The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department (VFWD) recently released an online fishing regulations tool, intended to provide anglers with quick and simple access to regulations and other information.
Interactive Map System – lets users select any waterbody in the state and have instantaneous access to fishing regulations specific to that body of water.
Current Location Feature – the map also works in coordination with the Global Positioning System (GPS) in many mobile devices, allowing users to view fisheries regulations for their current location.
Lookup Tables – allows users to view regulations by selecting a water body, town, or county from a comprehensive lookup list.
The Online Fishing Regulation Tool is the first of several steps the department is taking to help anglers more easily sort through and understand fishing regulations.
According to VFWD, the agency is planning to develop a mobile fishing regulations application that will work in areas without internet access, and add more fishing-related information to the mapping platform to expand its uses beyond providing fisheries regulations alone.
