Training workshop set for September 22 - The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department is seeking volunteers to become Let’s Go Fishing instructors to pass on Vermont’s fishing tradition to the next generation of Vermonters.
Vermont is often recognized for having some of the best freshwater fishing in the Northeast. The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department says one of the best ways to learn about the state’s fishing opportunities is to check out the 2018 Vermont Fishing Guide & Regulations available free from its district offices and license agents throughout the state.
The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department responded quickly to an angler report of an unusual fish in his bait bucket and cited a Vermont baitfish wholesaler for illegally importing unapproved fish species into the state.
Drew Price of Colchester, VT, has completed the state’s first-ever ‘Master Angler Sweep’ by catching at least one trophy-sized specimen of all 33 eligible fish species that are part of the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department’s Master Angler Program.
Three state parks are working with the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department to offer free Let’s Go Fishing clinics on a weekly basis this summer. Lake Bomoseen, Lake St. Catherine, and Boulder Beach State Parks will be offering these free clinics.
