|2015 Ice Fishing Angler Survey Results and Comparison to Earlier Surveys Ice Angler Survey Presentation
Presentation by Bernie Pientka, Fisheries Biologist, Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife
February 9, 2016, 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. – Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife Office, 111 West Street, Essex Junction, VT; and February 11, 2016, 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. – Missisquoi National Wildlife Refuge
During the winter of 2015 the Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife undertook an ice fishing angler survey, focusing on eight areas of Northern Lake Champlain. The areas included: East and West sides of Missisquoi Bay, Tabor Point, Maquam Shore, Dillenbeck Bay, Carry Bay, LaMotte Passage and Kelly Bay. The survey had four primary purposes: 1) estimate angling effort in each area, 2) estimate catch and harvest for most fish species, 3) collect biological information such as length and weight on the fish harvested by anglers, and 4) compare these results to earlier surveys. The presentation will review the survey and present the results for the different areas. Additionally we will compare the 2015 results to earlier surveys. Any questions, please contact Bernie Pientka, 802-879-5698 or firstname.lastname@example.org
