NAPLES, Maine (AP) - Maine Senator Angus King is meeting with residents, fishermen and outdoorsmen for a discussion about climate change’s impact on ice fishing.

The Independent senator is holding the meeting at Naples Town Hall at 2:30 p.m. on Thursday. Conservation group Environment Maine is hosting the event. The group says Maine’s winter tradition of ice fishing is jeopardized by frequent storms and warming temperatures.

Environment Maine says the event will allow King and others to discuss the science behind Maine’s changing winters and how the ice fishing community can raise its voice on this issue.

Representatives from Trout Unlimited, Maine Rivers, Maine Lakes Society, the Sebago Lake Anglers Association, Lakes Environmental Association and Loon Echo Land Trust will join King at the event.
