Fishing Destinations

The chapter maintains files on popular fishing destinations in the Northeast.  The files consist of stream maps, places for fishermen/women to stay, restaurants in the area, and outfitters/fly shops/guide services available.

If you would like to see the file on a particular stream, see our Fishing Activities Coordinator.  Further, we welcome any good maps, brochures, or magazine articles you might have to add to our files.

Fishing Destinations we currently have on file are shown below.  If a link is available, click the destination name to see a summary page about that destination.  Full files are available at all chapter meetings.
