NH Fishing Log: Almost Open Water – April Trips


4/7/14 Winnipesaukee, Paugus Bay, Laconia
Conditions: mostly cloudy, 50s, calm
Equipment: noodle rod and light spinning gear for bait
Baits: live smelt
Met a friend to fish open water from a dock opposite Channel Marine where the Weirs Channel opens into Paugus Bay. No action but a nice evening chatting and watching Winni’s stubborn ice start to break up. Feeling very ready for spring…

4/3/14 Winnipesaukee & Winnipesaukee River, Laconia > Silver Lake, Lochmere
Conditions: bright sunshine, 50s to near 60
Equipment: noodle rod and light spinning gear for bait
Baits: live shiners/smelt
Worked a number of shorebanks for salmon and trout, running through some of my favorite haunts: the docks at Weirs Beach, the Weirs Channel, the outlet of Lake Opechee into the Winnipesaukee River, the power station where the river runs into Silver Lake. Drifted bait through spots where the water was moving and along ice edges. Nice day. No bites, but man… it was a good day to be outside!
