“Great place to fish and sightsee”
Review of Connecticut River

Reviewed June 2, 2016

The upper Connecticut River in Pittsburg NH is an outstanding example of a white water river and is known for its trout fishing. There are numerous places to pull over ad go down to the river and there are several parks and boat accesses.
The river starts within yards of the Canadian border north of Pittsburg in moose country. It wends its way through four lakes, aptly named Lake Number 4, Lake Number 3, etc. Four is the northernmost. As the river flows from 2 to 1 and from 1 to the flood control Lake Francis, there are numerous trout - browns and rainbows, There is also landlocked salmon and bass in the lakes. The river is accessible and fun to fish.

Beginning as a small stream and flowing into several "lakes" as it flows down between the state-line of Vermont and New Hampshire.

The Connecticut river feels like it has not been touched by anyone but the Creator. The water is crisp, clean, and with different depths this river is just marvelous for fishing.
Or just sit by the river and listen to the surrounding nature. Awesome.
