LANSING, Mich. (AP) - A state panel is expected to set regulations for a sport angling practice known as “chumming,” which involves releasing parts of dead fish into the water to attract live fish.

The Michigan Natural Resources Commission is scheduled to decide on the rules during a meeting Thursday in Lansing. They will pertain to chumming for trout and salmon in inland streams.

Before the vote, the Policy Committee on Wildlife and Fisheries will make a presentation on the proposed regulations.

Also on the agenda are discussions of state parks and trails projects, the fight to prevent invasive carp from reaching the Great Lakes and the state’s water strategy.

The commission also will take public comments on natural resources issues.
