Lake Umbagog Professional Review and Guide

"Lake Umbagog is a North Country treasure, teeming with wildlife, surrounded by boreal forests, and dotted with islands and beautiful backcountry campsites. Lake Umbagog (pronounced um-BAY-gog) is a place of immense beauty, solitude, and wilderness. Home to the largest concentration of nesting loons and ospreys in New Hampshire, it is also home to copious numbers of moose, bears, lynxes, coyotes, minks, and bobcats.

It sprawls over 7,538 acres in a remote corner of northern New Hampshire, making it logistically difficult to reach, and therefore quiet and peaceful for those who do visit. The relatively shallow lake (average depth is 15 feet) is the second largest in the state and is chock-full of warm- and cold-water fish. Bass, landlocked salmon, brook trout, and perch are prolific here, and it is rare for a fishing trip to go by with-out at least one catch-of-the-day dinner. Kid and dog-friendly."
