Boating & Fishing

The New Hampshire Fishing and Game Department provides a long list of potential fishing spots: Fishing and Game List.

In addition to ponds, lakes, and marshes, there are opportunities for canoeing and kayaking on the Contoocook and Ashuelot rivers. The Connecticut River, which borders the Monadnock region towns of Hinsdale, Chesterfield, Westmoreland and Walpole, has several access points: more information from the Connecticut River Paddlers’ Trail website.

All boaters should be mindful of the threat of millfoil, and be sure to carefully clean your boats before entering and after leaving the water.
