Guided Adirondack Fly Fishing Trips
Looking for a fly fishing guide in the Adirondacks?
The Adirondack Park offers some of the best fly-fishing in New York for Brown Trout, Brook Trout, and Rainbow Trout. On our 4 or 8 hour guided fly-fishing trips in the Adirondacks we will teach you the techniques needed to successfully target these fish.
Spring Fly Fishing in the Adirondacks
In the spring, immediately after ice out, the flows on the majority of the streams and rivers in the Adirondacks are too high and too cold to effectively target trout on the fly. Once the ice melt and heavy rains of spring are done, the waterways of the Adirondacks will becoming flowing with bug life and trout! Generally speaking, May and June offer great water flows and water temperatures to fly fish for trout in the Adirondacks. The most anticipated hatch of the spring is the Hendricksons. These large mayflies tend to bring even the spookiest of fish to the surface, leaving them susceptible to being caught on a well presented dry fly. If flows and water temperatures are in our favor, we will spend the day chasing fish on dry flies. However, if conditions do not allow that, fish can be easily taken with streamers or nymphs. Spring is the prime time to book a guided fly fishing trip in the Adirondacks.
Summer Fly Fishing in the Adirondacks
In the summer months of July and August, trout fishing in the larger rivers of the Adirondacks can become quite difficult and we usually result to nymphing in deeper pockets of cool, oxygenated water. However, if we are granted adequate rainfall, the summer can be a great time to catch fish on large dry fly attractors such as Hoppers. On the flip side, the small stream Brook Trout fishing in the Adirondacks during this time can be a blast. Our mountain streams usually run less than 68 degrees all summer, providing us with great action. These fish are not large, but their beauty makes up for it!
The average small stream Brook Trout in the Adirondacks will run 6-12" while larger rivers will hold Brown Trout up to 20".
From the small mountain streams to the large glacier carved rivers, you are sure to encounter beautiful scenery on these guided fly fishing trips in the Adirondacks.
All tackle will be provided EXCEPT waders and we're willing to accommodate most any reasonable request.
