Eastern View Outfitters

Eastern View Outfitters runs professional Lake Champlain fishing and bowfishing charters in Upstate New York. Experience the historic Lake Champlain with a guide who knows what they are talking about. Get ready for a trip to remember!

You will be fishing aboard a comfortable Polar Craft Outlander boat that, at 21 ft, has room for up to four people plus the guide. Built in 2015, the boat features all the most up to date electronics and equipment to put you on the fish. Reel in a keeper with Guide Series rods and reels, aided and abetted by the boat’s Hummingbird electronics and Minn Kota trolling motor.

During your trip, you will be able to explore some of the most productive waters of the Northeast Region, getting to the very best Lake Champlain fishing spots where huge Lake Trout, Atlantic Salmon, and Brown Trout feed. Otherwise, you can fish the warmer waters of the lake and its tributaries for Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass, Walleye, Pike, and Pickerel.

Want to try something different? Combine fishing with hunting on a bowfishing charter. This technique allows you to pinpoint your target and take aim, making for a very hands on and enjoyable fishing experience. Your experienced guide has been bowfishing on Lake Champlain for the last 20 years, and knows the best areas and techniques for an enjoyable time on the water. Whether this is your first time or you are a pro, this is not an experience you should pass up.

Eastern View Outfitters promises to go the extra mile, every time. They arrange a pick up regularly on both sides of the lake – North Hero, South Hero, VT Island areas, and at the Burlington, VT Waterfront.
Fish with them and enjoy a trip to remember!
