Vermont Fishing Areas

Vermont offers a wide range of angling opportunities for both novice and experienced anglers. Some of the most popular destinations for fishing in the state include Lake Champlain, the Connecticut River, and the smaller streams and rivers throughout the Green Mountains.

The state is home to a variety of fish species, including trout (rainbow, brown, and brook), bass (largemouth and smallmouth), pike, walleye, and panfish. The best time to fish in Vermont varies depending on the species you're targeting, but generally, the spring and fall offer the most productive fishing.

Spring temperatures in Vermont average around 50-60°F, while fall temperatures range from 40-50°F. For trout, the best time to fish is during the spring and early summer, while bass and pike are most active during the late spring and early fall.

Recommended baits and lures for fishing in Vermont include worms, minnows, and artificial lures such as spinners and jigs. Fly fishing is also popular in the state, with many anglers using mayfly imitations to target trout.

Interesting fishing facts about Vermont include the fact that the state record for the largest fish caught is a 38-pound lake trout caught in Lake Champlain, and that Vermont was the first state in the US to establish catch-and-release regulations for trout fishing. The state also offers free fishing days each year, allowing anglers to fish without a license for a day.
