LINCOLN, Neb. – With nearly 450 lakes and streams open to public fishing, deciding where to fish in Nebraska can sometimes be challenging. Daryl Bauer, Nebraska Game and Parks Commission fisheries outreach program manager, has provided some useful tips for anglers on the agency’s website.
A page on Game and Parks’ website lists the best waters to fish for specific species in 2017. It includes walleye, white bass, wiper, bluegill, crappie, largemouth bass, channel catfish, redear sunfish, smallmouth bass, blue catfish, flathead catfish, sauger, yellow perch, northern pike, bullhead, muskellunge, and trout.
“From brook trout to flathead catfish, a variety of species of sunfish to the biggest, baddest predators, Nebraska offers anglers a tremendous variety of quality fishing opportunities,” Bauer said.
