Reel Fun Fishing Program Makes a Splash in Vermont State Parks


Vermont State Parks and the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department are teaming up this season to promote and enhance fishing opportunities for campers and visitors at state parks across Vermont through the recently created "Reel Fun" program.


This exciting new program will encourage park visitors to take advantage of the diverse, easily accessible and family-friendly fishing opportunities that exist in most Vermont State Parks.


The following state parks will be participating in the "Reel Fun" initiative in 2015: Grand Isle State Park on Lake Champlain, Lake Carmi State Park, Stillwater State Park on Groton Lake, Branbury State Park on Lake Dunmore, Silver Lake State Park, Wilgus State Park on the Connecticut River, Half Moon State Park on Half Moon Pond, Lake St. Catherine State Park, Woodford State Park on Adams Reservoir and Brighton State Park on Spectacle Pond.






Vermont's Free Fishing Day is Saturday, June 13


The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department would like to remind the public that Vermont's annual, statewide Summer Free Fishing Day is set to take place on Saturday, June 13 and will be highlighted by a free Family Fishing Festival in Grand Isle.


The "Grand Isle Family Fishing Festival" will be held from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Free Fishing Day at the Ed Weed Fish Culture Station located at 14 Bell Hill Road in Grand Isle.


Designed for young anglers and families, this exciting event offers basic fishing instruction and the chance for kids to catch big trout in the hatchery pond.  No prior fishing experience is needed and Vermont Fish & Wildlife will be supplying fishing rods, reels and bait for use by participants.




Families have the option to pre-register online for the festival by clicking here... or sign in on the day of the event. Anyone with questions about the festival can contact Kristi Roche at 802-372-3171.
