Mountain Stream Fly Fishing | Guided Fly Fishing Trips : New Hampshire, White Mountains

Backcountry Fly Fishing in the White Mountains of NH Hampshire. Fishing for wild and stocked brook, brown and rainbow trout.  Over the past eighteen years, I’ve been hiking and fishing a multitude of mountain streams in and around the White Mountains. These streams provide exceptional dry fly fishing for both wild and stocked brook, brown and rainbow trout. Fishing these streams does require some hiking that can range from a tenth of a mile to three miles, depending on your ability and preference.  Trout from ten to over twelve inches are not uncommon on these trips. Mountain streams can be effectively fished with dry flies, but I’ll show you a few seldom used techniques that catch the biggest fish in the river.

What to Expect:

Mountain streams are generally high in gradient and in remote locations. While some require hiking to fish, many are a short walk from the road. These rivers offer productive dry fly fishing for fly fishers of varying ability levels. If you are willing to do some walking, this type of trip can be the best way to catch high numbers of both wild and stocked trout. If you are a novice angler, mountain streams are a great place to learn crucial fly fishing techniques. The quantity of trout provides a great opportunity to learn effective hook setting skills. More advanced anglers may want to request larger mountain streams that offer technical angling opportunities.
