Fishing fun to reel in kids

Posted: Updated:
WATERBURY, Vt. -

More fun is in the works for kids at Vermont's lakes and rivers.

The state's Fish and Wildlife Department has released its list of spring fishing events, targeted specifically toward young people.

The department is supplying 20,000 8-to-10-inch trout to children's programs across the state. The department also has a team of trained volunteers helping kids learn to fish.

"It is great to get them engaged in an activity that is outdoors, where they can get used to being outside with their family hopefully participating in exercise, in something different than sitting in front of a TV screen all day," said Barbara Johnston of the Vt. Fish and Wildlife Department.

The kids' fishing events generally run through June. Click here for a complete list of activities.
