Reeling in a fantastic RV fishing vacation in New York is easy, considering the lakes, streams and ocean shoreline that offer a different fishing experience every trip. Add in the wide variety of RV camping venues, and you’ve got everything you need for one whopper of an RV vacation.
RV campers report the fishing’s fine on these New York waterways:
New York Great Lakes Fishing
New York boasts shoreline on two Great Lakes, Erie and Ontario. Lake Ontario is the place to go for great Coho and Chinook salmon fishing, while Lake Erie is well-known for its walleye and smallmouth bass. Park your RV at Lake Bluff Campground near Lake Ontario’s Great Sodus Bay. For your Lake Erie RV fishing vacation, why not try Lakeside Campground in Ripley, NY?
New York Adirondack Lakes Fishing
The beauty of New York’s Adirondacks is legendary, and so is the fishing! With hundreds of lakes and ponds to tempt fishing fans, the Adirondack Lakes Region presents endless RV fishing vacation possibilities. Here’s just a sample of what’s waiting for you there:
- Saranac Lake Chain: The Upper, Lower and Middle Saranac Lakes are just three of dozens of bodies of water in the Adirondack Lakes Region. Connected by a series of locks, these lakes are prime brown bullhead and largemouth bass territory. Plan to spend time exploring six-million-acre Adirondack Park while in the area.
- Adirondack Stream and River Fly Fishing: Another popular way to spend time in the Adirondacks is fly fishing the area’s streams and rivers for wild brook trout, brown trout and even salmon. The Ausable River near Lake Placid has a reputation for rewarding fly fishing experts.
New York Hudson River Fishing
The Hudson’s thirty boat ramps make access to this mighty river simple. Don’t have a boat? The fishing piers built by the State of New York give landlocked fishermen a chance to enjoy the River, too. This river’s unique blend of coastal salt water and fresh Adirondacks river water makes for some stellar fishing. Try your hand at catching some of the Hudson’s legendary stripers, and then relax for the night at River Road Campground in Corinth, NY.
New York Atlantic Coast Fishing
Fishing New York’s Atlantic Coast off Long Island is another “can’t-miss” experience for RV fishermen. We’ve heard great things about fishing the surf off Montauk for blue fish, and you’re sure to find places to catch tuna, fluke and striped bass in Long Island’s waters.
New York Lake George/Lake Champlain Fishing
Sport fishermen flock to northern New York’s Lake George/Lake Champlain area. So should you, if you’re hoping to catch lake sturgeon, channel cats or Atlantic salmon, as well as a trophy bass or two. Known as an ice fishing wonderland, Lake Champlain is accommodating year-round, with scenic views and abundant RV camping. Lake George, just south of Champlain, is also home to numerous bass fishing tournaments. Plan to stay at Brookwood RV Resort for easy access to both lakes.
