Vermont Fish and wildlife officials to survey lake anglers
NEWPORT, Vt. (AP) — The Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department says it is beginning an angler survey on Lake Memphremagog this month.
Officials say the survey will extend through November 2020 and will include both American and Canadian anglers. The Caledonian-Record reports department clerks will conduct interviews at the lake multiple days every week during the survey period.
Three quarters of the 30-mile long lake is located in Quebec, but three quarters of the lake’s watershed is located in Vermont.
Authorities are looking to obtain information about fishing effort, catch and harvest rates, and biological data about the fish kept by anglers.
The Great Lakes Fishery Commission funded the two-year survey.
