Vermont Guided Fishing Excursions

Northern Vermont offers hundreds of miles of unpressured trout streams and some of the most breathtaking scenery in all of New England!

Our guide trips are all inclusive.  You need only provide a current Vermont Fishing License (which your guide can arrange for) and personal items. Many guests bring all of their own equipment, but if you need rods and reels or wading gear, we will provide it for you. All flies are provided by your guide, and their boxes are filled with all the right flies to get the job done. Plenty of bottled water and non-alcoholic beverages are provided and we make every possible attempt to accommodate any special requests.

The Troutfitters offer a multitude of guided fishing excursions for all skill levels and age groups. Guided services include.....

Walk n' Wade River/Stream Tours

Catch the morning trout-bite and be back at the condo by for hungry river smallmouth with poppers in the evening...escape the summer heat with small stream brook trout...

Whatever works!...just leave the phone at home and let's go fishing!

We do our best to work with your schedule and the schedule that the fish prefer most :)
Our most common trips are 4-5 hour "Half-Days" but when you book us, we're yours for the day.  Whether it's 4 hours, 6 hours or 8, it's up to you and our guides will give you 100% until the last second!



River Drift Boat Trips

We have a 13.5' Star inflatable drift boat that is undoubtedly the best rig for floating our larger rivers.  It's comfortable, it's quiet and we can float areas that many fixed-hull drift boats cannot. 
We offer these trips primarily May-June and after September and they accommodate no more than 2 anglers.  


Lake Fishing

Vermont is LOADED with lakes and reservoirs of all sizes and we LOVE bass fishin'!  Our boats our well maintained, US Coast Guard Approved and fully set up for fly fishing with casting platforms, trolling motors and plenty of room for a party of 2 anglers.
                                                 or call  802-730-4298


Large Groups 

We are happy to accomodate corporate groups, bachelor parties or family gatherings.  We have a well stocked arsenal of waders and boots of many sizes along with a wide array of trout/bass sized rods.

Conventional Bass Fishing

We're proud to have partnered with local bass fishing pro, Matt Applebaum to offer world class conventional bass fishing outings on Vermont's inland lakes and reservoirs for the whole family!  Matt operates a fully rigged, 21' Nitro bass boat and has won numerous bass tournaments in and around Vermont
