Lawn Love ranked every state in the U.S. to determine 2021’s Best and Worst States for Fishing by looking at these four things:

  • High levels of community interest in the sport
  • An abundance of water sources
  • Easy access to gear
  • Affordable fishing licenses

They also provided in-depth results, fishing by numbers (for the U.S.) and fishing experts’ take. In addition to Alabama’s high ranking, one of the experts who gave their take is Russell A. Wright, an Associate Professor & Extension Specialist at Auburn University.
