June 29, 2017

Merrimack River anglers and boaters should be aware of the lowering of the water level in the river above Amoskeag Dam due to construction work. By July 17, the water level will be approximately 6 feet below normal, and will remain at this level until July 28. On July 29, EverSource will begin raising the water level approximately 4 feet. The water level will then remain 2 feet below normal until October 13. The boat launch at Lambert Park in Hooksett may not be usable during the maximum drawdown period. Please pass along the word to other anglers.
