One of the best places to fish for brook trout are beaver ponds. A good beaver pond can hold Vermont's favorite fish in numbers and sizes rarely seen in streams, and a hidden beaver pond teeming with plump, colorful brookies is a treasured discovery. We head out with John Mansfield and Mike Eramo, both of Grandville, VT to learn why they love fishing for beaver pond brookies.
It wasn’t that long ago that Lake Champlain was known for its fantastic walleye fishery. Whether it was overfishing or environmental impacts, the abundance of the number one game fish diminished tremendously during the 70’s. In 1984 the Lake Champlain Walleye Association was formed by a concerned group of anglers who had one goal in mind. And that was to bring back the walleye. Together with the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department the two organizations are making progress to restore the once famous walleye fishery back to its hey day.
Since eastern coyotes first arrived in Vermont in the 1940s, they have steadily expanded until today they are found in almost every corner of every town in the state. Hated for preying on deer, pets and livestock, and generally treated like vermin, coyotes have also proven to be remarkably adaptable and resilient, and they have slowly gained the respect of many Vermonters, including a small but growing corps of dedicated coyote hunters.
Traditionally hunters share their bounty at suppers at local town halls and churches. But the Vermont Wild Game Supper is staking out new territory in an upscale hotel asking attendees if their game to give it a try. We attended the supper at the Hotel Vermont in downtown Burlington and from our perspective it was a huge success.
The sounds of campfire songs can be heard echoing over Buck Lake in Woodbury all summer long from adolescents attending the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department’s Conservation Camp. But one week of the summer is reserved just for teachers. Since 1985 the Wildlife Course for Teachers has offered educators a hands-on introduction to fish and wildlife management. The goal is to get educators to incorporate what they learn at camp into their classroom curriculum.
Vermont PBS educates, informs, entertains and inspires Vermonters to be lifelong learners and engaged in their community.
