Default Re: How to find fishing locations? streams & rivers

Excellent advice. State (and provincial?) fish and wildlife websites often have where to go information and/or public access maps. Fly shops are a great source of local info on where to fish, hatch charts, up to date stream conditions, effective patterns etc. And as mentioned, Google Earth is another great resource.

scthomas- New York state has a ton of info you can start here: Places to Fish - NYS Dept. of Environmental Conservation

You might also want to see if there are any Trout Unlimited Chapters or Federation of Fly Fishers near you. Joining a local group is a great way to get up to speed, meet new fishing buddies and learn local waters on formal or informal group trips.

In the states you can search here:
Council/Chapter Contacts | Trout Unlimited - Conserving coldwater fisheries
and
Locate a Club

For Canada, it doesn't seem like there's any in Quebec: Trout Unlimited Canada
and
Locate a Club
