Fly Fishing The Androscoggin River

The Royalty Inn is located on the edge of the Androscoggin River in Gorham, NH. There is no lodging any closer to the water, making the Royalty Inn the perfect home base for your Androscoggin fishing adventure.

Picture a brawling Montana river. Snow still lingers on the mountains in the background, as large trout rise to a late evening spinner fall. But this is not the Madison or the Yellowstone, this is the Androscoggin in northern New Hampshire. This river is a great place for a full day fly fishing adventure. An Andro grand slam of: Brook trout, brown trout, rainbow trout, landlocked salmon, smallmouth bass, and Fall Fish, is not uncommon.

We fish the Andro with a variety of flies and techniques: Fishing small caddis, casting large streamers, dead drifting nymphs and fishing an evening spinner fall can all be done in one day.The Andro provides a big river fishing experience. There are sections of water that can be fished without much wading or work. This is a great river to learn more advanced streamer fishing, nymph fishing and big water dry fly fishing techniques. If you’ve had success on smaller water and want to up your angling game, the Andro is the next step.

Float fishingIf you’ve never floated a big river, you don’t know what you’ve been missing. How many times have you thought, “If only I could get to that deep pocket in the middle of the river?” Now you can. Trips will be guided out of a three person drift raft. This unique craft allows us to put in and take out of the river at locations where other guides are unable to launch their boats. Striking scenery, wild trout, peaceful isolation and perfect casting positioning are the benefits of this trip.
