Ice fishing for walleyes focus of Vermont clinic

ENOSBURG FALLS, Vt. — The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department will host a free introductory course on ice fishing for walleye in mid-January at Lake Carmi.

The clinic, which is open to the public, will run from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, January 14 at Lake Carmi State Park in Enosburg Falls.

“The course is designed to cover the basics of ice fishing — ice safety, fishing regulations, drilling holes, rigging equipment — all of the fundamentals, but will focus on tactics and techniques specific to targeting walleye through the ice,” said Corey Hart, Let’s Go Fishing coordinator with Vermont Fish & Wildlife.

The clinic will be conducted by instructors from Vermont Fish & Wildlife’s Let’s Go Fishing Program and the Lake Champlain Walleye Association.

 

All necessary equipment will be provided for the course, but participants may also bring their own tackle if desired. Participants are advised to dress warm and layer clothing in order to adjust to the conditions of the day.

Preregistration for the clinic is required and can be completed by calling 802-265-2279 or emailing letsgofishing@vermont.gov.
