Fly Fishing

Father and son fly fishing at Mount Washington

Try your hand at angling the Ammonoosuc River, as it runs right through the resort, or any of a number of local rivers and streams, including some of New Hampshire’s most pristine fly-fishing destinations. New Hampshire fishing licenses may be purchased online before your visit, or at the Activities Concierge Desk in the Great Hall of Omni Mount Washington Resort. For more information, please call the Adventure Center at (603) 278-3335. Guided instruction and guided trips are available upon request.

Classic and Tenkara fly fishing clinics and equipment rentals are closed for the season. Thanks for a great summer and we look forward to seeing you next year. 

Art of Fly Casting Clinics

The Art of Fly Casting Clinic is an introduction to fly casting, beginning with a brief overview of the equipment needed to get you started. We then progress into teaching some of the basic fly casting techniques used by even the most avid angler. The group will then move to a stocked pond to catch the big one once everyone is feeling confident with his/her casting ability.

Casting clinics take place near the stocked pond beside the main driveway to the Omni Mount Washington Hotel. Guests will meet at the Activities Concierge Desk, located in the Great Hall of the Omni Mount Washington Hotel, 10 minutes prior to the lesson to pick up their equipment and meet their instructor. Fly casting clinics are restricted to ages 13 and up.
