone in the stream, rhythmically throwing flies as the water babbles around him.  The stream meanders through miles of forest, with overhangs and shrubs dotting the banks, and trout are everywhere.  This is the untouched, picturesque “perfect” setting for fly fishing, and places like this are generally accessible to those who live in the area – which, unfortunately, isn’t very many people.  For most of the fly fishing population, this is not reality.

Best Fishing Nearby By Debbie Kay

When I was a kid, my parents would pack themselves and four kids into the station wagon and set off across the country each summer and spring break in search of adventures.  Quite often, there would be a trailer towed behind the wagon carrying my dad’s BMW dual sport motorcycle, his favorite diversion when life and stress got overwhelming.  It was my parent’s compromise to head someplace like Disneyworld, the Phantom of the Opera in Toronto, or the Grand Old Opry together, with the knowledge that one or two days of our weeklong journey dad would be biking the most scenic roads nearby (usually with one of us riding behind him).  Continue reading America’s Top Tourist Destinations (and the Best Fishing Nearby)

Oregon Jetty Fishing – Jetty fishing is fun, and can offer fast action

By Terry Otto

Editors note: This article first appeared in Jan 2015

Jetty fishing is fun, and in Oregon it can offer fast action for saltwater fish without having to board a boat.  The jetties are home to dozens of species, and it can be surprising how many fish live in the holes and crags.  They are drawn to rock jetties for the same reason they are drawn to natural rock reefs.  Jetties are food factories, and shrimp, crab, and all kinds of edibles make a living in the rocks, and the fish come in to feed.  When the conditions are favorable, it can make for a day filled with tight lines.Oregon jetty fishing

Casting your line into the ocean spray, catching saltwater fish, and watching fishing boats return to port while sea birds wheel overhead are all part of the Oregon jetty fishing experience. And, it’s all set against the rugged beauty of the Oregon coast. Continue reading Oregon Jetty Fishing – Jetty fishing is fun, and can offer fast action
