CONCORD, N.H. -- The Inland Fisheries Division of the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department is reviewing its current Freshwater Fishing Bait Dealer rules and regulations to see if they can be improved to benefit bait dealers, Fish and Game, and the state’s angling community.

In order to provide an opportunity for input and suggestions from the bait dealer community, the Department will hold a public information meeting on March 29, 2018, at 6:00 p.m. at Fish and Game Headquarters at 11 Hazen Drive, Concord, NH.

 "A lot of changes have transpired in recent years, and we want to ensure that we are keeping up with the evolution of these changes," said Jason Smith, Inland Fisheries Division Chief.

"The current rules for licensed fishing bait dealers have served us well, but we feel that some adjustments may be helpful to assist you with serving New Hampshire anglers more effectively and efficiently, meanwhile protecting the State of New Hampshire’s precious natural resources. We encourage licensed bait dealers to attend and bring forward any ideas and suggestions you may have," said Smith.
