Vermont’s seventh annual Free Ice Fishing Day is Saturday, Jan. 25, 2020. To celebrate, the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department is holding an Ice Fishing Festival at Elmore State Park on Lake Elmore. The festival will be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The event is free and open to all ages as well as families with kids.
Vermont Fish and Wildlife staff, as well as instructors from Vermont’s Let’s Go Fishing Program, will be on-hand to teach ice fishing skills. These include knot tying, baiting, and using an ice fishing rod, and most importantly, how to stay warm on the ice. They will also discuss fishing regulations and go over fish identification.
Fish and Wildlife staff will operate a fish fry station to cook up participants’ catch, and there will be plenty of cocoa on hand. Participants are encouraged to dress appropriately for the weather, and ice cleats are strongly recommended.
“Ice fishing is one of the most accessible forms of fishing and can be a great way to introduce people to how much fun fishing can be,” said Jud Kratzer, fisheries biologist for the Fish and Wildlife Department. “This festival will demonstrate that ice fishing isn’t just about catching fish. It’s also a great way to spend some time outdoors with friends and family. You can skate, sled, make a snow fort, and have a cookout – all while waiting for the flags on your tip-ups to signal when you’ve caught a fish.”
Fishing equipment will be loaned for this fun day on the ice or participants may bring their own. For more information, contact Corey Hart at 802-265-2279 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Registration can be completed online in advance at www.vtfishandwildlife.com/free-ice-fishing-day-festival or people may register when they arrive, although registering in advance will enable participants to get on the ice faster!
Free Ice Fishing Day is held annually on the last Saturday in January. The day is geared toward giving new ice anglers an opportunity to try ice fishing before purchasing equipment, but any angler may ice fish on any water body open to ice fishing statewide without a fishing license on Free Ice Fishing Day.

Hope on the Slopes at Jay Peak Resort is not only a fantastic day of fun on the mountain PLUS indoor activities, but also a very important opportunity for the community to come together and support cancer patients and their families with resources provided by the American Cancer Society whose mission is to eliminate cancer.
There is no experience necessary to participate. This event is great for all ages and there is no team size limit. Create a team, join one, or participate as an individual when you register at hotsjaypeak.org. During the event attendees will track their vertical feet using the an app and we will have awards for most vertical feet completed by teams, youth and individuals. Additionally, there will be prizes for top team, youth and individual fundraisers which are given out before a FREE buffet dinner with a live band.
When an individual fundraises $100 or more we will gift them a FREE Jay Peak Resort Lift Pass for the day of the event on 3/1/2020 (non-transferable). Donations raised through Hope on the Slopes will help provide families in need with information and support, fund research that leads to improved treatments, educate the public about cancer prevention and early detection, and help ensure that everyone has access to lifesaving cancer screenings.
Did you know that 50% of all men and 1/3 of all women who are alive RIGHT NOW will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in their lives?
A lot of progress has been made but there’s more work to be done so we can live in a world without cancer and that’s why the American Cancer Society and events like Hope on the Slopes exist. One day, we’ll be able to say we beat cancer. But to make that happen, it’s going to take all of us working together. A big part of the work is FUNdraising and Hope On The Slopes is made possible by the support of our partners:
