ADDISON, Vt. – The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department’s “Let’s Go Fishing Program” is offering an introduction to bullhead fishing clinic at the Dead Creek Wildlife Management Area in Addison on Friday, April 13.

Bullhead typically are most active during the evening and night, so the clinic will begin at 6:30 p.m. and end at 9 p.m.

This introductory course will include basic techniques for targeting bullhead with live bait, casting basics, knot tying, filleting, aquatic ecology, and biology.

“There are many unique types of fish in Vermont and understanding their natural history and a few specialized techniques can help anglers be successful with species they may have never considered fishing for before,” said Corey Hart, F&W Education Specialist. “Be sure to bring a headlamp or flashlight and dress for the weather. Fishing equipment will be provided, but participants may prefer to bring their own.”
