Fly Fishing

Fly fishing the Upper Connecticut River

The headwaters of the Connecticut River offer the some of the finest fly fishing in New England and the East!

Whether this is your first time fly fishing or fly fishing has been your passion for years, the Upper Connecticut River offers good accessibility and variety of fishing opportunities. The ‘Trophy Stretch’ of the Upper Connecticut River, a short distance from our shop and cabins, is a two mile stretch of the river that is ‘fly fishing only’. In this stretch of river you’ll find native landlocked salmon, brook trout, rainbow trout and brown trout.

We’re here to help! We offer a full service Orvis Fly Shop, complete with fly suggestions, rental fly fishing gear and knowledgeable Orvis Endorsed fly fishing guides to show you the river and teach how to fish it successfully.

Our fishing season stretches from early May and stay consistently good until the season ends October 15th. Our good, consistant fishing is thanks in part to two tail-water dams which keep the river flowing cold all summer long. Diversity is another great asset! Like to float the river? The Connecticut River and the Androscoggin offer great fly fishing and we offer driftboat guide service on both rivers.

We can outfit your entire northern New England trout fishing vacation! Check our cozy cabin accommodations; we have a cabin for every angler’s taste and budget.
