Top 5 Fly Fishing Destinations

Feb 8, 2008
The old saying is everyday of fishing is better than a day at work. Few of us would disagree with it. While that may be so, some days of fly fishing are better than others. Specifically, we are talking about fly fishing spots every angler talks about.

As with any top 5 list, it is important to note this is a very subjective point of view. Everyone has their particular opinion, and should be respected. My opinion is paramount here because, of course, I'm the one writing the article after all!

1. The Big Horn River in Montana is one of the most productive spots you'll find. Rainbows in the 15 inch range and an absolute huge population most years. Late July through the first two weeks of August are the best times to go for this great spot.

2. The Bahamas offer a bevy of fishing. When it comes to fly fishing, the flats off of North Andros Island are the best. The fish in the spotlight here is the bonefish. Fishing is good year around, but each shore of the island has a season so ask around.

3. Canada certainly has to be at the top of any list of top fly fishing spots and the Dean River is a worth destination. Jaw dropping scenery and steelhead are on the menu. This is the spot where people in the fly fishing industry go, so it is a must fish spot.

4. Argentina. Now there is a destination you might not think of with fly fishing. Well, the Rio Traful is a river in Patagonia with landlocked Salmon! The fishing is so good that President Eisenhower fished there and Ted Turner owns a big ranch on the river.

5. The Green River in Utah is a controversial pick. It is an epic river with incredible fishing for trout. So, what could be the downside? The river gets busy with people. If you are looking to avoid the crowd, the Green River may be a bad choice these days.

These may not represent your top 5, but I guarantee a few days at any of these locations will have you reevaluating your top 5 list. Give any of them a try and you will not regret the decision to do so.
