Vermont seeking 'Let's go Fishing' volunteers to teach people about ecology and fishing


MONTPELIER, Vermont — The Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife is seeking volunteer instructors for its "Let's Go Fishing" program.

The instructors organize and volunteer at fishing clinics in their communities to teach young people and their families about water ecology while instilling the life-long skill of fishing.

Fish and Wildlife and Lake Champlain International are offering instructor training for volunteers on March 28 at the Kehoe Education Center in Castleton and on April 11 at Fish and Wildlife's regional office in Essex Junction.

Participants will learn what it takes to teach a clinic about fishing techniques, ethics, aquatic ecology and management, the importance of habitat conservation, and tackle craft.

It is not necessary to have a high level of fishing expertise to become an instructor.
