RUTLAND, Vt. (AP) - Vermont's bass fishing season is underway.
The season opened Saturday and runs through the last day of November.
The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department says the state is known for its fishing for largemouth and smallmouth bass which are abundant in a range of waters across Vermont from small ponds to larger lakes and rivers.
The season traditionally opens on the second Saturday in June.
Officials say despite the cool rainy spring, reports were strong for the catch-and-release bass fishing earlier in the spring.
