Don't Let The Cold Keep You Indoors
Ice fishing gives the angler a unique advantage during the hard-water season; once there is six inches or more of ice, you can easily and safely move off-shore without a boat. With many of Vermont's waters open for ice fishing season, the choices are abundant.
Whether you're fishing a Lake Champlain bay, or a smaller body of water that is found off the beaten path, ice fishing is a fun way to enjoy the outdoors during the cold winter months.
Remember, staying safe will make your next ice fishing trip more fun. It is always a good idea to review some ice fishing basics, put together by our friends at Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department.
Take advantage of a free chance to try this thrilling sport by participating in this year's Free Ice Fishing Day Festival, which will take place at Knight Point State Park in North Hero. Event information including schedule, registration, and directions can be found by visiting the Vermont Fish & Wildlife website.
