The Vermont Senate is expected to take up a House-passed bill designating two fish species as the state fish of Vermont.
The bill won final House approval on Friday, and would make the brook trout the state's cold-water fish and the walleye pike Vermont's official warm-water fish.
Derby Republican Rep. Robert Lewis introduced the bill. He says Vermont's icy streams are known for their brook trout fishing, while it's somewhat warmer lakes are known for their walleye.
