MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department is offering anglers a chance to fish with a game warden in order to get fishing tips or questions answered about the sport.
The department is holding “Fish with a Warden” sessions through September across the state.
"We know many anglers have questions they would like to ask a warden, and we know many of our wardens also like to go fishing,” said Education Specialist Corey Hart.
The sessions start at the shoreline with an overview of the lake ecology, fishing regulations, species of fish and how to find them, the department said. Participants will have a chance to ask questions and then the spread out to fish.
Participants must preregister, bring their own fishing equipment and have a fishing license. Facial coverings and social distancing are required to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
The events will last an hour or more and start at 6:30 p.m. in July and August and 6 p.m. in September. Pre-registration for up to 25 people and times and dates of the sessions are on the department's website.
