    MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) Vermont anglers are going to have a number of new fishing opportunities in the new year.

    Fish and Wildlife Commissioner Patrick Berry says a series of new fishing regulations will greatly expand angling opportunities and help promote open-water fishing.

    The new regulations will give opportunities for year-round fishing.

    The department says 11 new river sections will have catch-and-release trout fishing with artificial flies or lures outside of the normal trout fishing season, opening more than 70 miles of river to year-round trout fishing.

    In addition, open water catch-and-release bass fishing will be possible for all lakes, ponds and reservoirs not listed as "seasonally closed waters." The rule does not apply to ice fishing.

    Details of the new regulations are available on the department's website.
