The Battenkill Lodge owns two miles of water on the New York Battenkill Trophy area. Easy access is provided for our guests. These waters contain wild Brook and Brown trout with no hatchery stocking. Fishing with artificials is the only method permitted, Each day, the abundant insect hatches promise opportunities to fish multiple rises.
A short drive takes our guests to the Hoosic River. The lodge presently owns and maintains over three miles of river frontage, most of which is double bank. The upper part of this water is fed by the Walloornsac River. This cold water tributary provides the main Hoosic with most of its' wild Rainbows and Browns. As with all of our property, there is full driving access with easy entrance to all pools. Each beat has tables for tackle preparation or a riverside lunch. The Hoosic is isolated and private and therefore has minimal angling pressure. Brown trout to twenty four inches, and Rainbows to twenty inches are taken regularly. Thus we call this area "Jurassic Park".
Additionally, Battenkill Lodge also owns a half mile of the Owlkill River, another Hoosic tributary. Recent improvements to our double bank section have created excellent holding pools, perfect for afternoon fishing, with its shaded runs and riffles. Many Brook Trout are also taken in this water.
