FISH FOR THE CATCH OF YOUR LIFE.
Fishing is a great way to escape from everyday stress--relax and enjoy the day’s catch.
Whether you fly fish Vermont’s creeks and streams, cast from a boat on Lake Champlain, or fish from shore, fishing is a slower-paced recreational activity – but that doesn’t mean it lacks excitement! The adrenaline rush you get from reeling in a fish is so exhilarating, so intoxicating, you’ll “get hooked” on the sport your first time out. For outdoor enthusiasts who enjoy experiencing nature and its resources, it’s one of the best feelings in the world.
Fishing in Vermont is a cost-effective recreational activity for the entire family. Looking to add some competitiveness to your next fishing trip? Be sure to check out the master angler program. Every year, someone new qualifies for this elite club of anglers with a fish that meets or exceeds the minimum length or weight for that particular species. This sport is all-inclusive in the way that men, women, and children all have the same chance to catch the next Vermont state record. It doesn’t matter what your gender, size, or age is; all that's needed is to make sure you have a line in the water.
