Fishing Report

Many of the streams are snow and ice covered with low water conditions making fishing difficult. Some of the gauging stations are not showing flows due to ice. Expect slow fishing. Anyone looking to fish them should come prepared to hike in the snow. Access to Lamoille Canyon is limited due to snow with only the lower third of the canyon accessible by car. The upper reaches of the creek are ice coverd. As of November 18, Lamoille Creek reporting station was showing ice. There will be no further reports until next spring.

Pertinent Information

The average flow in Lamoille Creek is 3 to 5 cubic feet per second (cfs), but it may peak at 100 to 500 cfs during spring runoff in May and June. Wild brook trout occur throughout the entire 10 miles of stream down to the Forest Service property boundary and a few wild rainbow trout can be found below the Forest Service campground. The best time to fish is after spring runoff from July to October and for the most productive fishing, use bait (worms) or flies. Rainbow trout generally range from 10 to 11 inches. The Forest Service has a campground at Thomas Creek, but there are a few primitive camping areas near Right Fork. Picnic areas are also available.
