Ice fishermen, fish have been stocked

CONCORD — Winter anglers in New Hampshire had some trout stocked especially for them this fall.

The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department stocks trout every year during the fall months, mostly to bolster the winter ice fishery. This should translate into some exciting action for winter anglers, according to Inland Fisheries Division Chief Jason Smith.

Anglers going after trout can find lists of waters that remain open to the taking of trout year round on the Fish and Game website. For lakes and ponds, visit fishnh.com/Fishing/year_round_trout_ponds.htm. For rivers and streams, see fishnh.com/Fishing/year_round_trout_streams.htm.

Rules for waterbodies with special regulations are listed in the N.H. Freshwater Fishing Digest, available from license agents or on the Fish and Game website at fishnh.com/pubs/fishing.html.

Fish and Game Department hatcheries stocked out post-spawn brook and brown trout this fall into selected waterbodies without a closed season. These fish can range from 2 to 3 pounds each. Numbers, dates and stocking locations vary annually depending on availability.

For anglers wishing to pursue open-water trout fishing in rivers, Fish and Game stocked portions of the Cocheco and Lamprey Rivers earlier this fall with surplus broodfish from its New Hampton Hatchery.
