Home of the United States ten Trout Fishing Streams

I seriously by the branches to appoint the 10 trout rivers in the country. I will undoubtedly leave out some rivers that are worth mentioning. But when it comes to a list like this, you have to choose the time of the streams, and I apologize in advance if I do not that is downstream favorite. I'm sure these are not really the ten best flows of all, there are dozens of rivers in Alaska backcountry and private trout waters are probably better than any of these. But these are all the rivers that are easily accessible and providing awesome trout fishing. These flows are all well known and will be full of people from time to time. However, all the rivers are long and there's no room to expand. It is no coincidence that Montana is well represented in the list, but is full of long rivers, beautiful trout.

1. Gallatin River (Yellowstone National Park and Montana)

This will be a little surprised that I list this as # 1. It's one of those currents that everyone likes, but usually plays a secondary role to other famous rivers in the Yellowstone area. Most people spend most of your trip in reality with class trout streams like the Madison, Yellowstone, Firehole, or spring creeks of Paradise Valley. The Gallatin River is this small and friendly that courses through the beautiful mountain area and produces a small trout. The water of the mountain meadow in Yellowstone National Park, and for a few miles below has several hundred small rainbow and ruthless in the rapids is abundant. You will not find thousands of trout per mile that you find in the Madison, or 20 brown , but there is nothing more beautiful and the fish usually are not at all upset. Access is easy and wide. Downstream, it gains power and roar through white water cannon. It's not easy flow is meadow, but the number of trout and the size of the fish are getting better. Below the canyon, the river spills sage in a wide valley populated with elk. Especially below the mouth of the Gallatin East, big brown begin to appear in large numbers in the undercut banks. It is good fishing water floating, although wading birds can do well. Finally, the Gallitin finds its way to Three Forks, where it helps form the mighty Missouri. Missouri itself is an incredible trout stream, the stream is next on our list.

2. Missouri River (Montana)

The Missouri River begins as a River Highlands in Three Forks, Montana. The headwaters of the river below Holter Dam, the river flows slowly, both as a free-flowing river and reservoirs. This part of the river has excellent fishing for trout during the spring and fall. The fish here are almost all brown, rainbow although some are up to the lakes found in the River. During the summer, white fish is part of the action. Browns can still be captured, but most are slow, or even move to the deep waters of the lakes.

Below Holter Dam, Missouri becomes a downstream current. This is where most people are going to fish the Missouri. The cooling output Holter Dam, creating a habitat where trout can survive well throughout the year. Rainbows are much more common at an early stage, but the Browns are also present. Fishing remains excellent after the waterfall, but a decent fish all the way to Great Falls.

3. Madison River (Yellowstone National Park and Montana)

The river begins as a spring Madison rare in Yellowstone National Park. The reason is so strange is that it is fed by hot and cold springs make their way into its two tributaries, the Firehole and Gibbon. The best fish in the upper end of spring, summer and autumn. During the summer, the water often grows too hot for trout feeding, due to the hot springs. Rainbows and browns in the 10-14 range are primary residents, but in spring, the rainbow big move from Hebgen Lake. In the fall, big brown, Hebgen also do the same. Flies are dry standard cost for residents. The migratory rainbow and brown ribbons prefer striking and deep sea fishing wet flies.

Below Hebgen Dam, there is a period of a few kilometers before the Madison decreases down Quake Lake. There is a resident trout population in this stretch is enhanced by spawning runs of quake lake during the spring and fall. The summer fishery is better than the river above Hebgen, but the spring race of the rainbow, and the fall run browns are the main event. Then quake lake, Madison becomes a beautiful brook trout stalls. It starts a race to Ennis Lake known as the rifle of 100 miles. This is all the water quickly, but serious rapids are rare. Rainbows and browns are in the water slowly over the banks and stream behind the middle of many boulders. The landscape is stunning, with the lush valley of Madison in the foreground and the towering mountains of Yellowstone in the background. This is the most legendary 100 miles of trout water in the country and possibly the world. It can float or be put.

Below Ennis Lake, the river drops in Beartrap Canyon. The canyon is full of large rainbow and brown, but it's a long walk to reach the stream. Still, it's probably worth it, since this relatively untapped water provides almost as good as water fishing above Ennis. Below the canyon, the river drops in an arid valley, where the meanders of an undercut bank to another. This is an excellent brown trout water, but it gets very hot in the summer. Spring and fall are good times to target the large number of cafes here.

4. Yellowstone River (Yellowstone National Park and Montana)

Yes, this is the fourth stream of Montana in the list. The Yellowstone just can not leave out of any list of the best trout waters, offering 250 kilometers of some of the trout fishing and heartstopping most beautiful in the world. The fishing begins in the depths of the Roads region of Wyoming. There is no easy way to get to this water. Take a long walk and a dedication of a week or so to water as fish must be caught. This water is fierce, with both resident and migratory fish of the trout of Yellowstone Lake. This is as deep as you can get wildnerness in the 48, and you should be sure you can be totally self-sufficient. In the case of an accident, will take care of yourself. In addition, the Grizzlies, black bears, moose and other dangerous creatures are common. That can be a hindrance or an attraction. Decide for yourself.

The river is much more civilized under Yellowstone Lake. Although it flows through a country that has left in its natural state for Yellowstone National Park, is far from being savages. The water park is heavily exploited, especially in the popular area of ??Buffalo Ford. Trout fishing is not as glorious as it used to be, but still pretty good. The lower river in the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone, and then the Black Canyon. The stages are essentially unfishable. When you move to Montana once again becomes a great trout stream. It is a mountain stream, easy to read below the park, with many pools and rapids that keep both rainbows and ruthless. Next, enter a new canyon, this so-called Yankee Jim. The canyon is hard to walk on, but the water has a rainbow pocket, and not fish very often.

Below Yankee Jim Canyon, the Yellowstone is based on the character that will remain for another hundred miles or so. It flows through a beautiful valley (although you can see the beautiful Absaroka Mountains most of the time), and the river is a constant, but swift current. This is rainbow and brown trout waters in the main, are very common but also fierce. The water around Livingston is the most famous, but fishing is very good for many miles upstream and downstream of the popular city in western trout. The trout fishing is all the way down to Billings in eastern Montana. Below there is a huge prairie house on the river for pike, smallmouth, and catfish, trout, but few.

5. Green River (Wyoming and Utah)

The Verde River is a stream with many faces. In its upper reaches, in Wyoming, is a house of plains rivers discharge large brown trout. This is the west country, ranches, and throughout the summer, trout hug undermine banks in search of the bins. That's where you should be casting a Letort Hopper and maybe a Hare dropper ear for good measure. Access is not very big here, but there are places where visitors can get fishermen in the water production cost.

Green top finally ends in Flaming Gorge Reservoir. The reservoir is home to large rainbow, brown and lake trout, but the deep water are difficult to manage with conventional equipment, especially if you prefer fly fishing. The downstream (which is actually in Utah), however, has some of the best trout populations on Earth. Some estimates indicate that about 20,000 trout per mile in the first 7 miles below the dam. The downstream is best known for his murderers, but also fish and rainbows and browns. This river flows through a beautiful desert canyon. Water is the clear air, and fishing is very popular site. Below is a few less trout, but the browns and rainbows can grow much larger. If you do not have a boat, we recommend hiking in some of the least known. You will find the wild fishery in one of the most productive trout rivers in the country. Fly and shop front will be able to point you in the right direction. Just watch out for rattlesnakes! Formal access is where you can fish, including one just below the dam. You can fish these areas, but the wilderness experience is lost. Most people who are new to the green that floats in a driftboat with a guide. The safety guide takes you through white water and put over fish. But do not expect it to be cheap.

6. White River-Bull Shoals Tailwater (Ark.)

Arkansas White River is the only current south on our list, and is also the only one that is loose and mostly. It flows downstream from Bull Shoals Dam high in the Ozark Mountains. The cold smoke from the bottom of Bull Shoals Lake, in combination with cold flows North Fork River trout will survive for about 100 miles below the dam. It is a fluctuating downstream flows quickly, and can be very dangerous. It can be waded at low flows, but fishing from the bank and the boat are the only options when the dam is releasing a lot of water. Its fleet for the first time, a guide will be useful.

There are about 5,000 trout per mile in the river, and most are rainbow. Rainbows are stored by the millions by the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission. Rainbows swarm almost all parts of the river, and never seems to be difficult to catch. These trout average 13 inches, so they are fun to catch. However, the Browns are what draws many anglers to the White House. The Browns are mostly wild, although their number is supplemented by planting. A new 24 big brown ensures minimum, and there are several catch and release areas on the River White River A coffee is not considered large until it reaches five pounds. There is a trophy until it reaches 10 so that give you an. framework, on our last trip to the White House, a fish shop owner showed us a picture of an honest, weighed and measured it had captured brown that weighed only 29 pounds. It seemed all excited.

7. Manistee River (Michigan)

Michigan Manistee River is one of the best in the world. It starts deep in the peninsula of Michigan as a small stream, spring-fed brook trout. This is not the perfect spot for trophy trout, but the brookies are beautiful and jewel-like, always ready to provide a wonderful experience. A few brown make their way in this section, and can grow surprisingly large. While most people fly fishing, spin fishing is legal and productive.

Downstream from the bridge of the M-72 to the bridge of the CCC, the river is fly fishing only. There are a number of browns and brookies here, and the trophies are far more common than upstream. This is the famous trout water, and the gates, and fish are abundant. Restrictive regulations to ensure quality fishing. Fishing remains good for a few kilometers downstream of the section special regulation (mostly browns), before the river is Tippy Pond.

Then Tippy Pond, the river is a mixed fishery. While smallmouth bass and pike are the main species during the summer, migratory trout, salmon, and rainbow trout fishery is the cool climate. King salmon and brown trout is present in large numbers during the fall. As a matter of fact, a brown trout caught in the lower Manistee last fall is the current world record. Rainbow trout in the river in mid-fall to mid-spring, and are very abundant.

8. Connecticut River (New Hampshire and Vermont)

The Upper Connecticut River is a stream of the East with a western touch. Running through the beautiful country of northern New England Appalachians, the landscape can not be beat. The part of the headwaters of the river flows through the third Connecticut Lake, Connecticut second lake, the lake first Connecticut, and Lake Francis. This part of the river is full of eager brook trout, and spring and fall, Atlantic salmon upstream of all of these lakes, and provide excellent sport on the River. There is some water that is legal to fish with a spinning rod, but it is mostly fly fishing only.

Under the Lake Francis, the river is mostly open to spin fishermen, while fly fishing is more popular. Connecticut offers excellent fishing for rainbow and brown trout below for miles. You can walk, fish from the shore, or float on water. This area gives his best shot to catch large trout. Fishing is good along the New Hampshire  Vermont border to the bottom of Hanover, home of Dartmouth College. It should be noted that there are several slow, dammed the stream sections in this part of the river waters are warmer fishing, but where is a good current, you will find some trout.

9. Niagara River

Did you know that below Niagara Falls, this mighty river is an excellent trout and salmon stream This is a fully migratory fish with a good number of rainbow trout, brown trout and several species of salmon. As you can imagine, this is not an easy river to fish. There are probably some areas you can fish from shore, but you can say is to wade out of the question. There are many guides in the area to help out in this beautiful river, dangerous and recommend their services to ensure a safe trip. This is not a summer fishing for the most part. Any time during the spring and fall, is a kind of salmon river running through. In summer, turns his attention to the small mouth, which are abundant and large.

10. Beaverkill River

This is one of the 10 best trout rivers in the country It is true, it probably is. It's just that the tradition of this current is so rich that it seems a sin to leave out. The river begins as beavers famous Catskill mountain tops Flowage. It is full of eager brook trout there, and few people fish. This water is located on public land, so if you like hiking, you may be pleasantly surprised. The first place most people start their fishing is in the Beaverkill Campground. Browns and brookies both reside in the aquatic environment here pretty fast and it's always a nice place to fish. Also, not so hot in the summer and the bottom, so you can probably expect to get a pair, if you have to come in July or August.

The river is mostly private and therefore out of our radar screen all the way to Roscoe, New York (also known as Trout Town USA). At this point, the Willowomec (also a good trout stream) flows in the output pool. Many people come all the way up here just to fish in that group, is synonymous with American dry fly fishing. After this background, the river is still the most accessible and has many other areas, such as Cairn pool, horse Brook Run, Cook Falls Pool, pool Horton, and the acid plant that are legendary in the minds of fishermen . This is famous trout water, fish and so whenever the water temperature is below 70 degrees. Sometimes it will be in good shape, exploitable through the summer, and sometimes the water is so warm that is irresponsible and unproductive for fish.

Only about 300 trout per mile in the Beaverkill, and the size is quite large as that number is not terribly high. Nor is it part of a stream of trophies, but it is true that some coffees are caught from time to time. And therein lies the mystery of his fame. Its real value lies in the fact that it was one of the rivers where he was the pioneer American dry fly fishing. A trip here is more a history lesson from a trip to the world class trout water.
