I’ve pulled many trout out of many bodies of water, but never Lake Champlain. But in my experience, fishes are alike all over and all you need is a little know-how and a dichotomous key.
I’m a detective, so I’m not green when it comes to slimeballs. But I’m a fish detective, so I know some scaleballs, too. This year it is my distinct honor to be a part of the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum’s One and Only Fish Camp!
It’s going to be a heck of a week! Together, we will explore every trick in the book for fish-catching, from seine nets to rods and reels. We’ll get inside the heads of fish, think how they think, swim how they swim, and peek into their homes with state-of-the-art camera equipment. We’ll learn what exactly makes a fish- from the adipose fin to the lateral line.
Yes, my friend, there is a lot to do out here on the lake, and there’s always more to learn about the lake’s slippery inhabitants. I hope to teach and learn with you at The One and Only Fish Camp!
Rainbow Trout Roz is proud to be a fish camp counselor from June 26th-June 30th
