Many cities across America offer great fishing opportunities. Look for these hidden jewels in creeks and rivers that run through the town, city parks lakes, small water supply reservoirs and golf course water hazards.
These places can hold lots of fish and some of quality size. Some of these waters are stocked with largemouth bass, bluegill, crappie, and catfish by state and local agencies wanting to provide convenient angling opportunities.
Some manufacturing plants even stock fish in their water retention ponds and might just allow fishing if you only ask.
To find out about these secret little fishing holes, check with bait and tackle shops, local outdoor writers, and fish and game departments.
