NH FishingAhhh, the Great North Woods in northern New Hampshire, a sportsmens paradise and an excellent choice for your New Hampshire fishing vacation. This far northern area features some fantastic fly fishing, lake trolling, trout ponds, bogs and streams. This is where the headwaters of the Connecticut River – New England’s largest river, may be found. The man-made string of lakes called 1st Connecticut, 2nd Connecticut and 3rd Connecticut are home to many lake trout, landlocked salmon, perch and other species. Please do not disturb the nesting loons that can be found on many bodies of water in this region. The loons are protected – there eerie calls may be heard primarily in the evening hours. This region offers many lakeside camp rentals – from basic cabins to luxurious waterfront homes with fireplaces, hot tubs and fine dining.  Ask us about NH Fishing or share comments.
