Vermont fishing licenses help pay for fishery management efforts, habitat development and protection, fishing conservation education, and other important state programs. When you buy a fishing license and follow the VT fishing laws, you are doing your part to protect the sport of fishing for generations to come.
Fishing laws are in place to protect our fish populations. For example, if you plan to fish a Vermont stream for rainbow trout and want to take one home for dinner, you will need to know the fishing laws that outline the legal size limits, bag limits and fishing seasons. Always check the current VT fishing laws that apply to each individual species and waterway.
Your fishing license purchase helps to protect and preserve the sport of fishing for years to come. The fees collected from Vermont fishing licenses go toward fishery management, habitat development, endangered species programs, and conservation education.
