River Drift is a fully outfitted and licensed fly fishing guide operation based in Northern VT and NY. From The Northeast Kingdom in VT to The beautiful Adirondack Mountains of NY, we provide guides to help you attain your fly fishing dreams. We take pride in our states and their wilderness and always look forward to sharing it with like minded folks.
If you want to expand your species list on the fly, THAT IS OUR SPECIALTY!!! We target multiple species of fish. Trout, Salmon, Steelhead and all the warm water contenders alike! We have a passion for larger more exotic fish such as Northern Pike, Musky, Small and Large Mouth Bass, Longnose Gar, Bowfin and Carp. If that is your goal we recommend taking a drift float down one of the many rivers for Pike and Musky. When a 3-4 ft fish chases your fly down you will know what we mean! Certain times of the year also provide great opportunities to see Longnose Gar and Bowfin.
Regardless of your experience level, we can provide a great day on the water to meet your needs. From Novice to Advanced, let us know what we can do for you! We welcome anyone who wants to try fly fishing for their first time as well. We have instructional trips that we design to teach you all the basics of fly casting 101. All instructional trips are on the water lessons with the fish. We want to make sure you are outside on the water and ready to catch fish. Giving back what was taught to us is the big idea, with the hopes that you can then learn and teach someone down the line as well.
Lets go outside and have some fun on the water! We can’t wait to show you what we love!! ~MT
