RUTLAND, Vt. (AP) - Vermont’s walleye fishing season is underway.

The season opened Saturday and runs through March 15, 2016.

The Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department expects fishing may be good in some Lake Champlain tributaries because the cold spring temperatures and late runoff have delayed spawning, meaning more walleye may be in the rivers.

Anglers can take three fish a day and the fish must be at least 18 inches long in all water bodies except for Lake Carmi, Chittenden Reservoir and the Connecticut River, which have different daily limits and fish size restrictions.
