Bass Fishing Lakes In Vermont

Even though the cold water in Vermont shortens the growing season, bass thrive in many fisheries through out the state. Bass can be found in ponds, parks, rivers and small lakes. The larger populations of bass can be found in Vermonts major lakes including Harriman Reservoir, Island Pond, Lake Bomoseen, Lake Carmi, Lake Champlain, Lake Dunmore, Lake Memphremagog, Lake St Catherine and Seymour Lake.

Lake Dunmore produced the Vermont state record largemouth bass and Lake Champlain was home to the VT state record smallmouth bass.

Bass are aggressive feeders and agile enough to chase down and catch most of their favorite foods. They are most easily caught during a feeding spree but can also be enticed into striking an anglers bait for reasons other than hunger. They are predatory by nature and at times will strike at anything that enters their domain. If it moves and they can get it into their large mouth, bass will attempt to eat it.
