Vermont Allows Some Non-Resident Anglers to Return

Some good news for our non-resident angling friends who have been waiting patiently (or chomping at the bit) to come share in the great fishing opportunities we have around the state. Things are starting to open up.

Governor Scott’s latest guidelines now allow residents of counties in New England and New York with a similar active COVID-19 case load (less than 400 active cases per one million residents) to travel to Vermont for recreational purposes without having to quarantine.

If you’re from NY or a New England state, and want to know what your county case load is, the State of Vermont has created an easy to use map. Drag the map or zoom out to see more of the region and be sure to review the other guidance on the Cross State Travel Information page. We also continue to provide current updates on the department’s Outdoor Recreation and COVID-19 webpage.

Finally, all out-of-state travelers are strongly encouraged to register with Sara Alert upon arrival to Vermont. By doing so, you will receive two weeks of daily reminders to check for common symptoms of COVID-19.
