Fishing the NH Lakes Region - The Fish are Always this Big...

NH Lakes Region fishermen and s significant Striped Bass

The fun of fishing seems to transcend all ages as to excitement and thrills, from the great grandparent to the great grandchild. And the lakes and rivers of the Lakes Region of New Hampshire provide endless opportunities and memories for everyone. I have several favorite quotes about fishing. Some even by noted and notable fisher folk. But my all time one remains, We are always the same age inside which Ive taken from a Gertrude Stein essay and applied to this noble effort. In another few weeks Ill put my own dock out. I have a bench at the end of it which provides just the right comfort level for both the eldest and youngest anglers. For me as well, though I do like to go out in pursuit of the small mouth bass and lake trout of Lake Winnipesaukee. For the first timers I suggest a day or half day with one of the professional guides on the big lake, check Lake Winnipesaukee Fishing Guides. They wont give away all of their secrets, just enough of them to make sure that youll enjoy yourself. The NH Fish and Game Dept. has been busy since early April stocking the smaller lakes, rivers and streams in Carroll and Belknap Counties. My neighbor and his son had a great day at Manning Lake on Sunday. They limited out on fine Brook Trout. And my friend, Captain Joel, of should have his boat out by late May in the Piscataqua River and offering the very best striped bass action anywhere. Ive been out with him a half dozen times and always had a great time. Like James Joyce, I love all things that flow, I too am enamored by the sight and sound of moving water though I suspect he may have been alluding to things other than rivers. At any rate its fishing season, part of the many whys folks embrace the New Hampshire life style especially here in the Lakes Region. I encourage you to experience and re-experience an activity that will never grow stale, you can always recall a day on the water. Jim Ferriman
