Free Talk: N.H. Back-country Trout Fishing Adventures
CONCORD, N.H. -- Find out how to get in on some of the finest eastern brook trout fishing that New Hampshire has to offer! Registered N.H. fishing guide Rick Estes will present a free talk called "Back-country Trout Fishing Adventures" on Wednesday, March 12, 2008, at 7 p.m. at New Hampshire Fish and Game headquarters, 11 Hazen Drive in Concord. Admission is free; no pre-registration is needed. The session is part of Fish and Game's spring series of free fishing talks by expert anglers.
"New Hampshire's backcountry fishing experience offers a full gamut of adventures for anglers willing to make the effort to get off the beaten path and away from the stocking truck," said Estes, who guides in the White Mountain National Forest. "Whether you're looking for a short hike or an overnight outing, our backcountry has it all."
"These remote ponds and streams hold the finest eastern brook trout fishing that this state, and arguably New England, has to offer," said Estes. Anglers have an opportunity to experience a truly wild fishery, as well as "naturalized" fish that are the product of aerial stocking.
"Fly fishing is Rick's passion, so his presentation will focus on that aspect of the back-country experience," said Mark Beauchesne, Fish and Game's Advertising and Promotions Coordinator. "He'll talk about the gear you need, safety concerns for angling in the remote areas of our beautiful state and how anglers can help keep these places special. All this comes from years of experience and lessons learned while working in the woods and waters of New Hampshire."
"The solitude and beauty of one of these adventures can't be duplicated anywhere," says Estes. "The satisfaction you will feel after experiencing a New Hampshire backcountry fishing experience is priceless."
