Three Great Fishing Destinations in the West

A great way to spend time with family and friends is on an epic fishing trip. The peace and serenity of fishing offers a chance to catch up, reconnect, and enjoy nature without the distractions of everyday life. To get you started and take care of transportation logistics, lease a bus or shuttle van. Whether you have 6 or 25 people in your group, the advantages of leasing a bus or shuttle van include saving wear and tear on your own car, avoiding maintenance issues, and creating camaraderie on the way to and from your destination.

Here are three great fishing locations in the West to consider when you want to get away from it all, commune with friends and family, and catch impressive fish.

Lake Tahoe, California

Located on the California/Nevada border, the area in and around Lake Tahoe has many clear water areas to fish for brown trout, cutthroats, rainbow and brook trout, and salmon. For example, the Truckee River, the sole outlet of Lake Tahoe, weaves and winds for 121 miles around great lakes, creeks, and reservoirs which allow for some great fishing diversity. Martis Creek Lake, Prosser Creek, Boca and Stampede reservoirs, and Taylor Creek are just a few of the many places where you’ll find what you are looking for.

Missoula, Montana

Named by Forbes as one of the top ten trout fishing towns in America, Missoula is famous for its three great rivers – the Blackfoot, Bitterroot, and Clark Fork – and Rock Creek. The area is also known for its lake fishing. Flathead, Georgetown, and Seeley lakes offer great fishing, as do the state parks that include, Frenchtown Pond, Salmon Lake, and Placid Lake. For amazing cutthroats, rainbows, and browns, Missoula has a lot to offer.

Glenwood Springs, Colorado

There are an unlimited number of great places to fish in Colorado, but Glenwood Springs brings together eight sources within casting distance of this beautiful location. Cast into Roaring Fork, the Colorado River, Crystal River, Fryingpan River, Snowmass Creek, Maroon Creek, Castle Creek, and Lincoln Creek. The area’s fishing spots and tributaries are home to brookies, browns, cutthroats, and rainbow trout.

Though just a few of hundreds of great locations in the Western United States, these three locations will provide the best of fishing and nature. Gather your friends and family, pick a location, and lease or rent a bus or shuttle van to take you there.
