Walk and wade trips are our most popular service, we will spend either a full or half day exploring the rivers and streams of Vermont on foot. We also offer a short walk and wade “Fish the Hatch” service if you are hoping to hit seasonal hatches, or small time windows of availability. Vermont has and abundance of beautiful free stone streams and rivers that provide excellent dry fly, nymph fishing, or tossing streamers. We do our best at Stream and Brook to make sure that the experience is as enjoyable as the instruction. Whether it’s stalking brookies in the cool mountain streams or casting clear across a river to a sipping brown we are there to support you. Or tempting hungry Smallmouth Bass with streamers. We are happy to build these trips around your schedule and interests. If you are looking for something different check out our Norther Pike and Other Species services for a chance at an exotic trophy.

These trips will be done in a canoe, a great way to fly fish our slower running rivers, ponds, and even Lake Champlain. Limit one angler per guide, and we can target trout, bass, pike, or lesser known species that can provide some amazing fly fishing action. Many of these are warm water species and offer an alternative to trout streams in the heat of the summer.
