Smallmouth, Largemouth, and Striped Bass. The Mass Bass Grand Slam on the fly.
After arriving in Boston, we will venture west to the Berkshires. Tucked along the Appalachian Mountains, the Berkshires are home to countless lakes and ponds, hundreds of miles of streams, and the headwaters of the Housatonic River. The fishing kicks off with some action-packed smallmouth fishing mixed with the chance for an enormous pike. The combination of wade-fishing and time in canoes provides a good mix of opportunities for some trophy smallmouth and a chance for an aggressive pike. It will also help prepare us for our backcountry canoe trip to a hidden lake full of largemouth bass and pickerel. Then, with two bass species under our belts, we will head to the Cape, searching for some striped bass on the flats to complete the Mass Bass Grand Slam. Our final adventure will bring us to the North Shore. The following day, three of the best captains in MA will pick us up right from our campground for a day spent fly and light tackle fishing for massive stripers. Cap it all off with a final banquet dinner before everyone heads home from Boston the next day.

After reading the reviews of Lillard, we decided to take a chance and send our son for 2 weeks. Turned out to be one of the best summer experiences he's ever had, one he will remember forever. The 15 boys bonded while fishing, hiking, learning, and working. Great guides and a unique program reinforced his love of the great outdoors and fishing. He is looking forward to another Lillard adventure next summer!
