Shore Fishing Along a Midwest Hiking Trail

Shore Fishing is an adventure the entire family can enjoy. Many scenic trails wind along the edge of a river or along bodies of water. Adults as well as children often enjoy hiking the trails that lead to the water's edge. Hiking trails are abundant with wildlife, wildflowers and a variety of plush greenery. A trip that starts out as a shore fishing expedition has the potential to quickly become an educational experience children will remember for years to come. Take along a camera so that pictures can become a part of the story.

After reviewing the trail systems and public water accesses in your area, you may find you are minutes from a great pan fishing location. State maps and Department of Natural Resource websites provide a large amount of information about public water. Information they provide assists the fishing and hiking enthusiast alike. Public water shores provide the opportunity for a vast variety of potential species to be caught. In the Midwest, it is not uncommon to catch sunnies, perch, northern and even walleye while shore fishing. Taking a moment to review signage that is often located in parking areas surrounding lakes or rivers can be helpful to a shore fishing individual.
