6 Top Spots To Celebrate National Fishing Day

National Go Fishing Day is observed annually on June 18th. Make the most of this day by taking some time to head outdoors and enjoy this great sport. Head to your favorite local stream, pond or lake to cast or - if you’re up for some travel - look into trying out one of the best places to go fishing in the United States below.

1. Baltimore, Maryland

Providing the opportunity to explore the Middle and Upper Chesapeake Bay, Baltimore definitely offers access to some of the best fishing in the U.S. You’ll be able to find a wide variety of fish in the Bay, including bluefish, flounder, sea bass and stripers. And there’s delicious blue crab too.

2. Boston, Massachusetts

Boston is one of the country’s oldest (and largest) port cities. Love striped bass? Fish the Boston Harbor. How about flounder? Head to Quincy Bay. If you’re daring (and we know our community members are!), you can venture offshore to attempt catching giant bluefin tuna - and even sharks!

3. Mammoth Lakes, California

Mammoth Lakes is surrounded by the gorgeous Sierra Nevada Mountains, boasting a breathtakingly scenic location in Central California. It also offers some of the best trout fishing on the West Coast.

4. Meeker, Colorado

Colorado is not only a beautiful state but offers some of the best fishing opportunities in the nation. Take a trip to Meeker for a good mix of both public (free) and private (for a fee) waters to fish in.

5. Outer Banks, North Carolina

The Outer Banks of North Carolina offers a wide variety of fishing opportunities. Whether you’re looking to chart a boat, go fly fishing, try pier fishing or explore another type of fishing, there are certainly no lack of options here. Some types of fish you may find on your adventures are flounder, sea bass and trout, but there are many more.

6. Venice, Louisiana

Venice is located on the mouth of the Mississippi and is one of the few locations where you’re guaranteed to catch fish. There’s plenty of fresh water varieties, like bass, redfish and speckled trout, to keep you occupied for quite some time.  

Prefer the ocean? You can also chart a boat and spend a day on the ocean trying to catch larger saltwater fish such as marlin and tuna.

Can’t make it to one of these locations for National Fish Day? Keep them on your list for future fishing adventures!

Let us know in the comments if you’ve ever fished at any of the locations mentioned here. We’d also love to hear about your favorite spots to fish throughout the United States!
