The joy of fishing in the US is that there are hundreds of excellent places to visit and spend the day angling. That gives you so much choice, no matter how you like to fish. That includes fishing by boat with fully stocked fuel bladders marine, or enjoying fishing from the shore. There’s especially lots of opportunity on offer if you want to go fly fishing. Here are 7 of the best places in the US if that’s the way you want to enjoy a day at the water. 

1. Guadalupe River, Texas

While you may not think of Texas as the place to catch trout, this is an excellent river if you’re hunting these fish down. In fact, it’s the country’s most Southern trout fishing stream. There are trout breeding naturally here throughout the year, but you’ll see that Trout Unlimited and the State of Texas also stock the river with trout every fall too, so there’s always plenty ready to be caught. 

Rainbow trout are the main species you’ll find here, but you’ll also find a good amount of brown trout too. The largest trout ever caught in the river was 24”, and large trout are common here too. As a fly fisher, you’ll want to make sure you come check it out. With a marine fuel bladder, you could also sail the river too. 

2. Little Red River, Arkansas

As a fly fisher you’ll likely already know of Little Red River, thanks to Howard ‘Rip’ Collins. He made records by pulling a 40 plus pound brown trout from the waters, which is the largest fish on state records but is also a world record contender. 

If you want to try your luck here, make sure you pack up your gear and marine fuel bladders if you’re hoping to go boating too. As the river pulls lower levels of the water column from the lake, it helps maintain water temperatures that are perfect for fly fishing. 

3. Epic Floats, Colorado

Want to get away from it all? The Epic Floats of the Roaring Fork River and the Colorado River are a must do. If you have a raft or drift boat, you’ll want to make sure you bring fuel bladders marine so you can fully explore them all. 

They offer lots of opportunity to fish for both rainbow trout and brown trout, so you can have a productive fishing session here. Plus, with some stunning scenery it’s an amazing way to get away from the crowds.

As well as the trout, you have the opportunity to go after landlocked salmon too. Most of the time, they spend their time in the open lakes, but during breeding season they’ll leave the open water and start making their way up smaller tributaries. That’s your chance to catch them in some of the smallest bodies of water. The scenery here is also gorgeous, and with a boat and a marine fuel bladder you can drink it all in. 

5. The Florida Keys

The Florida Keys are already an amazing holiday destination, and you can spend hours sailing around with your fuel bladders marine, exploring what the waters have to offer you. If you’re a fly fisher though, there’s even more ready and waiting for you here. 

If you’re interested in saltwater fly fishing, you can go after tarpon, redfish, snook, and permit all with a fly rod. That makes it a great place to get some sun and get the most out of a fishing trip. Just make sure you pack the sunblock as well as your marine fuel bladder. 

6. Eastern Tail Waters, Tennessee
