Guide To Fishing At Lake Memphremagog
AKA: Memphremagog Lake
Crossing the Vermont border into Quebec, Canada is Lake Memphremagog, a 5,800-acre lake on the northern border of the state, at Newport. Only about 10 of the over 40 miles of shoreline are in VT, yet there is plenty to do within the US portion of the lake.
Much of the shore within VT can be accessed for fishing from the bank, especially around Prouty Beach and throughout areas of Newport. The lake offers fishing for bass, crappie, walleye, trout, sunfish, perch, salmon and pike - conventionally during the warm months, and through the ice in winter. A concrete boat launch ramp for public use is located at Whipple Point Access Area, on the east side of the lake near the Canadian border. Kayaks, car-top boats and canoes can be portaged from several areas with parking throughout the southern part of the lake. For additional information about fishing on Lake Memphremagog, visit the VT Fish & Wildlife website.
