• Welcome to the Boating & Fishing Community

    One of the best ways to learn more about fishing is from others! Here in the Take Me Fishing Boating & Fishing Community you can do just that. Read weekly blogs written by the pros, share the best fishing spots with fellow anglers on the Places to Boat and Fish Map, discuss how to fish with others in the forum, or find an event to attend with angling families.

    All anglers are invited to view posts, photos and hotspots, but to participate, you must be a member. Boating & Fishing Community members also receive a personalized e-newsletter with fishing and boating tips.

      Drive to Albion, NY. Head north on Rt. 98. Take Rt. 279 into Waterport. The large body of water is Lake Alice. Great for fishing, canoeing and boating.
