Saturday, April 26th marks the opening fishing season in New Hampshire's designated trout and fly-fishing-only ponds. These trout ponds will remain open through October 15th, 2008.
Many of these ponds are stocked with brook rainbow and brown trout ranging from "yearlings" (8-12 inches), 2-year olds (12-15 inches), and 3+ year olds.
Some of the early season hot spots include: Hot Hole Pond, Clough Pond, French Pond, Mount William Pond, Dublin Lake, and Lucas Pond. As ice in continues to melt in northern regions of the state, other ponds will become hot spots.
Worms and powerbait work well in catching trout. For more information about trout fishing in New Hampshire, click here.
