Four Nebraska Lakes Among Top 100 for Fishing and Boating

LINCOLN – Voters have selected four Nebraska lakes to a list of 100 family-friendly boating and fishing lakes in the nation.

The following Nebraska lakes made the annual top 100 list, which is compiled annually by the Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation (RBFF): Lake McConaughy State Recreation Area (SRA), No. 14; Harlan County Reservoir, No. 28; Lake Wanahoo SRA, No. 47; and Two Rivers SRA, No. 73.

Florida’s Everglades National Park was voted the No. 1 place to fish and boat in America. The list was announced June 1 by RBFF.

Criteria for the top places to boat and fish included having a public body of water within an hour of a major city, good fishing opportunities and family-friendly amenities.

RBFF also encouraged Nebraskans and anglers and boaters across the nation to celebrate National Fishing and Boating Week, June 6-14, by enjoying their favorite fishing or boating lakes.

RBFF is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to increase participation in recreational fishing and boating, thereby restoring and protecting the nation’s aquatic natural resources.
