Vermont Fish and Wildlife to offer ‘Fish with a Warden’ sessions

CLOSE

A new program from the Vermont Fish and Wildlife service will allow anglers to learn about wildlife, fishing techniques and state regulations with a game warden this summer. 

The “Fish with a Warden” series will connect fishing enthusiasts with game wardens in scheduled question and answer sessions, which will allow a maximum of 25 participants, who will all be required to wear masks and practice social distancing. 

The sessions, “will begin at water’s edge with an overview on the ecology of the lake and its fishing regulations as well as the species of fish present and how to find them.”

“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,” Education Specialist Corey Hart said in a statement. “So our Vermont State Game Wardens and other staff have offered to hold several informal Q&A sessions at Vermont lakes from now through September.”

Sessions in July and August will take place at 6:30 p.m. at various locations, including Manchester, Colchester and Waterbury. 

Participants are required to bring their own fishing equipment, and must have a fishing license. To register for a session and learn more, read here: https://vtfishandwildlife.com/fish-with-a-warden
