Here in Georgia we have a "Go Fishing" initiative . There is even a "Go Fishing" welcome and information center in Central Georgia (Southeast of Macon in Bonaire). It was a former governor's "boondoggle", but it is unique and VERY informative of the fishing opportunities throughout the Peach State.

Florida, Alaska, Michigan and Louisiana.......these states are hands down the fishing capitals of the USA. All depends on what kind of fishing you want and your climate preferences.

Alabama is definitely high on the list in this regard.

I'm a bass fisherman but I also love getting out light tackle and hitting panfish. I'd also like to avoid too much humidity if possible as I'm from the West.

I'm guessing Michigan might be best for me based on that?

Louisiana is the game state. We have to rank somewhere near Florida. There's more freshwater fishing opportunities in south east Louisiana than you can shake a rod at. Also inland and coastal saltwater fishing.

Well if you want to avoid humidity then the best fishing states aren't the best for you.

Michigan fishing is known for its smallmouth bass, walleye, lake trout and salmon. There are also tons of panfish there. Humidity is part of the climate east of the Great Plains but a far north place like Michigan is much less humid than the southeastern states. A westerner might be able to tolerate upper Midwest humidity more so than the humidity in Florida or Louisiana.

Overall, I think New York state is a major contender.

Ponds, lakes, northern species, warm water species, trout to bass to walleye, wide and deep brackish river, swift water, world-class fly fishing, surf casting and deep water salt.

Consider South Carolina. Anderson (Lake Hartwell) and Clemson/Seneca (Hartwell, Lake Keowee, Lake Jocasse). Small towns near the Blue Ridge mountains with a lot of state and country parks.
