Location: Cranston Central Library, James Giles Community Room,140 Sockanosset Cross Road, Cranston RI, 02920

DEM is holding a public workshop on Tuesday, March 12 at 5:30 PM regarding the proposed regulations for the 2025-26 freshwater fishing season and the 2024-25 and 2025-26 hunting and trapping seasons and bag limits. The workshop’s purpose is to inform the public about regulatory proposals currently under consideration by DEM's Division of Fish and Wildlife (DFW) and to give the opportunity for feedback on these and alternative proposals. The meeting will not be recorded, nor will there be written testimony. This workshop will feature short presentations about program proposals and is geared for members of the public to interact with DFW staff.

An official public hearing on the proposed regulations will be held in May with a date and time to be provided in the future. To request copies of the draft regulations, please email David Kalb at or call 401-284-3427. Copies of the draft regulations will be provided prior to the workshop.
