Fishing along route


New Member
Ekk! Okay - I admit it - I'm not crazy about fishing, but my dh is nuts about fishing. We plan to take a trip from the west coast (Washington State) to Maryland (to just outside the beltway), with several stops along the route. I was wondering if anyone can provide some good possible fishing areas? (We'll be traveling during the month of July - and part of August.) We plan to stop in Yellowstone NP, routes in WY, maybe CO and KS. From there - we're just going with the flow. My dh loves to fish lakes more than rivers, but she enjoys catching and releasing the fishes. Maybe she'll bring a few home - which I will have to cook. :dead:
Any suggestions?

RE: Fishing along route

I guess you plan on buying out of state licenses in each state as well. That can get a little pricey at times. Anyway there is good fishing in Yellowstone, recommend renting a boat if going out on the lake to fish. Most of yellowstone is good fishing during their seasons but very restrictive on what you can and cannot keep. On the lake you can keep all the lake trout you can catch and they can be some really nice fish if you get out there with a boat. Kansas has some fair fishing about the middle of the state and not far north of Highway 70. Head north in hwy 77 to Milford Lake or 177 to tuttle creek lake. Both are not far from each other.

Sounds good -- I will look into it. As for the boat -- try kayaks! We're bring our kayaks with us and my dh loves to fish from her kayak. :shy: :laugh:

You may also look for a campground with a "private fishing" lake. Many do not require a state license but may charge a fee to fish their "stocked" lake.

I just want to go fishing in the coming days. I am from Frankfurt. My name is Andreas and I just can't live without fishing. This is my real mania, and I'll explain below why:
- almost everything, from the choice of rods, reels, end devices, baits, flies; learn new techniques; Plan your fishing trips and departures to remote locations where you can fish from reef to pelagic fish; on the site, whether it be natural wild brown trout in a stream of chalk, with fish bones in the plain and a sailboat in the sea.
- Be outdoors in a beautiful landscape
- sit on a quarry in his element, fight him on a fishing rod and a fishing rod, land successfully and then respectfully release him.
- Share your experience with others.
I would also like to know what equipment you use for fishing. I use them from because I have been working with them for a long time and they have not disappointed me yet. I would also like to know why you love fishing and where you love fishing.
Bass fish only catch and release. Small Jon boat 12 ft, trooling motor only and love floating small creeks, ponds and large stream backwaters. Casting reel with medium heavy 6 foot 6in rod. Favorite lure top water, lizzard, space monkey and spinner

Good day.
From personal experience, in order not to forget things, I started a notebook where it was written what to take. Before leaving, I am guided by which positions I take, which ones I exclude. When leaving home, I also check everything.
My set for fishing with an overnight stay (taking into account that I am traveling by car): boat, tent, sleeping bag, rug, ax, knife, hand saw, shovel, kettle, kettle, mug, spoon, lantern, rubber boots, chair, cage, table, bowl, tick / mosquito repellent, soap, watch, towel / hand wipes, personal hygiene products, respectively matches. We select clothes according to the weather, but we take waterproof suits to protect from the rain. In the fall, we take clothes like for winter fishing.
Tackle, bait, lure - everyone determines for himself. And the most important thing that I take with me is which even surprised me with its durability
