Public hearings on fishing regulation changes

MONTPELIER, Vt. – The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Board continues to hold public hearings in January on proposed changes to fishing regulations.

Proposed changes in the baitfish regulation would simplify some parts of it and establish it as separate from the general regulation on fishing.

Jobs Pond in Westmore and Martins Pond in Peacham would be added to the list of waters with a two-trout daily limit. A section of the Lamoille River downstream of Johnson with a two-trout daily limit and 16-inch minimum length would be returned to the general fishing regulations.

Public hearings begin at 6 p.m. as follows:

  • Jan. 14 – Rutland High School, 22 Stratton Rd., Rutland
  • Jan. 15 – Lake Region Union High School, 317 Lake Region Rd., Orleans
  • Jan. 16 – Montpelier High School, 5 High School Dr., Montpelier
