Fly Fishing in the Appalachians

When we think of fish as food, we probably first think of salmon, tuna, or some other sea fairing fish. We may forget about all the freshwater fish that North America has within its’ own borders; Rainbow Trout, Brown Trout, Brook Trout, Lake Trout, Crappie, Catfish, Bass (Striped, Largemouth & Smallmouth), Bluegill, Perch, Walleye, etc…..these are all tasty fish. I prefer trout myself. I like a stronger tasting fish.

There has been a growing awareness of water contamination on some waters (small percentage  in comparison to the vast lakes, streams and rivers we have), wether it be from minerals or chemicals and these waters are usually posted with signs telling anglers about the contaminates that may be in the water. I do recommend catch and release or following the instructions on the sign if the fish are still edible when it comes to a contaminated body of water.

We usually stay away from any known contaminated waters because we love to eat fish, America’s inland fish. As far as I can tell and from the waters that I usually fish and the fish that we eat from those waters, the meat tastes as pure as ever just like it probably always has.[wwcAmzAffProducts asin=”B000X5Z8J0″][wwcAmzAffProducts asin=”B00CLVL5IM”][/wwcAmzAffProducts][wwcAmzAffProducts asin=”B00POORV3Q”][/wwcAmzAffProducts]
