Vermont anglers and boaters are getting access to two new places in the state’s waterways.
The Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife recently acquired fishing access in South Hero, on Lake Champlain, and on Maidstone Lake in the Northeast Kingdom.
The South Hero access is on the island’s eastern side and it will enable boaters to reach the Inland Sea section of Lake Champlain as well as the mouth of the Lamoille River. It will serve anglers and boaters, as well as duck hunters.
The Maidstone Lake Access Area was part of a donation. The department had been leasing the land has now ensured public access in perpetuity.
There are more than 170 developed fishing access areas across the state.
