Introduction to Bullhead Fishing

Check out this series of introductory bullhead fishing clinics. Each program will explore different fishing styles used to target bullhead, which are found in many of the shallower lakes, ponds and rivers of Vermont. 

Brown Bullhead, like other species in the catfish family are nocturnal bottom feeders, so the programs will take place in the evening. Equipment will be provided, but participants are encouraged to bring their own rods, flashlight or headlamp.  

Pre-registration is required. Space is limited to 25 and seminars fill up quickly, so sign up early.
