If you're a serious angler, you've already dusted the cobwebs off of your rod, oiled your reel, and tied your flies. Now that you've got a head start, it's time to start mapping out your spring fishing trips. If you're in Tennessee, it's all about largemouth bass on Percy Priest Lake. New York is a trout fisherman's paradise this spring, and if you're out West you don't want to pass up Oregon's Clackamas River for some incredible steelhead fishing.

Here are all the best places to fish in your state this month, as well as the species to shoot for and the best tactics to use. So pack the cooler, pick up your buddies, and hightail it out to get out on the water!
