6 Top Fishing Spots in the world that are a must try

6 Top Fishing Spots in the world that are a must try

The world's many water bodies, from serene lakes to raging rivers to the ocean's depths, offer anglers much more than just a chance to reel in a catch. These areas are typically stunning and perfect for those who like nature.

You may spend a few hours casting a line, or you can organize your whole holiday around pursuing a record-setting game fish. You may cast a fly from the banks of a river, put your line through a hole in the ice, take a charter boat out to the open sea, or even dive in with a spear. Those who like fishing will likely find spending the day on the water relaxing and fun, even if they don't catch anything.

Whether you're a complete novice or a seasoned veteran, you want to optimize your chances of landing a fish by fishing in the areas with the highest concentrations of fish. From the Atlantic to the Pacific, the Rocky Mountains to the Great Plains, and beyond, we've compiled a list of some of the world's top fishing destinations fishermen prefer.

1. USA – Colorado River

We're not naming a state for the Colorado River since it's so large and full of excellent fishing areas. It begins high in the Colorado Rocky Mountains and flows through Utah, Nevada, Arizona, California, and Mexico.

Fly fishing enthusiasts enjoy Glenwood Springs, Colorado, owing to an abundance of hungry trout - brook, brown, cutthroat, and rainbow trout, to be specific. Just remember to bring some essentials for fishing from Reliable Fishing and a few flies.

Further downstream, the Colorado River and its dams create enormous lakes such as Lake Mohave and Lake Mead. Striped bass may grow to reach over 40 pounds in this area, and there is also plenty of catfish and trout. If you don't have your equipment, hire a boat with a local expert to hunt the largest bass on Lake Mohave.

2. USA - Florida - Key West

The southern coast of the United States provides easy access to the fish-rich waters of the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean. You may go fishing in Key West, but that's not all it’s good for: the island is also a popular tourist destination.

You can cast your line off the Key West coast, but you'll have greater success on a short boat trip out in deeper water. The several types of snapper that inhabit the reefs off the coast are among the most sought-after fish in the area. Other exciting tropical species to pursue include triggerfish, porgies, amberjack, and wahoo.

The Blue Marlin Motel is only one of several excellent lodging options in the Key West area. You may reserve a space on a fishing boat for a large party, complete with captain, bait, and fishing guides. You can also hire a private charter to take you on a hunt for the elusive prize you've been after.

3. Australia – Great Barrier Reef

For scuba divers and snorkelers, the Great Barrier Reef is akin to a natural wonder of the globe. Fishing, especially for large species, is among the best in the world here.

There are plenty of places to wet a line along the reef's length of almost 1,400 miles. It's hard to miss Lizard Island. Even while you may catch a wide variety of fish here, including trevally, mackerel, queenfish, grouper, coral trout, and many more, the gigantic black marlin is the real draw between September and December.

The stunning resort on Lizard Island adds to the island's appeal, although the location and price may deter some visitors. Cairns, a city on the mainland, offers an option with its many hotels and exciting attractions. Charter a boat to explore the Great Barrier Reef or try to capture some of the native barramundi species at a fish farm.

4. Canada - Prince Edward Island

Canada is an angler's heaven due to its abundance of pristine nature and diverse animals. Prince Edward Island stands out because it is close to major fishing destinations like Nova Scotia and New Brunswick yet still manages to keep off the beaten path.

Rainbow and brook trout may be caught easily on flies in the interior rivers of this island. A stocked farm may be found to the east of Ben's Lake. Determine your level of expertise with fly fishing, there are a few excellent excursions that can take you to the greatest areas and provide you with all the equipment you'll need.

And the Atlantic Ocean around the island is full of fish. In these waters, you may fish for cod, herring, Atlantic salmon, and the coveted striped bass. The weather this far north might be brisk, so you might want to pack a sturdy jacket.

5. The Great Lakes and the St. Lawrence River

There are many fishing locations here; the area covers two nations and probably has hundreds. Many of the world's largest fish may be found in North America's freshwater lakes and rivers, including the Saint Lawrence River that connects the Great Lakes to the Atlantic Ocean.

Massive Lake Erie is a natural boundary between New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, and Ontario, Canada. Yellow perch, trout, flathead catfish, and salmon may be fished from a variety of locations along these coastlines and from boats. But the walleye in this enormous lake are what draw the crowds; they are fierce fighters and the focus of many fishing expeditions.

Cities like Toronto and Niagara Falls provide easy access to other popular destinations like Lake Ontario. If you don't mind fishing through the ice, you can catch monsters like northern pike and lake trout all year long.

6. USA - Columbia - Oregon River

When it flows into the Pacific Ocean, the Columbia River is a natural boundary between Oregon and Washington and one of the greatest coastal fishing grounds in the western United States. Although the river flows farther north, many local experts agree that the finest fishing lies east of Portland, below the Bonneville Dam.

Massive populations of chum salmon, Coho salmon, and king salmon flourish and put up a fierce battle in the coastal estuaries and well upstream. The Chinook salmon that swims in the fall is also a favorite catch. Catching a sturgeon of ten feet or more in length is one of the most exciting things you can do here, but you'll have to let it go before eating it.

In addition to these massive combatants, anglers may catch shad, smallmouth bass, and steelhead in the river and its estuaries. Portland offers many alternatives, including the magnificent Hyatt House Portland Downtown, while many smaller communities along the river have rentals or hotels.
