Anyone fished the Battenkill recently? Know anyone who guides the river and/or have any suggestions?

Heading to the Manchester area for the first time this weekend.

One of the toughest rivers in the east. Picky trout that have been fished over hard. It can be very frustrating. You'll need fine tippets, long leaders and flawless casts. I fished it hard one week a couple of years ago with little success. I'm a pretty good caster but The fish in the streatches below Manchester are tough. I got some help at a major flyfishing retailer there and approached it with pretty good info.
BTW- they have a tent sale on now and have some great deals on Reddington reels and other goodies.
