CONCORD, N.H. – Explore the cool side of hot-weather fishing in the July-August 2014 issue of NH Wildlife Journal. Fisheries biologists Andrew Schafermeyer and Don Miller offer a fitting tribute to this liberating, laid-back time of year to be on the water.
Also in this issue, enjoy a gallery of amazing photos of common loons, and find out how anglers, paddlers and others can help protect these iconic birds. Anglers are being encouraged to switch to non-lead tackle in advance of a new law going into effect in 2016 that bans the sale and use of all lead sinkers and jigs that weigh one ounce or less.
Then head for the coast and ponder the fate of one of New Hampshire's most diverse ecosystems, the salt marsh, as reported by GraniteGeek science columnist David Brooks. N.H. Fish and Game has established sentinel sites to measure changes happening throughout the state's 6,200 acres of salt marsh as sea levels and temperatures rise.
Regular columns in the magazine bring you lots more information, from how to fillet a fish to keeping bears out of your back yard. Naturalist'sNotebook profiles the "porcupine of the sea," the green sea urchin. Turn to the entertaining Warden's Watch column for the day-to-day adventures of Fish and Game Conservation Officers.
