Fishing in Vermont has taken some time to get used to. Having grown up in the west, I am accustomed to big rivers and not having to worry too much about my back casts. Although navigating the small mountain streams in the East is a much different experience, it’s still fishing, and that’s all that matters. Today, fellow Orvis employee Jess McGlothlin and I grabbed our rods and hit the Roaring Branch for a midday break from work and found some beautiful brook trout. The past week has been relatively quiet on this stream, but today the fish were hungry. I am hoping to get out as much as I can before the season ends—the next 25 days are going to fly by!

I love catching native brookies in the small brooks and streams around my home. Maine has some terrific brook trout fishing.
Nice job ladies…take advantage of it while you still can. This winter is claiming to be a doozy!
