FAIRMONT -

The West Virginia Division of Natural Resources held a public meeting at East Fairmont High School on Monday to discuss its new proposals for the 2014 hunting, fishing, and trapping seasons.

The DNR invited the public to hear the proposals and make comments and suggestions.

"We like to see as many people as possible. Because the more people you can get to comment the better feel you get for what's out there, what people want to see, what they like, what they don't like. Nothing is really put into a rule until it's reviewed, and compiled, and then the DNR commissioners will vote on it," said Frank Jezioro, director of the West Virginia DNR.

Frank Haught, an avid fisherman from Lumberport, said he liked that he could voice his concerns over new fishing regulations.

"We're concerned with the new regulations on Stonewall Jackson Lake. They're going to do away with the catch and release and we really don't what it lifted. That's the main reason we're here. We want to keep the catch and release as it is," said Haught.

If you missed the meeting on Monday and still want to voice your opinions, the DNR will hold another meeting Tuesday in Elkins at the DNR Operations Center at 6 p.m.
