• 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.

    • Woodhouse Conservation Area

      Part of Crow Creek stemming from North Crow Reservoir has been dammed, and created a nice little lake at the base of a large mountain. Since being managed by the Game and Fish Department, the area is now stocked with Brook and Rainbow Trout. The beaver ponds in the area also yield trout for those avid fly fishermen. It's a great spot that is rarely visited as not many locals know about it.

    • One of the best parts about fishing, whether from shore or from a boat is sharing photos of your big catch! See photos from other anglers then add your own photo or video.
    • A great place to try fishing, or meet other anglers, consider attending an event like a fishing derby, boat show or how-to clinic. Search our nationwide database to find a boating or fishing event near you.
