Vermont’s Walleye Fishing Starts May 3

Posted April 17, 2014 By NewsEngine

The best walleye fishing in New England will begin soon in several Vermont rivers and lakes, according to the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department. The department is reminding anglers that walleye fishing season starts in much of the state on the first Saturday in May and that regulations vary, depending on the water you are fishing.

In all waters of Vermont except Lake Carmi, Chittenden Reservoir and the Connecticut River, walleye and sauger have an 18” minimum length requirement and three-fish daily limit. The open season is from Saturday, May 3 to March 15, 2015.

Lake Carmi has a slot limit for walleye because of the lake’s high productivity and high rate of walleye harvest. The minimum length is 15 inches, all walleye between 17 and 19 inches must be released. The daily limit is five walleye, but only one may be over 19 inches long. The season is open May 3 through March 15.

WINDSOR, IL – Youth 16 and under can experience a variety of outdoors activities and compete for “Top Gun” honors at the annual “Links to the Future Youth Festival” at Wolf Creek State Park on Lake Shelbyville on Saturday, May 17.

The festival, in its 13th year, features archery, fishing, trap shooting, slingshot shooting, and other skills competitions. Expert instruction is also presented on hunting, trapping, habitat enhancement, wildlife conservation, and outdoors recreation safety. Activities are scheduled from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m.

“The Links to Future Festival is just that – a way for those of us who enjoy the outdoors to provide a link to the next generation – youth who might be interested in having fun outdoors,” said Richard Glazebrook, site superintendent at Wolf Creek State Park and Eagle Creek State Recreation Area. “Kids interested in outdoor recreation sometimes don’t have a chance to experience fishing, archery, and trap shooting. This festival links central Illinois youth to activities they can enjoy for a lifetime.”
