Wildlife Management Areas

The Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department owns more than 100 Wildlife Management Areas (WMAs) throughout the state, totaling over 133,000 acres. Each area is open to the public and offers a unique diversity of native plants and animals. The WMAs are enjoyed by the public for hiking, wildlife observation, bird watching, and educational opportunities. Many hunters, anglers, and trappers favor these areas, as all Vermont WMAs are open to regulated hunting, trapping, and fishing.

Fishing Platforms

Agency Facilities provides engineering design and construction oversight for the placement of shore fishing platforms for angler accessibility to lakes and streams statewide. Many of these platforms are located on Fish and Wildlife public access areas and are selected based on shoreline habitat conditions that provide the best fishing opportunities. 

Fishing Access Areas

The Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife maintains more than 180 developed fishing access areas throughout the state, providing public access for boat launching and shore fishing.  These access areas vary in size and services offered, as well as the size of watercraft they can accommodate. Locations are chosen based on shoreline habitat conditions that provide anglers with the most promising opportunities. 

Operating Permit Application Guidance

New sources subject to the operating permit requirements must submit their application within 12 months of becoming subject to the requirements of Subchapter X of the Regulations. Whereas construction permits are good for the life of the project (provided no modifications are made), the operating permit must be renewed every five years to incorporate any new requirements that may have been adopted in the interim.  The following documents provide guidance  to assist the applicant with completeing  an Air Pollution Control Operating Permit.
