January 31 is Vermont’s Free Ice Fishing Day

./photos/2015/2015_icefishingBlurb.jpg

Always wanted to go ice fishing but couldn’t find a good excuse to get away? The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department has found that excuse for you: a “free ice fishing day” on the last Saturday in January.

Saturday, January 31, 2015 is Vermont’s free ice fishing day – a day when anyone, resident or nonresident, may go fishing without a fishing license. The department worked with the Legislature to create a free ice fishing day to encourage individuals, friends and families to get out and try one of the most popular fishing methods enjoyed in Vermont.
