Keep an eye on the Weather!
Because of its location between the Green Mountains of Vermont and the Adirondack Mountains of New York, winds on Lake Champlain can be quite strong. Waves frequently reach 3-4 feet. The predominate winds blow from the north and south. Strong winds can make some areas unfishable, especially on the main lake and Inland Sea.
Wind direction and strength effect fish location and activity. Knowledgeable fishermen give careful consideration to the wind direction, strength, and the predicted wave height when making their plans for the day. They also monitor the weather for several days before their trip, keeping an eye out for the weather trends that can influence bass activity.
