Ice Fishing Vermont

Don't Let The Cold Keep You Indoors

Ice fishing gives the angler a unique advantage during the hard-water season; once there is six inches or more of ice, you can easily and safely move off-shore without a boat. With many of Vermont's waters open for ice fishing season, the choices are abundant.

Whether you're fishing a Lake Champlain bay, or a smaller body of water that is found off the beaten path, ice fishing is a fun way to enjoy the outdoors during the cold winter months.

Remember, staying safe will make your next ice fishing trip more fun. It's always a good idea to read the ice fishing safety tips, put together by our friends at Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department.
