Walleye fishing is about to begin in several Vermont rivers and lakes, according to the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department. The department is reminding anglers that walleye fishing season starts in much of the state on May 7th, and that regulations vary, depending on the water you are fishing.
Excellent walleye fishing opportunities occur each spring in Lake Carmi, Chittenden Reservoir, the Connecticut River, Lake Champlain and its tributaries: the Missisquoi River, Lamoille River, Winooski River, and Otter Creek.
The Northeast region also offers walleye fishing opportunities in Salem Lake, Island Pond, Clyde Pond, and the Clyde River. Vermont’s state record walleye weighed 14.55 lbs. and was caught in Lake Champlain by Richard Levesque of Swanton in 2010.
