Fly Fishing The Lamoille River Vermont
The Lamoille River begin at Horse Pond in Greensboro
Vermont and flows across the state towards Lake
Champlain. The is almost eighty-five miles in length. At
Hardwick the river receives water from Haynesville Brook
which increases its size for the very small stream it starts
The upper part is a small freestone stream that has
plenty of brook trout. Highway #16 follows along the river
to Hardwick. Prior to reaching East Hardwick, several
small tributary streams add to the flow. Each of them
have good populations of brook trout. Below East
Hardwick the river gains in flow and width and has a
good population of rainbows and brown trout. Fly fishing
the Lamoille River tributaries also offers some very good
There's a dam near the town of Wolcott that forms a
small lake where to first tailwater occurs. There's a
second dam located downstream at Morrisville and of
course, another tailwater. This dam forms Lake Lamoille.
This second tailwater is considered one of the best
areas for fly fishing the Lamoille River.
The river has some slow meandering stretches that
assist in adding to the water temperatures during the
Summer. In many cases, the water temperature may be
warmer in the upper part of the river than the lower
sections. Below Johnson, the water tends to warm up
again and fishing can be poor downstream from there
during the hot Summer.
Several tributaries along the length of the Lamoille River
help to keep the stream cool. In addition to those
mentioned above you also have Brewster River, the
Browns River, the North Branch of the Lamoille River,
the Green River and the Gihon River. They all provide
cool water and additional fishing opportunities.
