Vermont Fishing Trips guide service also offers spin fishing trips for Northern Pike, Largemouth & Smallmouth Bass, and Panfish. Bass season is open in Vermont and the fishing is EXCELLENT. I supply all equipment so you purist fly guys can come over to the dark side without a purchase order....Tubes, jigs, stick baits, soft plastics, crankbait and jerk bait are all producing very well....Take a kid fishing!

Fly fishing for Bass

I guess the Bass and White Perch read my other post.....cause they made a big liar out of me this surface action started at 6:10 and ended about 7:30 am....during that window of time.....IT WAS RIPPING!!!!!! It looked like a mini- saltwater blitz.....lets go fishing!!!

Our afternoons have been extremely warm....there is no chance of catching me in waders this week!!! It is all wet wading and morning fishing. When I am personal fishing for Bass the boat is in the water at 4:30 am.....most clients want to meet at 6am we will catch them but you will miss the surface bite most days.

Trout fishing is good in the am too! Please leave the Trout alone in the afternoon unless you are on a mountain brook. Morning bugs include: BWO, tan caddis 16, and midges....but do not forget beetles and black ants....Japanese beetle are now present.....I even have them in my garden....
This is the time of the year to fish mountain brooks with the 6 foot 2weight!!!!!!!!!!
