One of the reasons why so many people come to New England in the summer is to take advantage of the large amount of fishing that can be done in the area. New England is renown around the world for the quality and the surplus of its seafood, so it’s no surprise that anglers from all parts of the globe come here to try their skill and spend a few days in the beautiful New English wilderness.
There are lots of options for those who would like to cast their net into one of New England’s bountiful waters. To start off, bass fishing is incredible popular in the area, and so is angling for cod and trout. If you come during the colder months, inthe northern New English states ice fishing is incredibly popular, particularly in Vermont. There is also a great amount of variety in the ways that you can fish in New England – if you like to fly fish there are plenty of opportunities to do so, and if you’d rather hit the water with a net or a line there are places where you can do either or both. In addition to traditional fishing, there are also a lot of shellfish available for perusal on the New England shoreline.
The best time to come for fishing is in the summer – this is when most places are open for the sport and the fish are at their most active. Obviously, if you’d rather ice fish you’d be best off coming in the winter, but other than that, the summer is the best time to come and see how active the fish can be.
With a choice between salt water, fresh water, still water, moving water, lakes, rivers, oceans, and creeks to fish in, you’ll find something to please your inner angler when it comes to casting a line in New England. Even better, you’ll be able to pick up tricks and techniques for cooking your catches, as well. Not only is fishing in New England fun and relaxing, but it’s also filling as well!
