A fishy fight over Berlin Pond

Times Argus - 1:16 pm Thu Apr 1st, 2010

After spending the winter thumbing his nose at Montpelier's self-proclaimed ability to regulate the recreational use of Berlin Pond, a Barre man has decided to give the Capital City a good, old-fashioned thumb in the eye.

A frequent fisherman at Berlin Pond this winter, Rick Barnett said Monday he plans to host a state-sanctioned fishing derby on Montpelier's public drinking water supply later this month.

"I have a legally obtained ice fishing derby permit," Barnett said, explaining he recently filled out the requisite forms, paid the $50 fee and received a permit for the March 28 event that is now listed on the Web site for the state Department of Fish & Wildlife.
