This Second Editionof Vermont’s Trophy Trout Waters: An Atlas and Guide not only updates all of the information of the first edition, but adds nine new lakes and ponds to the list of trophy waters. The inclusion of these waters, as well as the addition of a new four-mile section of one of Vermont’s loneliest rivers, signifies the most significant expansion of the state’s trophy trout program in fifteen years. For veteran local anglers this guide will be a great addition to their reference library, and provide many new fishing destinations. For the visiting angler or trout fishing newcomer, and especially families looking to try their hand at trout fishing, this atlas provides a guide to the fishing holes that will “inspire” their effort. The book includes:
Stocking summaries for all trophy trout rivers, lakes, and ponds
GPS coordinates to boat accesses on the lakes and ponds, and parking on stretches of rivers
No GPS navigator? Detailed directions are included in written form -- use the book as a stand-alone guide to get you there
More than sixty clear and simple, hand-drawn maps provide visual direction (these include more than twenty depth charts)
Boat accesses are rated from canoe carries to ramps appropriate for medium-sized boats with motors
Universal fishing platforms for wheelchair users, and others with mobility impairments, are noted where available
Basic geographic data: acreage, elevation, maximum depth, as well as reference to adjacent state parks, camping, invasive species alerts and other useful information
Over the last forty years, Vermont angling geographer, Peter Shea, has written and published a dozen books on trout fishing, including: Vermont Trout Streams; The New Atlas of Vermont Trout Ponds; Vermont Trout Hikes; In the Company of Trout; Long Trail Trout; and, Collateral Trout.
