Go fishing for free this Saturday

MONTPELIER — Vermont’s annual, statewide Summer Free Fishing Day is Saturday, June 11 this year, and it will be highlighted by a free family fishing festival in Grand Isle as well as opening day of the state’s regular bass fishing season.

The day is designed to give resident and nonresident anglers the opportunity to go fishing without a license for the day in Vermont lakes and streams and is an opportunity for an experienced

angler to be a mentor to friends who have not gone fishing before.

Vermont’s regular bass season also opens on June 11, marking the start of some of the hottest bass fishing action in the northeast. The season opens each year on the second Saturday in June and extends through the last day of November.
