N.H.'s Endangered Fish; Strategies for Walleye Anglers; and Access to Public Waters – All in the Latest Issue of New Hampshire Wildlife Journal
CONCORD, N.H. – Learn the secrets for pursuing one of North America's premiere gamefish – right here in New Hampshire! The March-April 2010 issue of “New Hampshire Wildlife Journal” magazine explores the strategies, natural history and tackle tips to help you succeed in reeling in a walleye this year.
Also in this issue, meet some fish you may not have heard so much about – a trio of endangered fish in a struggle for survival, as identified in the state's Wildlife Action Plan. Learn where these fish live and how you can help protect the habitat and aquatic ecosystems they rely upon.
Another feature looks at how Fish and Game's Public Water Access Program helps the public float their boats. In 1992, there were fewer than 10 Fish and Game public access sites in New Hampshire. Today there are nearly 140, creating important opportunities for the public to fish, paddle, sail and relax on the state's magnificent public waters.
The Journal is the state’s only magazine dedicated to fish and wildlife conservation and recreation. Regular columns profile the eastern phoebe, hikeSafe guidelines, new Fish and Game lands to enjoy, and challenges for our landlocked salmon fisheries. The Kid's Page looks at spring salamander migrations. "Wild Places" showcases New Hampshire's newest state park -- Jericho Mountain State Park in Berlin, N.H., with an extensive network of trails for snowmobiles, All-Terrain Vehicles and trail bikes.
