THINGS TO DO
guided fly fishing excursions
Embark on a breathtaking Vermont fly fishing adventure
Discover the pristine beauty of Vermont fly fishing during your next New England getaway, all the while enjoying the absolute comfort of
The Essex. Here, you're just moments from some of the area's most stunning trout waters.
Start the day casting to big cruising browns and 'bows on the Winooski River with our friends at
Green Mountain Troutfitters
and as the sun gets higher move down the road to a tributary and fish up into the mountains for native brook trout and wild rainbows.
Enjoy three seasons of wonderment on the area's big river systems during your Burlington fly fishing excursion, all within an hour of the Resort.
Spring is the time of big hatches, big rainbows, and small mouth runs. As summer sets in, look more to the brook trout and 'bows in the higher
streams for mid-day action, and fish the bigger rivers on either end of the day. Fall fishing in Vermont brings some great hatches and very
active brown trout, as they move out of the big rivers into the tributaries to spawn.
When your day is through, come back home to The Essex and share your fish stories around our
