For some reason... Tiger Swallowtail Butterflies like the mud on the river banks this time of the year....between the purple and white phlox in bloom, the butterflies and the trout on a major chew... its a great time to come to Vermont Fly Fishing for Trout.


It is Prime Time folks and there are some openings throughout the please call or email....the focus will be shifting shortly to Otter, Battenkill, the Mettawee and to Lake Fishing.... Thanks for the view and please stay tuned!

Vermont Trophy Trout Fishing

The fishing over Memorial Day weekend was EXCELLENT. Following are some pictures from the Bernard and Marie-Luce Terver Party.
Hot fly patterns this weekend were size 10 BH trailer by either a hatching pupa or a peacock softhackle....nothing fancy in my eyes but it was another really good weekend of trips. THANK YOU FOR EMAILING ME PHOTOS!!! I can not really carry a camera with my chest box and loaded your pictures are greatly appreciated!

All the rivers have come down level wise and are in great shape. The hatchery fisheries(east, otter, black and walloomsac)are getting fish now. The wild Trout streams are also in great shape. Its PRIME TIME FOLKS! Lets go fishing.

My trip yesterday with Bruce Nelson, one of my best clients. We fished flashy flies on Secret Creek and for the conditions did very well....this next bunch of weeks the fishing will be AWESOME...

We are currently blown out in Southern Vermont for trout fishing rivers....the weather forecast is promising so I am guessing we will be OK for this weekend. Bennington got over 2 inches of rain but the Walloomsac does drop fast....Otter Creek however doesn't drop fast and will be unfish-able for awhile. East Creek and the Black River should be fine for the weekend. On the right side of the blog there are web links to the U.S.G.S. water data sites....check them out...thanks for the view!

Vermont fly fishing for Trout on East Creek in Rutland, Vt. is EXCELLENT!!! Rainbow Trout 15 to 22" are spread throughout the trophy area. Daily Vt. flyfishing guided trips on the Black River in Ludlow or East Creek in Rutland start at 9am. This spring has been pretty dry and the water levels have been perfect, so the hatches are well under way in most of my target areas. The fishing is very good right now. Currently, I have a bunch of prime “WEEKEND” May dates open: May 5, 12, 13, 26, and 28. There are also weekday openings, so if you want to fish with me…CALL 1 (800) 682-0103. Last year, we did very well for trophy trout on dryflies in mid-May. I am confident we will see rising Brown Trout again on the Black river this year. Vermont Hatches in early May include: Hendricksons, Rusty Spinners, Yellow Sally Stoneflies, Early Black Stones and we should start to seeing some Caddis soon. Hot flies: McCheese egg, Cherise egg, Tunsten hares ear trailed by a hendrickson nymph, soft hackles and hatching pupa. For Dry Flies: Ausable Wulff dry size 14, Hendrickson Usual, and Gray Adams size 16. Streamers: BH White Flashy, BH Brown/Copper Flashy, Shushan Postmaster and Black Nose Dace.
