6/14/20 Update

Fishing has been really good this spring and we are making the swing into summer fishing. Smallmouth and pike fishing is starting to pick up! Dates are starting to fill up so reach out soon! We are just as bummed as many of you with the 2020 seasons of Tanglewood, Jacob’s Pillow, Kripalu, etc. being closed. With many arts and leisure businesses closed in the Berkshires and Hudson Valley, we know many of you are looking for things to do and are eager to explore the outdoors. We wanted you all to know that we are open and running trips daily. If you are looking to fish or maybe just looking for a lazy scenic float down the river, let Berkshire Rivers Fly Fishing outfit you! We offer 2-hour, 4-hour, and full-day trips. All of our trips are private and include everything you would need. Let us help make 2020 the year of great memories and not one of looking for something to do.
