Mid April

Lamoille River opening weekend 2018

The season is underway and so far it has been a wet, cold & raw start.  Despite that, there are fish being caught so if you brave the cold, you might get rewarded.  The cold weather has definitely kept some rivers clean with decent visibility.  There is still a lot of snow in the mountains (80 in. on Mansfield) so at this rate, runoff will take awhile.
Streamers and eggs are most of what I throw in April but stone fly nymphs and pink/red worm also will get attention.  As we get into May, I will start throwing more nymphs and soft hackles.
Speaking of May, if you would like to fish some prime dates in late May, please email us at gmtvermont@gmail.com and we would be happy to get you out on the water.

Green Mtn. Fly Fishing camps are back for our 6th season and while our sleep away camps are full we do have spots available in our day camps in August.  If you are interested please check the site at gmffc.com.

The Ditch Pickle Classic returns to Lake Champlain this June 23rd & 24th!  This fly fishing tourney that we host with friends is going on its 8th year and we couldn't be more happy to keep the train rolling and do it again.  Please check fishthepickle.com for all the info and to register your team.

As fishing picks up, so will reports.  Good luck out there!
