Fishing regulations are important tools for managing Vermont's diverse fisheries and meeting the varied desires of the angling public. Our Online Fishing Regulations Tool uses current technologies to make obtaining regulation information quick and simple.
Fishing Regs at Your Fingertips
This internet-based tool offers multiple functions, including:
- Interactive Map System - lets users select any waterbody in the state and have instantaneous access to fishing regulations specific to that body of water.
- Current Location Feature – the map also works in coordination with the Global Positioning System (GPS) in many mobile devices, allowing users to view fisheries regulations for their current location.
- Lookup Tables - allows users to view regulations by selecting a waterbody, town, or county from a comprehensive lookup list.
Regardless of the pathway, the final result is a simple and clear list of fisheries regulations for each waterbody.
The Online Fishing Regulation Tool is just the first of several steps the department is taking to help anglers more easily sort through and understand fishing regulations. We are planning to develop a mobile fishing regulations application that will work in areas without internet access, and add more fishing-related information to the mapping platform to expand its uses beyond providing fisheries regulations alone.
