The management area on Otter Creek in Danby, Vt is the place to be! Make sure to pack good polarized glasses....seeing fish before you fish is VERY IMPORTANT. I fish flies dead drift WITHOUT an indicator and swing streamers....The white flashy fly with a 3/16"tungsten bead is my all time favorite. Cast well above the fish to let the fly sink to the fishes level and then strip it away from the fish....the trophy fish on Otter Creek really like stripped streamers....the upcoming weather forecast is awesome....LIFE is SHORT>>>>>GO FISHING!

It is open!

Trout season is open in Vermont! The snow in the valley is gone, ice is off Lake St. Catherine, Bomoseen and the beaver ponds, LET THE GAMES BEGIN! The forecast for today is mid 60's with sun...I am out of here shortly to scout/fish a small river in Pawlet. Time flies this time of the year....don't be left out, there are some prime Trophy dates still open and now since runoff is near complete I can book early dates with complete confidence...Lets go fishing!

2013 Vermont Trout Season

The 2013 Vermont Trout Season opens Saturday April 13th. Even though we had a pretty big winter this year, the run off is coming off perfectly! Last year, we had a really warm March and a cold what happened was everything got going and then got put on hold. This year is much more normal.... I expect to see early black stones on the Mettawee and Flower Brook... black midges and blue quills on the branches...on warm sunny afternoons the Brook Trout will be rising! Thanks for the view and please stay tuned.
