Two public hearings on changes to fishing regulations will be held later this month by the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Board.
Sauger, a species in decline in Lake Champlain, would be protected with a requirement that any sauger caught must be immediately released.
A former temporary "Test Water Designation" with restrictions on the Batten Kill and some of its tributaries would be adopted as a regulation.
The proposed rule covering both subjects is available on the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department's website (www.vtfishandwildlife.com) under "Law Enforcement" and "Rules and Proposed Rules."
The hearings are scheduled as follows:
February 24 -- Burr & Burton Academy, 57 Seminary Avenue, Manchester at 7:00 p.m.
February 25 -- Fish & Wildlife Board meeting, Dewey Building, 1 National Life Drive, Montpelier at 6:30 p.m.
