Top Fishing Spots in the Northeast

by Huk Gear September 11, 2015

This is part 2 in Huk’s trip around the country, looking at the best spots in each region. Check out the first edition: Top Fishing Spots in the Southeast

The northeast is a great region to be an angler. With the Atlantic Ocean to the east, Lake Erie to the west, and plenty of lakes and rivers in between, finding a good fishing hole is rarely a problem.

So what are the best spots to fish in New England and the northeast region of the United States? Take a look at this list to get started.

Thousand Islands, St. Lawrence River, New York

As the St. Lawrence River works its way northeast from Lake Ontario to the Atlantic Ocean, it holds an area known as Thousand Islands. This area actually has 1,864 islands as well as some of the best bass fishing in the world. It was named the #8 bass fishing area in the country by Bassmaster, and has been a popular spot for musky, trout, walleye, and northern pike for years.

Massachusetts Bay, Boston

If you visit Boston, there will be lots to see and do, but step away from the history and culture to take a charter boat into Massachusetts Bay; you won’t be disappointed. The area is home to some of the best tuna fishing in the country, with large bluefins being taken on a regular basis. The area is also a top spot for catching wild and energetic mako sharks, which are famous for their athletic leaps from the water.

Cobbosseecontee Lake, Maine

With a long name and 5,500 acres of fishing opportunities, Cobbosseecontee Lake is one of the top producers of big bass in the northeast. This Maine lake has plenty of islands, inlets, coves, and rocky shores for anglers to target, and you won’t have to travel far to start having your lure hammered by big bass. The area is also a top fishing spot for brown and brook trout, northern pike, and more.

Buffalo, New York

You might think only of chicken wings when someone brings up Buffalo, New York, but this area is one of the top fishing towns in the country. Sitting at the junction between Lake Erie and the Niagara River, Buffalo has exceptional bass fishing on both bodies of water. You can catch trophy musky, table-filling walleye, and some of the biggest smallmouth you’ve ever seen, all while enjoying the comforts and entertainment of Buffalo.

Lake Champlain, New York/Vermont

Lake Champlain, on the border of New York and Vermont, is one of the most consistently productive bass lakes in the country. Thanks to 490-square miles of water surface and a lively population of largemouth and smallmouth bass, the natural lake is a regular host for professional and amateur fishing tournaments. The water is home to not only bass, but big musky, lake trout, and northern pike.
