Movement Among Local Anglers to Rebuild and Re-enhance Local Fisheries

Fishing for Everyone
Whether avid angler or not, there's something for everyone. Casting clinics are offered which teach wannabe fishermen the basics of the subtle art of placing a fly delicately out on the surface of a pond or stream where a trout might soon rise to the lure.
Guided tours are offered to all sorts of proven locations. The subtleties of fishing dictate a need for extensive local knowledge of where and what the fish are biting. Local guides are eager to take beginner to advanced anglers to various streams to test their skills.
Variety of Fishing Venues an Eyeopener
One day you can be working the upper tributaries of the Lamoille River and a day later casting from a float tube onto Sterling Pond located at the very top of Smuggler's Notch. You might be fishing on Wolcott Pond or from Lake Eden but no matter where you go, you will enjoy being there. Savor the experience of drifting serenely along the edge of a pristine pond located almost 4000' above sea level. Afterall, there's more to fishing than just catching fish.
