Connecticut River, Upper Professional Review and Guide
"Landlocked salmon, early. Otherwise you’ll have to make do with trout. Independent is the middle name of the folks of New Hampshire’s North Country; they’re as staunch as the granite mountains and they take their angling seriously. But nothing fancy. If your flybox contains a handful of Sulphurs and Yellow Sallies, Elk Hair and Black Caddis, a few hex, some Adams and Royal Wulffs you’ll be pretty much set.
The tailwater below the First Connecticut Lake is set aside as catch-and-release, fly-fishing water. Depending on temperatures, salmon runs may start as early as late April. Normally mid- May marks the opening of the best runs. Species: Landlocked salmon, brown, brook, rainbow. Angling methods: spin, and fly-fishing."
