Spring & Summer in Connecticut Lakes Headwaters

  • At Ramblewood salmon and trout swim off of our docks, so if you have bait you don’t even need to rent a boat! Kids under 16 don’t need a license, but adults need one. Treats and Treasures Gift Shop sells licenses and is located ¼ mile north on Route 3. They also sell bait at select times during the summer.
  • In Pittsburg many people enjoy fly fishing the rivers and streams, especially the trophy stretch on the Connecticut south of the Lake Francis Dam. Up to date rules and regulations can be found in NH’s annual fishing digest (available at the office and Young’s Store) and also online at http://www.wildlife.state.nh.us/ . It’s important to note which ponds are fly fishing only, and until which dates. Coon Brook Bog, East Inlet, and some additional bodies of water are stocked annually.
  • If you’re looking for a little insider knowledge, check out Dead Water Adventures for guide services.

  • Our lakeside cabins are excellent places to start a day of fishing on First Connecticut Lake: walk directly onto the ice from our waterfront.
