A group of like-minded fishermen & women with the mission of promoting the sport of fly-fishing, sharing experiences, and improving our ecosystems for all.

          Our Mission Statement:

  • To improve the fishery of the New Haven River and nearby watersheds in central Vermont including but not limited to Otter Creek, Middlebury River, Neshobe River and Lewis Creek.

  • To promote and practice responsible fishing and conservation that protects and preserves those rivers and adjoining watersheds' trout populations.

  • To promote the sport of angling and introduce others to the sport and the obligations associated with being a responsible angler.

  • To advocate for clean and pollution free watersheds through responsible recreational and conservation practices, public education, practicing sound scientifically based programs and cooperation with local, state and federal environmental authorities.

We Started Our Seasons Meetings with a Picnic !

We had a great time. Steve Dokus won the TFO rod. See Photos in the Photo Gallery.


Addison County provides some phenomenal fishing opportunities, all within a few minutes of Middlebury. Whether you prefer vibrant trout, toothy pike, or acrobatic bass, your options are endless.


The New Haven Angling Association holds many events throughout the year, ranging from introductory fly fishing, to youth-day, to casting demos, fly-tying nights as well as the tremendously fun and rewarding river restoration projects. See what's going on and join us!


Like fish? Or more broadly, do you like nature? The NHRAA does a lot of amazing work in this community and beyond, and relies on the support of individuals to help achieve our mission of improving the fisheries, environment, and community of fishing in Addison County.
