Fall Means Ideal Fishing Conditions for Anglers

./photos/2014/blurb_fall_Bass_fishing_2014.jpg

The fall season brings out some of the year’s hottest fishing action on lakes, ponds, rivers and streams throughout Vermont.  

From warm water species such as largemouth and smallmouth bass, northern pike, perch, and walleye, to cold water species like trout and salmon, fish feeding activity really picks up across the board and creates exceptional fishing conditions for anglers.

Fishing pressure on Vermont waters also decreases significantly as the seasons change, so there is less competition from other anglers.

One enhanced fall angling opportunity is bass fishing, whether it be on world-renowned Lake Champlain, the diverse Connecticut River or one of Vermont’s many smaller lakes and ponds.

Other hot fall fishing action typically includes walleye fishing on the Connecticut River, landlocked salmon fishing on the Clyde River, and trout and salmon fishing on Lake Champlain, among various other opportunities.

Take advantage of the prime fishing available this time of year and purchase a fishing license today.
