FishingVermont is renowned for warm and coldwater fishing. More than 800 lakes and ponds and 7,000 miles of streams lie within the Green Mountains. Lake Champlain alone has a surface area of 435 square miles with challenging fishing for salmon, lake trout, steelhead rainbows, largemouth and smallmouth bass, northern pike, walleyes and more. Brook, brown and rainbow trout abound for stream fishing throughout the state. Detailed maps and information about the fish found in specific lakes and streams are included in the Vermont Hunting, Fishing and Trapping Guide available from the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department. We try to keep a copy on file in our lobby.
