Normally, you need a permit to fish Vermont’s waters. But on one day each year, the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department casts its net into uncharted territory, allowing anyone to pick up a bucket of worms and hit the lake — no permit required. To expand the fun, the state agency is throwing a party at the Ed Weed Fish Culture Station in Grand Isle. Kids learn how to cast a line and other fishing basics, and even get a chance to catch trout in the hatchery pond.
