The Battenkill River begins in the Green Mountains and flows about 50 miles into New York. There is a lot of history in this area and it is home of the Orvis headquarters which sits along side banks on Route 7A. This is a year round stream that holds native browns and brook trouts and is fed cold water from underground springs that cool off the stream in the summer.

One of the best rivers in the state is the Clyde River. Clyde begins in Specatcle Pond and flows into Island Pond in Brighton. The river runs northwest through Charleston and eventually empties into Lake Memphremagog located in Newport. Outside of a 3 mile stretch of water near the mouth of the stream, this water is a very slow passing through a series of ponds, several of them are very large ponds. The river is nearly 25 miles long and it does have some class III rapids.
The Clyde River is well known for its history of landlocked salmon runs.
The Clyde River
Otter Creek, located in Vermont is another of the great fishing streams in the state. The river begins near Rutland and eventually empties into Lake Champlain near Vergennes. The river has many types of fish including Small mouth Bass, Pike, Steelhead, Brown Trout and Gar to name a few. Since this is mostly warm water the trout are not as plentiful, but there are some nice ones to be had especially near the tributaries.
