Guide To Fishing At Lake Bomoseen
AKA: Bomoseen Lake
One of the top fisheries in Vermont, Lake Bomoseen is also the largest inland lake in the state. This 2,400-acre fish factory, with about 18 miles of shoreline, is located in the west-central part of the state, at Bomoseen.
If you like variety, you'll be pleased to know there are quite a few fish species in this fertile lake, including bass, crappie, trout, sunfish and pike. Fishing enthusiasts wishing to fish from the bank, can do so at Bomoseen State Park from the beach or from the dock. Fishing equipment is available at no cost from the park office, when open. The park also has a public boat launch ramp and rental boats. Local fishing guides offer trips fishing for bass, crappie, perch and pike. The lake is loaded with aquatic vegetation which makes excellent cover for baitfish and predator as well, so there are plenty of targets in shallow water. There is a boat launch ramp at the KOA campground at the north end of the lake, one at Bomoseen State Park, and two on the south end of the lake near the Highway 4 bridge. For additional information about fishing on Lake Bomoseen, visit the VT Fish & Wildlife website.
