    • New Hampshire Fishing Report #16

      Greetings, anglers! “Summertime and the livin’ is easy, fish are jumpin’ and the cotton is high…” so goes the old Gershwin tune. Well, we may not have any cotton in the Granite State but probably a few bass jumping!  It’s the middle of July already and the “dog days” of […]

    • New Hampshire Fishing Report #9

      North Country Fishing is no different from any other sport in that weather conditions play a vital role.

    • New Hampshire Fishing Report #8
