Game Fish Present: Primarily Brook trout, Rainbow trout, and Brown Trout
Nongame Fish Present: The White River and its tributaries are a major rearing area for Atlantic Salmon. Extreme caution should be taken not to confuse the young Atlantic Salmon with young Brown trout.
Description: Several streams flowing off the east side of the Green Mountain Range form the tributaries of the White River. Most streams are spring fed and there are several beaver ponds in the higher elevations. The White River and its tributaries have good natural trout reproduction that is supplemented by stocking by the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department.
Gear Suggestions: Fly-fishing, spinners and bait fishing are allowed on most portions of the river. Portions of the White River and its tributaries are restricted to special regulations, so consult the Vermont Fish and Wildlife.
Season and Restrictions: For a complete description of fishing regulations and license fees, visit the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department web site.
Access: Vermont Route 100 runs alongside most of the White River. There are several pull offs constructed to provide parking.
