Fly fishersCONCORD, 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:
