VT River Report – 8/1/2017
This time of year we like to take clients way up into the Green Mountain National Forrest in the mountains and target Brook Trout with Dry Flies and Terrestrials. Many of the spots are off from dirt roads and the brooks are small and cold. They are so beautiful its like a post card view in every direction. We use 3 and 4 wt rods and cover lots of water.
Popular flies include the Ausable Wulff, Green Caddis, White Wulff, Elk Hair Caddis, Stimulators, Adams, the Usual, Ant Patterns, Hoppers and Beatles. On some of the patterns that float well we will drop off a small bead head Nymph. Fishing a dry dropper or hopper dropper in these cool clear streams is a blast. For Nymphs we use a Copper John, PT Nymph, Hares Ear, Prince Nymph and Golden Stones.
Book a trip today and let us show you some of the most Vermonty looking spots in Vermont! (BC)
