Hey everyone,

my friends uncle lives in barnet vermont and he invited me to go and fish. What is good around there? I noticed a few small ponds, but i also noticed the connecticut river. According to fishbrsin there are willeye, smb, pickerel and pike. Anything else notable? What works there?

also, does anyone know any guides near the area? I want yo have at least one day where we can big game fish, doesnt matter what

What time of the year are you planning on going up?  That will make a difference as to what you can target.  My sister's has had a place in Vermont for about 40 years.  I could help you with the southeast Vermont area.  She brought a house in Waitsfield, which is west of where you'll be going, about 3 years ago.  I'm still learning the area.  There are largemouth and smallmouth in a couple of the lakes and reservoir near her place. 

  I'm thumbing through the 2022 Vermont Fishing Guide & Regulations she picked up for me.  These ponds/lakes are in the general area where you'll be, Lake Groton, Harvey's Lake, Joe's Pond, Kettle Pond, Molly's Falls Reservoir, and Peacham Pond.  They have bass, largemouth or smallmouth or both, chain pickerel or pike, panfish and some have trout.  The Stevens River has brown and rainbow trout,  but you might find bass where it flows into the Connecticut River. 

  As far as what to use, as you know I mainly fly fish, and I catch bass, chain pickerel and panfish on the same flies I use down here.  I figure whatever lures, jigs, spinner/buzz baits you use around should work in Vermont.  I would think, if there are any in that area, would be focused on trout fishing.  No clue about Lake Champlain, but's its at least a two or three hour drive west.

Did you ever find spot?

 

I have fished Ricker Pond which is really close, Lake Elmore and Lake Lamoille in that area.

Let me know if you do. Also if you're willing to drive a couple hours there is Lake Dunmore (I can put you on some good spots there if you have a boat) and Lake Champlain, which is probably your best chance of finding a guide.

For non-Champlain lakes, Matt Applebaum is the man for guiding the small waters.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On Champlain if you aren't using Bryan Labelle you're wasting your time.
