Lake Sports
& Activities

Family fishing means even two-year-olds can catch a fish at The Tyler Place Family Resort. When “Nature Dave” heads out on Lake Champlain with families, everyone comes home with a fish! We’re not sure how he does it, but we do know that It’s a great opportunity to learn and experience Vermont wildlife. Kids, parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents love fishing off Old Stone Dock or from rowboats for longer than we can remember. 

Banana Boating, Sailing,
Water-Skiing, & More!

Don’t miss the opportunity to take your family out for any of the amazing water sports our boat dock offers. Head out on a Hobie Cat sailboat and pass the wisdom of sailing along to your kids or utilize our paddleboards and kayaks. Don’t miss our biggest waterfront attraction the lake trampoline a great activity for the whole family! Sign up for a time slot for one of our many water sports – read more about them on our Waterfront page.

World-Class Bass and Northern
Pike fishing on Lake Champlain

Serious fishing enthusiasts are happy to find some of the best fishing for Small and Large Mouth Bass and Northern Pike in the country right here in Lake Champlain. There is no charge for boats, but there is a nominal charge for motors. (The oars are on us; the gas is on you.) You can purchase Vermont fishing licenses (kids under 14 don’t need one) at Martin’s Store right near the Tyler Place.

Whether you’re a budding or expert enthusiast, be sure to talk to local fishing guide Gil Gagne about his guided trips. You’ll come home with fish and stories, too!

“It’s the best lake in the country. It’s a 50-50 lake.  You go down one bank and catch 50 largemouths, and then go out little deeper down the same bank and catch 50 smallmouths.” 

Michael Loconelli, Bassmaster Classic Champion & BASS Angler of the Year

“The lake is as good – if not better – than any place I’ve ever fished.  This has got to be one of the best bass lakes in the country.” 

Mark Davis, Bassmaster Classic Champion & three time BASS Angler of the Year
