Fish with a Warden

state game warden with a young anglerTrying to figure out Vermont fishing regulations? Wondering what kinds of fish are in a lake? Looking for new fishing tips?  Our new Fish with a Warden sessions will give you the opportunity to go fishing with Fish & Wildlife Department personnel and have your questions answered. 

These informal Q&A sessions will begin at water’s edge with an overview on the ecology of the lake and its fishing regulations as well as the species of fish present and how to find them. Participants will be able to ask questions and then spread out to go fishing. 

  • Each session will last an hour or more. You need to bring your own fishing equipment.
  • Face masks, social distancing and fishing licenses are required. 
  • Pre-Registration is required (limited to 25 people per session).
