4609. Connecticut River; Lake Champlain

(a) Persons

holding a New Hampshire fishing license may take fish from the Connecticut

rules and regulations adopted by the state of New Hampshire relative to open

and closed seasons, limits of catch, minimum sizes of fish caught and methods

of fishing and upon agreement between the commissioner and the director of fish

and game of the state of New Hampshire and the approval of the secretary.

Whereupon the laws of this state covering such matters shall be suspended as to

the waters above described. Any violation of said provisions shall be punished

as provided in section 4515 of this title.

(b) A person

holding a New York fishing license may take fish from the Vermont portion of

Lake Champlain provided the state of New York grants the right to fish in the

New York portion of the lake to a person holding a Vermont fishing license. In

this case, a person holding a New York license may take fish in the Vermont

portion of the lake in accordance with rules adopted under this part and shall

be fined pursuant to section 4515 of this title for violation of the rules while

fishing in the Vermont portion of the lake. In this section, the Vermont

portion of Lake Champlain means the portion of Lake Champlain which lies within

Vermont waters up to the mouth of any tributary river or stream, and shall not

include any waters on the east side of the railroad fills at Malletts Bay, the

Gut, and Pelots Point.
