Fly Fishing Vermont | Fishing Champlain

All told, we had another good year fly fishing in Vermont and eager for many more. We are fortunate and blessed to have such abundant trout waters in our small state. Nine portions of Vermont’s rivers stay open as catch and release thru winter and many of these hold good trout populations. Keep your line wet.

Experience why warmwater species is our fastest growing guided excursion. Fishing to these exceptionally aggressive fish can make for some of the funnest fly fishing in Vermont. You can float remote stretches of river working large flies near bank side cover or toss poppers between lilypads on local stillwater. These trips offer a great option when the heat of summer is on and trout sulk, though fishing is consistent from mid-May through October. Drifting is done on one of our hardboat or rafts. No tippy canoes!
