N.H. Trophy Fish, 2010

New Hampshire's Trophy Fish program provides recognition for both kept and released fish in twenty-two freshwater species and seven saltwater species categories.  The program provides opportunity for enthusiasts of all ages to receive recognition while giving biologists important information on the fisheries over time.

All successful applicants receive a "Trophy Fish" shoulder patch for submitting their catch information. Then, each February, the person who caught the largest fish in each species category is presented with a certificate suitable for framing.  All ages and all legal methods of angling are represented.

Congratulations to all the 2010 N.H. Trophy Fish entries, listed below. Winners are listed first in their categories.
