Fly Fishing


Anglers have long been drawn to the serenity and picturesque beauty of Vermont’s rivers and streams. Green Mountain Adventures understands this attraction and we do our utmost to provide fly-fishers of all ages and abilities the opportunity to answer the call of the water. Our half and full-day guided tours are suited for neophytes and old pros alike, and visit all Addison County streams, rivers and brooks.

Included in the price of your excursion is the use of rods, reels and waders. Accessories such as wading staffs are also provided at no additional cost.

A picnic lunch is provided with full-day tours.

The guides at Green Mountain Adventures have an array of excellent fly fishing areas within 15 minutes of downtown Middlebury. Fish for Wild Rainbows and Browns in Otter Creek, the New Haven and Middlebury Rivers. Float the larger waters of Otter Creek or the White River. Or explore the bounty of stillwaters, streams, creeks and tributaries in the surrounding Green Mountains. Our area also has world class warmwater species fly fishing for bass and northern pike. Whatever your fly fishing pleasure, Green Mountain Adventures can get you there.

Green Mountain Adventures is a Catch and Release guiding service.

Guided Float Trips

Allow us to take you for a drift through some of Vermont's most beautiful water. Miles of water awaits as we comfortably fish our way down the river. We will also stop and wade fish some of the remote riffles and runs, that few anglers ever walk too. Many of Vermont's large waterways do not see driftboat traffic, which makes our float trips very unique. No tippy canoes here! Our drift hardboats and rafts are very comfortable and stable. These trips, in our opinion, are some of the best trips in Vermont.
