Bill Bernhardt is our Head Fly Fishing guide here at Lopstick Outfitters. Bill is an avid and enthusiastic fly fisherman and outdoorsman. He began his fly fishing journey at the age of 8 fishing the remote ponds and small streams of Northern Maine in pursuit of native Brook trout.
Bill became a registered New Hampshire in 1994. He has worked at the local Fly Shop and guided the surrounding waters of the Mount Washington Valley. Bill has also been fortunate enough to spend several winters guiding and exploring in Northern Patagonia’s Chilean Futaleufu valley. Where he became the Head Guide for the Futaleufu Lodge.
His passion for fly fishing has drawn him to the Tailwater fisheries of Pittsburg, NH. Where the cold waters and Salmon runs provide some of the best fishing in the state. He has been working for Lopstick for almost 20 years now. Bill is a devoted fly angler willing to fish for anything that swims. He is a patient and knowledgeable guide with an easy going personality. He can be found drifting the Androscoggin and Connecticut rivers as far down as Littleton, NH in search of Northern Pike.
