Rainbow trout is native to the American West, and was introduced to Vermont in the early 1800′s. A beautiful fish. The tail and flanks are heavily spotted with small, well-defined black spots. Migratory lake-run rainbow trout, also known as steelheads, are silver-ish in color.
Lake Champlain Fishing Charters fishes for Steelhead-Rainbow trout is a real great fish. Best month is May. Lures are mostly small spoons on downriggers and planner boards fishing in shallow water. Rainbow trout sizes are 5-10lbs.
One of the best rainbow caught on our fishing charter was 8lbs. These fish jump and fight the most of all our fish that we catch aboard our Fish N Rigg charter.
Our rates are very affordable; 1-6 people can fish 4-6 hours of actual fishing. Call or E-Mail for current rates. We GUARANTEE fish or you can choose another trip at no charge or your money back! Reservations are required.
