The New Jersey Fish and Game Council has scheduled a public hearing for the proposed 2001 Fish Code at 7:30 p.m., August 8, at the Division of Fish and Wildlife's Assunpink Conservation Center on Eldridge Road in Robbinsville, Monmouth County.

"All New Jersey anglers are encouraged to attend and actively take part in shaping the future of their sport," said Division Director Bob McDowell.

The Fish Code describes the legal angling methods, season dates, size and catch limits, and trout stocking locations and dates for freshwater fishing in the Garden State. The regulations are reviewed annually and appropriately revised based on biological findings, changing situations and anglers' recommendations, and then proposed for the next year's code.

Anglers should consider how the following proposed changes to the 2001 Fish Code would affect their fishing and provide the Division with their comments.

To obtain a copy of the proposed 2001 Fish Code, send a self-addressed, stamped ($0.55 postage) 11" x 14" envelope to the Division of Fish and Wildlife, P.O. Box 400, Trenton, New Jersey 08625-0400, ATTN: Fish Code. Written comments regarding the code should be submitted by August 16th to Director Bob McDowell at the above address.
