    MONTPELIER — Vermont anglers are going to have the opportunity to weigh in on plans to change the rules about baitfish.

    The Fish and Wildlife Board is considering regulation changes intended to minimize the risk associated with the use and movement of baitfish while providing more flexibility with the species they can use as bait.

    They will also clarify how and where they can transport baitfish.

    The primary changes to the regulation add pumpkinseed, bluegill, rock bass, and banded killifish to the statewide approved baitfish list. It will also allow alewife and white perch to be used on Lake Champlain.

    Hearings are scheduled for Oct. 22, in Newport, Oct. 23 in Bomoseen and Oct. 24 in St. Albans.

    All the hearings will be held from 6 to 8 p.m.
