Fly Fishing Gear, Tackle and Trout Flies Winooski River Vermont
We recommend either a 4, 5 or 6 weight fly line for the trout in the Winooski River. You mostly
only need floating lines. You will want a sinking line and/or sinking tip lines for streamer
fishing. Line sizes for landlocked Atlantic salmon should range from 6 to 8 weight
We recommend either a 4, 5 or 6 weight fly rod for each line size you choose to use for trout.
The fly rods should in a med-fast to fast action and a 9 foot length. For salmon, a 6 to 8
weight fly rod in a medium fast to fast action and nine foot length.
The fly reels used should be for each of the different lines you use and each should have a
very good drag. We prefer disc drags but there are other types that will work as well. It should
Leaders for trout should size 0X to 6X and be from 71/2 to 12 feet long. You may want some
short leaders of 3 or 4 feet for streamers. Leaders for salmon should be 9 feet for single
handed rods up to 16 feet for Spey rods. They should range from 0 to 2X in size.
You should have spare tippet in 0X and 6X for trout and salmon.
Waders are necessary. We prefer the breathable type.
Waders are necessary for the Winooski River and we would recommend them anywhere you
fish the stream.
The new rubber soles (non-felt) wading boots should be used .
A landing net is purely an optional item.
We recommend "Perfect Flies". Thats not only because we sell them, its also because
we think they are the best flies you can purchase. If you haven't done so already, we hope
you will give them a try. You will be glad you did. You will find they are a huge benefit in
catching the larger wild and holdover trout in Vermont's Winooski River.
