The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department posted the following corrections to the 2017 Vermont Fishing Guide. They ask that anglers please note the following corrections to information previously published in the Vermont 2017 Fishing Guide & Regulations
“A person shall not buy or sell a salmon, trout, lake trout, walleye, northern pike, muskellunge or black bass taken in this state, or imported from another state or country where sale of such fish is prohibited, except such fish reared in licensed propagation farms within the state.”
This means under the current regulations, anglers may sell fish and businesses may buy fish caught in Vermont that are not listed above.
The daily limit of yellow perch is 50 for Vermont lakes, ponds, impoundments, reservoirs and particular rivers and streams. (This has been the limit for a number of years.) There is no limit on yellow perch for Lake Champlain.
Correct information is:
Ice Fishing Table: 6
Lake Area: 63 acres
Only open to fishing from 2nd Saturday April to Oct. 31
Closed to ice fishing
Information and special regulations for Great Averill Lake can be found on page 74 under Big Averill Lake.
The Department asks anglers to remember to follow any waterbody-specific regulations listed in the indexes of lakes and ponds and rivers and streams. The waterbody-specific regulation overrides the general regulations.
