General Fishing Report March 5, 2021
Hey all, I hope that everyone is having a safe and wonderful winter season. It's been nice to have all this snow for the snow lovers in us and plenty of ice on the lakes for the hard-water anglers. Stream fishing looks to pick up in the coming weeks with more sunlight and some warmer temps. A couple of housekeeping notes first off:
The VT fish and wildlife is again holding public hearings on the proposed Fish Management Rules, taking place online on Monday March 29 and Tuesday March 30. Check the F &W website for more details on joining these meetings. They still seem to be proposing opening most waters to year round fishing but have also modified the number of trout that can be kept in streams to 8 which can be any combination of Brook, Brown and Rainbow Trout. An annotated copy of the rule changes are also available on the F & W website.
Also the OCC 13 is happening again (mostly Virtual-- except for the actual fishing!), opening weekend April 9-11. Again, registration, rules, etc available at www.mmvt.com. This year we are donating proceeds to the White RIver...
