CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Rule hearings on two proposed changes affecting fishing tournaments are being held next month at the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department in Concord.

The department is proposing to allow open-water tournaments that target rock bass and which have been conducted continuously since before Jan. 1, 2008, to be held in waters managed for lake trout and salmon.

Another proposal would allow possession of live fish and culling of black bass by participants in intra-scholastic fishing tournaments.

The hearing is scheduled for noon on Friday, May 1. Written comments will be received through May 8.
