What is Drift Fishing?
Drift fishing is exactly what the name implies. Fishing (with a fly rod, live bait or spin rod and reel) from a Drift Boat. Drift Boats are fast becoming popular – because they offer an excellent way to get out to where the fish are. Any fly fisherman who has ever slipped on rock will agree – Drift Boat Fishing is easier, safer and more productive.
Drift fishing involves dropping your Drift boat in the river and drifting downstream powered only by a set of oars. This is quiet and clean. Completely Green. No polluting motor – in fact, no motor of any kind.
The Drift Boat we fished on was made by a company called Clacka-Craft. The Drift Boat manufacturers slogan is “Fear No Rock”. The boat is rugged – more than an inch thick of solid fiberglass. That fact made me feel a bit easier as we hit the rapids.
The boat can float in just a few inches of water and maneuvers quite well. It has a mid-boat, bottom-mounted anchor that can be dropped to help hold you in place on the river as you fish the pools and rapids.
Rainbow Trout – Brook Trout and Landlocked Salmon
Browns, rainbows, brookies (also called square tails), and landlocked salmon are the primary fish of prey. The Connecticut River and Androscoggin are known to harbor these species and more. On our Androscoggin drift boat fishing trip we caught native and stocked Rainbow trout, brook trout, a sucker, a dice. The majority of the fish caught were Rainbow trout. The fast-flowing water is clean and well-oxygenated and the trout can be seen chasing your fly or lure.
Drift Fishing Vacations
Planning a Drift Fishing Vacation is easy. The tours begin in northern New Hampshire and take place in either the Connecticut or Androscoggin River. Decide which river to fish after talking with your Fishing Guide.
