State does aerial stocking in 48 places

(Continued)

Many of these remote ponds are located off popular hiking trails (ensure a safe hike by following the recommendations at hikesafe.com). Anglers generally can backpack a float tube and waders, or simply wade from shore. Also, early spring water temperatures can still be fairly cool, so Smith recommends insulated waders if you have them. They are a little bit heavier, but well worth it to keep warm in the cool water.

A few of these remote ponds are designated as “fly fishing only,” so be sure to check the regulations prior to your trip. For the list of remote ponds that are stocked, check the Fish and Game website at fishnh.com/Fishing/trout_remote.htm.
