Welcome to a special "mid-January" edition of the New Hampshire Fishing Report.  Prior to last week’s brief warm-up, extended bitter cold weather has led to favorable early season ice conditions across the Granite State. Even so, never trust second-hand ice thickness information; ALWAYS check it yourself by punching some test holes as you move from shore to deeper water, especially early in the season.  Don’t forget that Saturday, January 20, is Free Fishing Day!  Be sure to invite a friend along and introduce them to the sport.  Check out the regional reports below and stay warm out there!
