Freshwater Fishing Rule Hearing July 31, 2014
CONCORD, N.H. – The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department will hold a public hearing on proposed freshwater fishing rules for 2015 on Thursday, July 31, 2014, at 6:30 p.m. at the N.H. Fish and Game Department, 11 Hazen Drive, Concord, N.H.
Rule changes being proposed by Fish and Game would:
- Amend rules relative to streams and rivers to account for the elimination of the Atlantic salmon stocking program and the Atlantic salmon brood stock fishery;
- Clarify the rules with respect to brook trout in Umbagog Lake;
- Eliminate any new fishing tournaments on lake trout and salmon lakes; this change does not affect open water bass fishing tournaments or grandfathered tournaments such as the Meredith Rotary Ice Fishing Derby and the Laconia Rotary-Winni Derby.
