Happy New Year from Vermont! Before we know it opening day will be here, and winter will be a distant memory. Until then two things: 1. Don't forget to get your 2015 license, there is a link to VT Fish and Wildlife website in the guided fishing trip info page. 2. There are waters that are open to catch and release fishing if you just can't resist the temptation to give it a go. In our area the Winooski is open below Bolton Dam all the way to the lake, you can get into steelhead and maybe a few salmon are still kicking around. There are a handful of other Champlain Tributaries open year round that have a steelhead run as well. Make sure you consult the 2015 rules and regulations before hitting any water.
For some reason the blog posts below are in the wrong order, so I guess read to the bottom if you want to get to the newer posts.
