The Northeast is a region larger than New England. In addition to Connecticut, Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts, this designated area usually includes the states of Pennsylvania, Maryland, New York, New Jersey, and Delaware too. That makes for a lot of northeast boating potential.
Northeast boating can provide access to some great fisheries. A little online investigating can help you decide where to boat. For example, states with access to the Great Lakes have salmon and steelhead. In addition to lake trout, Vermontâ€™s Lake Champlain is highly ranked for smallmouth and largemouth bass. Â And according to the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife, “Maine is the only state with extensive intact populations of wild, self-reproducing brook trout in lakes and ponds, including some lakes over 5,000 acres in size.
Boating in the northeast also means outstanding opportunities for picturesque views, spectacular woodlands and colors of foliage especially in fall, and maybe even a glimpse of wildlife. Depending on the northeast state and how remote the body of water, bald eagles, bears, moose, or otters may be sighted.
And then as you are boating in the northeast, or anywhere for that matter, there is the fact that boating is just plain fun. Â You are traveling from Point A to Point B, in style. You can cruise in a convertible on water with the wind in your remaining hair. Just make sure to keep your boat registration up to date and follow all safety recommendations.
