cast for a fresh catch

Whether you want to troll on a lake for today's catch, don a pair of waders and try your luck in the river, or simply cast a line from shore, you'll have plenty of fishing spots to choose from in the Northeast Kingdom. Enjoy the tranquility of Job's Pond as you try to land brook trout. Rainbow and brown trout are plentiful in the Passumpsic River, and in the Clyde River you could find landlocked Atlantic salmon at the end of your line. Don't let the winter temperatures slow you down, grab some jigs and an auger — along with your thermals — and settle in for a day of ice fishing on Lake Memphremagog, Crystal Lake, or Joe's Pond. Read the rules and regulations, tips on hot spots, and more details about fishing in Vermont by visiting the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department.

Explore Our Lakes

explore the wilderness

From Groton State Forest in southern Caledonia County to the Silvio O. Conte National Fish and Wildlife Refuge in Essex County to Jay State Forest in Orleans County, and everywhere in between there are so many places to explore in the Northeast Kingdom. Visit Eagle Point Wildlife Management Area, where you may hear the call of a bobolink, sparrows, osprey, or great horned owl, and perhaps spot a bald eagle. Lace up your hiking boots and hit a trail for some spectacular summit views. Discover unique plant life, like the purple pitcher plant, as you meander through Peacham Bog. No matter the season, there's also something interesting waiting to be found.

your private sanctuary

It's what we all seek, a place where we can relax and reinvigorate our souls. However, the definition of sanctuary varies for everyone. A simple stone fire pit in the backyard for Sunday s'mores. An off-grid cabin tucked among the trees with no neighbors in sight. A mini farm, where you can dig in the dirt to your heart's content and spend your days in the company of animals. A waterfront cottage with a private dock and the sound of loons in the distance. A ski chalet for weekends away. A rustic camp bordered by acres of public land. A Victorian home in a tight-knit community with a front porch swing. However you envision your happy place, we'd love to help you turn that dream into a reality.

connect with the land

Many Vermonters enjoy a self-sufficient lifestyle, often using wood from their land to heat and sometimes even build their homes. To ensure they can put fresh, local food on their tables they hunt for deer, moose, and bear and fish in the lakes, ponds, and rivers. They raise chickens, cows, and pigs for their eggs, milk, and meat. Grow fruits and vegetables in the rich soil and preserve the bounty for use throughout the year. Whether you’re a year-round or part-time resident, or just come to visit, you undoubtably plan to spend some time getting in tune with nature. With thousands of acres of public land, most of which are open to hunting, fishing, bird watching, and exploring, you’ll feel that true connection in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom.

find your balance

To create a good life, it’s important to have a healthy balance between work and play. In the Northeast Kingdom, we have the ideal “backyard” that offers a myriad of opportunities for playing. Jay Peak and Burke Mountain are your destination for downhill skiing, snowboarding, and more. No matter your biking experience, the perfect trail can be found among the Kingdom Trails, Lamoille Valley Rail Trail, and the Newport Bike Path. Prefer a little more horsepower? Jump on your ride and get out on the ATV or snowmobile trails — there’s a reason Island Pond is known as the Snowmobile Capital of Vermont. With more than 40 lakes and ponds scattered throughout the NEK, there’s no shortage of options for boating, paddling, swimming, scuba diving, and even sailing. Saddle up for a horseback ride or get your adrenaline pumping as you climb up the side of a cliff. Get back to work and discuss business as your play 18 holes at one of the area’s golf courses. There’s no rule that says your work/play balance has to be 50/50.
