Fishing is good - free fishing in VT next Sat 6/13

Two nice rainbows taken in northern Vermont on dry flies. I needed my nephew's help with the net. The bigger one went 6 lbs and 23 1/2 inches.
We also had some luck with catch and release bass fishing, getting a bunch up to 3 lbs. Fishing is great - grab a kid and get on the water!
