Second Best Bass Fishing In Nh

Recommended Posts

I don't live in New Hampshire anymore but if you get a chance try and get in good with someone who lives on Nippo Lake(the actual lake) over in Barrington. Its a private access(the 2 roads leading to it are private) but the state owns one corner of it and the only time I ever saw a warden out there he told me that if you take the snowmobile trail the state maintains you can fish or drag a yak out there and fish on the lake. Luckily my grandparents owned a house out there. Its almost criminally under fished. You see 2 maybe 3 people fish any given weekend and its all bored rich people from mass. 

It has some good rocky points for some of the best smallies I ever saw and a couple of giant weed patches with some of the biggest bucket mouths I ever saw north of VA. I caught a NH personal best 7 pounder right off our dock. Lots of large pickerel and even a couple of trout(rumors of some salmon from stocking years ago but we trolled the deepest parts all summer and only caught a couple of trout).

One thing I must warn anyone about is the fact that it has 2 of the biggest snapping turtles I ever saw in my life in it. I had a 3 pounder tied to my yak(dinner) and it litterally dragged me 30 feet when it bit into the fish.


Anyways I highly recommend trying to get out there.

 Lake Winnipesaukee is a pretty good lake for smallmouth and largemouth. It has the reputation as being one of the best topwater fishing lakes in the country. Average smallmouth in there is around 3lbs with bigger fish mixed in. In the past 10 years or so the largemouth really have been taking over though. Tourneys used to be won by smallmouth there, now its largemouth. There are so many places to fish on winni. Where are you staying ?

If you still want to fish Winni I would strongly suggest to get a Bizer map :)
