According to the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, the range of fisher cats, or fishers, extends across North America from Southeast Alaska to the Hudson Bay and into the northern U.S. They are also found in Wyoming's Rocky Mountains and California's Sierra Nevada mountains.
The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department states that fisher cats live in forests and forest wetlands. They build dens in hollow logs and trees, tree roots, rocky areas and brush piles.
