MONTPELIER, Vermont — The Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife says people wanting to try ice fishing will be able to do so later this month without having to buy a fishing license.

The state's second free ice-fishing day is set for Jan. 31.

The day will be highlighted by an activity-filled ice fishing festival hosted by Fish and Wildlife in conjunction with the Champlain Valley Hardwater Tournament Series.

Vermont's Free Ice Fishing Day was started last year. It enables residents and non-residents alike to go ice fishing anywhere in Vermont for the day without a license.

The ice fishing festival will be held at the Malletts Bay Fishing Access Area on Lake Champlain in Colchester. It is free and open to everyone. Registration begins at 1 p.m. on Jan. 31.
