North River

North River is a 3.4 mile long tributary feeding into Deerfield River near Shelburne Falls Massachusetts. I fell in love with this place within the first five minutes. This river is small and typically freestone in nature, but holds good sized wild brook trout in its deeper pools. Above its entrance into the Deerfield there’s a mixture of pocket water, rapids, riffles and deep pools holding rainbows, brookies and a few browns, some in the 10- to 12-inch range. All in all a wonderful place to bring a 4wt fly rod and catch trout all day.
