Otter Creek Classic
Body: 
After a long, dull winter, opening day of trout season in Vermont is welcomed with open arms by anglers across the state. While many Vermonters follow opening-day traditions that are decades old, others are starting new traditions. In 2009, a fun catch-and-release tournament was created in the Middlebury area, and for a growing number of passionate fly fishermen, the Otter Creek Classic is fast becoming an annual rite of spring.

There is nothing easy about managing our natural resources. Fortunately for Vermonter’s we have a number of experienced wildlife and fisheries biologists that are extremely dedicated to the task. One of the things that make these folks so special is that for most of them, their work is much more than just a job it’s their passion.

Overnight Ice Fishing
Body: 

Every year, thousands of people camp on the shores of Lake Champlain, but very few actually spend a night on the lake -- especially in the heart of winter. Yet that is exactly what some dedicated anglers do on Missisquoi Bay, where the ice fishing can be as hot as the weather is cold. We hit the hard water of Missisquoi Bay on Lake Champlain to enjoy some exciting ice fishing for northern pike. And experience a comfy night on the ice thanks to Gilbert Gagne of Martin’s Store in Highgate Springs where we rented our overnight accommodations. We also meet up with a group of anglers that have made spending the night on the ice an annual tradition.

Quimby Country
Body: 

Nestled deep in the vast forestland of the Northeast Kingdom is a classic northwoods camp that's been a haven for hunters, anglers, and other outdoor lovers for more than a century. Located on a quiet pond a stone's throw from Canada, Quimby Country Lodge and Cottages just might also be one of the best kept secrets in Vermont. To learn more about this historic camp, we visited for an overnight stay and some upland bird hunting.
