Cold Weather Fishing

Baby, it’s cold outside! But that never stops the hardy sort who want to go fishing, even in winter.

The Connecticut Lakes are home to lake trout, cusk, and brown trout. From our cabins you can conveniently access First Connecticut Lake. Lake Francis, First Connecticut Lake, Second Connecticut Lake and Third Connecticut Lake are open for ice fishing. Large lake trout are often caught through the ice. Brown trout are often caught through the ice at Lake Francis. First, Second and Third Lake offer cusk and lake trout. Bait is available at Treats and Treasures which is about a quarter mile to our north on Rte 3.It probably goes without saying, but ice fisherpersons need to layer up: flannel, fleece and extra socks are always a good idea. Ice fishing is regulated by the NH Fish and Game Department. For information and regulations, click here.
