    Proposed fishing rule changes

    MONTPELIER — The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Board is considering regulation changes that would increase trout and bass fishing opportunities for anglers and reduce the daily brook trout limit.

    Eleven new river sections are proposed to have catch-and-release trout fishing with artificial flies or lures outside of the normal trout fishing season, opening 27 miles of river to year-round trout fishing.

    A section of the Walloomsac River in Bennington is proposed to be added to the selection of trophy trout streams that are stocked with two-year old brown or rainbow trout.

    Bass catch-and-release open water angling (not ice fishing) outside the normal bass season is proposed to now include all lakes, ponds and reservoirs not listed as “seasonally closed waters.”

    The daily creel limit for brook trout is proposed to be reduced from 12 to 6.

    “The department wants to provide additional time on the water for anglers, and most of these fishing regulation changes are intended to provide increased angling opportunities where possible without impacts to the resource,” said Fish & Wildlife Commissioner Patrick Berry.

    “Reducing the daily limit on brook trout is a change advocated by many anglers and reflects the high value of Vermont’s most popular sport fish,” said Berry. “Even with the reduced creel limit, Vermont would still allow anglers to keep more trout than other states in the northeast, providing plenty of opportunity for anglers to harvest brook trout for a delicious meal.”

    The fish regulation, with the proposed changes, can be seen on vtfishandwildlife.com. Under “Law Enforcement and Game Wardens,” click on “Rules and Proposed Rules.”

    Three public hearings will be held by the board beginning at 6:30 p.m. in the following locations:

    Tuesday, May 28, at St. Johnsbury Elementary School, School Auditorium, 257 Western Ave.

    Wednesday, May 29, at Pavilion Auditorium, Pavilion Building, 109 State Street, Montpelier.

    Thursday, May 30, at Kehoe Education Center, 636 Point of Pines Road, Castleton.

    Be tick smart

    BARRE — The Vermont Department of Health is joining Green Up Vermont to spread a simple message about how to prevent tick-borne illnesses such as Lyme disease. On Saturday, May 4, over 15,000 volunteers across the state will be foraging for the trash that reveals itself when the snow melts. More than 40,000 green garbage bags will be filled with the litter that volunteers find lodged along roadsides and in tall grass or brushy areas, which is right where the ticks live.

    Be tick smart on Green Up Day, and follow three easy steps to keep yourself, children and pets safe.

    Wear long pants and tuck them into socks.

    Apply insect repellant with up to 30 percent DEET.

    Apply permethrin to gear and clothes.

    Check yourself for ticks from head to toe.

    Shower as soon as you get home.

    Adults check children and pets for ticks.

    Detach ticks as soon as possible.

    Use tweezers and pull straight up to remove.

    Wash clothes immediately and dry on high heat for an hour.

    For more information about tick-borne illness check the Health Department website at: http://healthvermont.gov/prevent/zoonotic/tickborne/Tickborne_diseases.aspx
