Typical Weather by Season

Spring, Summer, & Fall in New England is a fairly comfortable place to fish. Warm clothes and Raingear is something I always bring along in case of inclimate weather. The Temps can fluctuate between mid 50's and upper 80's so it is always best to check the forecast a few days before the trip.

The fall and winter in upstate NY can be a frigid place to fish. It is best to bring base layers, fleece pants, proven rain gear and hand warmers the later in to the season we're fishing.

Date Range

April 1 - December 15

What is Provided to Customer

Customers will have the best tackle to use. One piece fly rods for saltwater trips, Switch & Spey Rods for river trips.

Itinerary

Sample of Typical Trip

A typical saltwater trip is 6-8 hours on the water with lunch and beverages provided by the captain. Typically, we meet early (6am) and will fish vigorously until mid day. Casting lessons and fishing help is a staple of Boston Flyfishing if someone wants to improve.
