Saturday, June 9, is Vermont’s Free Fishing Day -- the one day in the year when residents and nonresidents may go fishing without a fishing license. It's a great opportunity to take the family fishing and create memories to last a lifetime.
Vermont has 284 lakes and over 7,000 miles of clear streams offering the greatest variety of high quality fresh water fishing in the Northeast, according to the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department. Finding a place to fish in Vermont is easy, but the department also hosts a special event especially for kids on Free Fishing Day in Grand Isle.
The “Grand Isle Fishing Festival” will be held from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on the 9th at the Ed Weed Fish Culture Station in Grand Isle. Designed for young anglers, this free event offers basic fishing instruction and the chance for kids to catch big trout in a pond next to the hatchery.
To find out more about Vermont's great fishing opportunities and to plan your fishing trip, contact the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department (Tel. 802-241-3700) and ask for a copy of their “Hunting, Fishing & Trapping Laws and Guide.” You can also email them at firstname.lastname@example.org or discover more from their website (www.vtfishandwildlife.com).
