3 Best Fishing Spots in the US

1.Lake Powell

Lake_Powell_-_Arizona(“Lake Powell”)

Not only is this lake the best fishing spot that I know of, it is the favorite of many other fishers out there. There have been studies that in a few decades the possibility of Lake Powell no longer being here is high(“Study: Lake Powell and Mead Could Disappear in a Few Decades Due to Climate Change”). Lake Powell also has plenty of room for fishers, storing 24,322,000 acre feet (3.0001×1010 m3) of water when full(“Lake Powell”).

Fish to find: Smallmouth Bass, Largemouth Bass, Crappie, Juvenile Stripers, Mature Stripers, Senile fish, and Walleye (Gustaveson).

2.Fox River (Illinois)

The Fox River is 115 miles long and is a great place to fish. “The Fox River has a very diverse sport fishery, including smallmouth and largemouth bass, channel catfish, bluegill, walleye, flathead catfish, and Muskie”(“Fox River”). The river itself originates in Wisconsin.

Fish to find: Smallmouth and Largemouth Bass, Channel Catfish, Bluegill, Walleye, Flathead Catfish, and Muskie.

3.Wheeler Lake (Alabama)
