Trying to figure out Vermont fishing regulations? Wondering what kinds of fish are in a lake? Looking for new fishing tips? The Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department is offering “Fish with a Warden” sessions to help with questions like these.

“We know many anglers have questions they would like to ask a warden, and we know many of our wardens also like to go fishing,” said Education Specialist Corey Hart, “so our Vermont state game wardens have teamed up with the Forests, Parks and Recreation staff to offer “Fish with a Warden” sessions at state parks across Vermont this summer.

Hart says the purpose of the sessions is to provide an opportunity for the public to go fishing with Fish and Wildlife Department personnel and have their questions answered. These programs are the perfect stepping stone for new anglers who would benefit from a mentored fishing outing before heading out and fishing on their own.

The “Fish with a Warden” sessions will last an hour or more. Participants need to bring their own fishing equipment. The state park day use fee has been waived for the duration of the program for participants who have registered in advance. 

A list of dates, times, and locations for the sessions and pre-registration for up to 30 people for each session are available here, and in the list of upcoming Events on the right side of the home page.
