Small Stream Fly Fishing Trips
The Rangeley Region is a great place to escape the crowds and explore the many smaller streams our backcountry offers. Brooks and streams of all sizes hold native brookies that come readily to a fly. Our fly fishing guides love to take fisherman into the back country to explore and share the quite places. The typical streams we fish on these trips offer a diversity of water, sometimes fast riffles and other times long stretches of alternating cut banks. Part of the fun on these trips is never knowing what lies around the next bend. The best timing for our backcounrty adventures is mid to late summer. As the water temps on the bigger rivers warm the smaller streams and headwaters stay cooler. This cooler water means an abundance of healthy, active native brook trout. Most times all we fish for a fly are dry flies like Klinkhamer Emerger, Adams and Purple Haze. The brookies in these smaller streams are generally no bigger then 10 inches and are best fished for with smaller weight, shorter rods. We encourage you to join us on a guided backcountry adventure.
