The “Let’s Go Fishing” Program is a network of volunteer instructors who encourage and teach young people and their families how to fish.

BECOME A VOLUNTEER

Volunteers are needed to expand the Let’s Go Fishing Program to all areas of the state. Two options are available:

  • Certified Instructors – You will complete a six hour training program and learn the basics of hosting your own Let’s Go Fishing event. 

    The department is hosting a one-day training workshop for new instructors on Sunday, April 22, at the Fish & Wildlife office, 111 West Street, Essex Junction, VT 05452.
    The workshop runs from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
    Email letsgofishing@vermont.gov or call 802-265-2279 to register. You must be 18 to participate.

  • Instructor Assistants – You help certified instructors with the clinics by teaching parts of the clinic or helping to keep the event running smoothly.

FOR TEACHERS - BRING IT TO YOUR CLASSROOM

The Let’s Go Fishing Program is a great addition to any classroom. It is useful for teaching:

  • math

  • reading
  • physical education

Special training is available to guide teachers through the curriculum, and show you how to use it effectively.
