N.H. Trophy Fish, 2012

Congratulations to all the 2012 N.H. Trophy Freshwater Fish entries, listed below. 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 ages and all legal methods of angling are represented. Click here for link to the rules and application form.
