Water Sports and Fishing

Water Sports and Fishing

A common misconception about Vermont is its lack of great water sports. While it’s true that Vermont doesn’t have a seacoast – Lake Champlain, known as the Inland Sea, is 125 miles of water filled fun along the state’s western border with New York. Vermont also has a great many other, large and small, pristine and often interconnected lakes and rivers surrounded by the beautiful rolling hills and peaks of the Green Mountains.

The Green Mountains offer whitewater rafting and kayaking, canoeing and paddling, lake and river fishing, and challenging raft and camp expeditions – especially in the Northeast Kingdom. Our brook, brown and rainbow trout provide legendary back-woods fly-fishing.

The exceptional North Forest Canoe Trail passes through northern Vermont on its journey from the Adirondacks to northern Maine. Try our river and winery tours, Vermont Lake District quiet-water canoe tours with overnights at romantic inns with great dining options available en route. So, for New England’s only ‘land-locked’ state you’ll find plenty of reasons to get wet in the Green Mountains.
