Fishing Tips for the Deerfield River
by Mark S
on December 6th
John D got the fishing tips right but he did miss one thing you might find important. Every morning at about mid-morning a whole lot of water is released from the dam to help with the commercial rafting operations. In fact enough water is released that it raises the water levels a few feet until the midafternoon. The surge does not bother the trout too much but you have to be careful you are not wading or on the other side of the river when it happens. Other than that John D covered everything. Good luck fishing!
Well Stocked with Rainbows, Browns and Brooks

The Deerfield River is a well-stocked river running from Southern Vermont through Northwestern Massachusetts, where it joins the Connecticut River. Trout season begins mid-April, and the fish are abundant. Early in the season the river sees a lot of spinning fishermen, but as spring turns into summer, the river becomes more populated with fly fishermen. Decent fly fishing can occur until early December in most years, though as the weather becomes colder you will need to hone your fishing skills, and pay much more attention to fly selection. Begin your fishing at Fife brook, and if the trout aren’t biting, simply pack up and move a bit downstream. Massachusetts keeps the river very well stocked, so finding the fish is not usually that difficult.
