A Grand Month for Ice Fishing!
During February, the frozen lakes and ponds of northern New Hampshire are an invitation to try your hand at one of the season’s most enjoyable sports – ice fishing. Tramp across the ice on a sunny winter’s day with a sled full of supplies and set up camp. Drill some holes in the ice and get ready to catch several of the wily fish that glide by unseen just under your feet.
Stop in at one of the stores that sells bait, equipment and fishing licenses and get the lowdown on the owner’s preferred pond, or check out the New Hampshire Fish and Game website for additional information.
Some favorite ice fishing spots include, Burns Pond, Whitefield; Martin Meadow Pond, Lancaster; First, Second and Third Connecticut Lakes, Lake Francis and Big Diamond Pond, Pittsburg; Pontook Reservoir, Dummer; and Cedar Pond, Milan.
