A Vermont Landlocked Salmon

It’s an annual fishing event that has been going on for centuries and probably longer. The Rainbow Trout and Salmon fight their way upstream, jumping the rapids of the Willoughby River to arrive at their destination – the deep cold waters of Lake Willoughby. This is called the Rainbow Run. Fishermen come from miles around to line the shores and wade in the waters of the Willoughby River in hopes of landing a hungry Rainbow Trout or Landlocked Salmon.  The fish battle the currents to make their way upstream to Lake Willoughby. This amazing natural event happens every spring and lasts from a few days to a few weeks.
