Walk-and-wade makes for classic fly-angling. Using this approach, we fish not only the Middlebury River, but also the White River and its tributaries to the east, and the New Haven and Mad Rivers to the north. Brook, brown, and rainbow trout are the target species. Some watercourses are stocked, but many hold only wild brook trout − our favorite.
Fly-fishing has a way of cleansing the doors of perception. With that in mind, we also can take you to a number of brooks in Vermont’s Taconic region to the south. Many of these flow over slate substrate, resulting in natural selection for brook trout with blue coloration − very striking. Imagine seeing the Infinite when you hold this gem of a fish in the palm of your hand!
