The lure of the hunt, the thrill of the catch, and the wild comfort of nature attract around 7 million fly anglers to shorelines, riverbeds, and streams across the U.S. each year. Some of the greatest fly fishing in the world can be found between America’s coastlines, from city waterways and rural reservoirs to historic watering spots and glacier-fed rivers. There is truly a location for everyone, from the novice to the expert fly fisher.
Curated compiled a state-by-state list of notable fly fishing destinations, including Washington D.C. Among these locations are a fly fishing spot highlighted in a major ’90s film, a water body bustling with salmon that can weigh up to 90 pounds, a tailwater fishery surrounded by majestic desert canyons, and an angler's paradise just 45 minutes from the bright lights of the Big Easy. Each location on the forthcoming list has its own variety of fish species, scenery, optimal season for fly fishing, and rules and regulations—so be sure to check conditions and rules before setting out.
