New in 2020 – we now have in-house guide services for you!

Your guides: US Coast Guard Master Captains Dave Morrissette and Tim Aldrich

Great fishing with Anchorage Angling Adventures!

 Merchant mariner #8403318-Dave Morrissette was introduced to Lake Champlain and the Champlain Islands in the late 90’s. Frequent fishing trips and many bass tournaments led to a lifetime dream of living on this fantastic fishery. Twenty years later, Dave is fulfilling his dream. In 2017, Dave and his wife, Melissa, purchased the Anchorage (the first place he stayed at in the 90’s), a cabin rental business tucked within Paradise Bay. Now, with the completion of his USCG Master Captain license, Dave is excited to share his knowledge of this great fishery with others. Come take a guided tour with him on his 2020 Skeeter WX2060 powered by a Yamaha SHO 250 while staying at the Anchorage, your only full-service fishing camp in the Lake Champlain Islands.

 Merchant Mariner #8393422-Tim developed his deep passion for fishing early in life. Under the guidance of his father, he grew up with a rod in his hand, trout fishing the local streams and lakes of western MA, as well as the Quabbin Reservoir. Opening day of fishing season always meant a day off from school and the thrill of catching a big one. But once he discovered the excitement of bass fishing at the Quabbin in the early ’80s, there was no turning back. He began tournament fishing in MA, VT and NH in the late ’80s, and was introduced to the Champlain waters in the late ’90s. For many years, Tim has competed in the Champlain Bass Series, the FLW Costas Series, the Bassmaster’s Open Series, and the LCI Bass Open. In 2013, he was the proud winner of the BFL Event on Champlain. He will charter his Anchorage Angling Adventures trips on his 2016 Basscat Cougar FTD powered by a Mercury 250 ProXS. His hobbies include building custom rods, making lures, and ending each trip with a lunker. Contact Captain Tim 413-427-7182
