The Fish Whisperer

Land Excitement with Orvis

Although this bullie seems to be the fish whisperer, most of us need to work to catch our fish.

In fact, here is a list of many great fly fishing states in the US. If I missed any, please let me know in comments.

Alaska
Although the season is short, it is a true experience in the great American wilderness. Enjoy salmon, steelhead, rainbows, grayling, and northern pike. Just be careful of grizzly bears.

Colorado
With over 9,000 miles of trout water, you have many options for that perfect cast. May we suggest the Fryingpan, the Gunnison, the San Juan, the Plattes (North and South) and the Colorado rivers as some of the most famous options.

Florida
Enjoy top saltwater flyfishing. You can find bonefish, tarpon, redfish, snook, and largemouth bass. Go inland to find some great jewels.

Idaho
Take on Big Wood, South Fork, or the Big Lost rivers to play in the big leagues. Silver Creek and Henry’s Fork are another great two options for top trout fishing.

Michigan
Salmon and steelhead are bountiful in this 4 season state. Enjoy the wilderness of the upper peninsula, and stop off for some craft brews when the day is done.

Montana
Often hailed as the best trout-fishing state in the country, there are many options to choose from. A trip (or several) should include stops at the Yellowstone, Big Horn, Madison, Beaverhead, and the Missouri.

New York
Enjoy some of the best striped bass, bluefish, and false albacore fishing in the US. With the Montauk, Long Island Sound, and Long Island’s southern beaches, you are sure to find a great spot. Journey to the Catskills to find the Beaverkill, Willowemoc, Neversink, and Delaware branches, which offer excellent trout.

Oregon/Washington
Both states have runs of wild salmon and steel head. Both have sea-run cutthroats. Although you may favor Oregon, home of the Clackamas, Deschutes, Klamath and Umpqua rivers.
