Freshwater fishing means fishing in waters that are generally considered to contain fresh water, with minimal or no salt content. It’s one of the more versatile types of fishing, with various species of fish, and many ways to fish for them.


About 40 percent of all fish are freshwater species. Common freshwater fish species are bass, trout, certain species of salmon, walleye, musky, crappie, catfish, and many others.


Freshwater fishing can be done in many ways – from shore or a boat, from a bridge or dock, in lakes and ponds, and rivers and streams. There are a variety of freshwater fishing techniques, in addition to gear, baits and lures, depending on the type of fish you’re after.


With all the different possibilities, there’s something for everyone. What are you waiting for?
