Vermont's Daily Limits on Brook Trout
0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,000!
Vermont's general regulation for trout in rivers and streams allows anglers to harvest up to 12 trout a day, only six of which can be nonnative browns or rainbows, but all 12 of which can be native brook trout. The 12-fish limit on brook trout in Vermont is more than double that of other Northern New England states, and 33% or more higher than all other states in New England, the Northeast, the Mid-Atlantic and the Southeast.
