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, from large lakes to off-the-beaten-path bodies of water, open for ice fishing season, the choices are abundant. Review some ice fishing basics, put together by our friends at Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department, to make sure you stay safe. Additional information on planning a Vermont fishing trip can be found through the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department or Vermont Outdoor Guides Association.
