Grand Isle Family Fishing Festival | Ed Weed Fish Culture Station | Kids | Seven Days | Vermont's Independent Voice


Grand Isle Family Fishing Festival

When: Sat., June 11, 9 a.m.-3 p.m. 2016

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.

Price: Free.
