My favorite place to fish. Seems like the word is out, a lot more fishermen this year. Still caught my share of trout and salmon nothing really big this year.

I fished this river with my Dad. It's great for wading and fly-fishing. A must-do trip if you want to fish a great place in NH!

Paddled all the lakes plus East Inlet and Scotts Bog. We are paddles, not fishermen, however, we hear the fishing is great.

I was with a scout troop that took on the Connecticut River for a canoe trip. The plan was to set out with about seven canoes and have a truck with trailer meet us each night or to be available for portages if needed.

The Connecticut River officially starts around the third Connecticut Lake, connecting to the 2nd lake to the south and finally the First Connecticut Lake (and Lake Francis) before heading south through Massachusetts, Connecticut and the Long Island Sound. We found a number of campsites along the way and some nice people who let us camp on their land. The river winds through many small towns, where you can get supplies at various mini marts and general stores. It is gorgeous country and very clean water, but keep an eye on the weather because the river can go from a trickle to a torrent. Keep also in mind that the entire river is in New Hampshire, even when it forms the border between Vermont and New Hampshire, so you'll probably need a NH fishing license. Also, there are a lot of dams and portages in disrepair, so keep an eye out for sudden rapids as you go around the old dams.

Definitely worth the trip.
