Wildlife Watch: Trout anglers urged to take part in genetic strain evaluation
BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - Vermont’s trout fishing season opened earlier this month and wildlife officials are asking the public for feedback from anglers on the fish they are stocking.
Over the next two years, the department is stocking a new genetic strain of rainbow trout in 11 waterbodies to evaluate differences.
Ike Bendavid spoke with state fisheries biologist Lee Simard about the program.
