Helpful Information about Fishing Trails

If you're a believer in "Good things come to those who bait," fishing is the sport for you. Rail-trails make excellent fishing trails since many railroads were built to follow the existing path of rivers, canals, and towpaths, which served as important transportation routes for people and goods.

You can find detailed trail information and fishing trail maps on TrailLink.com, but before you go, just be sure to check with your state's Department of Natural Resources to find out if a fishing license is required. Your local DNR will also be a good resource for learning what fish species are available in your region, what the best hotspots are, and data on water quality and clarity.

The Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation is another good resource, offering a searchable database of what fish are available in lakes and waterways across the country, fishing guidelines, a fishopedia, and many other resources.

Share proof of your catch by posting your pics to TrailLink.com and submitting a review of your fishing trail. Other fishing enthusiasts are sure to appreciate your first-hand knowledge of the trail and its best fishing spots.
