Default Battenkill Around Manchester, Vt. Questions

Hello,

Have always wanted to try the Battenkill around Manchester, Vt., and have
the following questions, please:

a. is it "worth it" ? Or just stick to the Deerfield ?

b. how is it in the heart of the summer, e.g., late July into Aug. ?

c. how necessary or desireable is a Guide ?

Any other thoughts or opinions would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Bob

Allot of tubers in the summer but it is good. The Deerfield is good
below the Damm where is runs into the Lake Wittingham is good.

The best stream to check out is the Mettawee. It is an awesome wild
rainbow, brown, and brookl stream. It is about 30 to 40 minutes from
Manchester.

Get a guide. It is tricky to find the non private water. Even the
private water you can fish if the guide knows the farmers.

At that time of year, I would suggest fishing the West Arlington area.
You will find very good Trico action early in the morning, and usually
BWO spinner falls and terrestrial activity late in the evening. As the
previous poster said, avoid mid day, as the tubers, swimmers, and
boaters make life difficult. I wouldn't bother with a guide. The West
Arlington section is easily accessible from rte 313 and from River
Road, which parallels 313 from the opposite bank, and if you have even
limited trout fishing experience, you can locate some good spots to
fish. I haven't fished it recently, but those that have tell me it has
rebounded pretty well since the C&R regulations were instituted
several years ago. Also, this is one of the prettiest stretches of
river that I have ever fished.
