Swift River Guided Fly Fishing

The Swift River in Belchertown, MA is a unique tailwater- small in size but huge in stature, it offers year-round fishing due to its bottom release water. The upper section by the dam is incredibly technical- however I like to float its lower section which offers excellent opportunities for wild trout as well as stocked fish. This river never gets blown out by rain due to its lack of tributaries, making it an ace in the hole when other rivers are at flood stage. There are some huge fish in there too!
