kind of trips are available throughout the year?
- Mid-April to mid-May the rivers in northern Massachusetts (Squannacook
and Nissitissit) and southern NH (Souhegan and Piscataquog) are
quick to run-off and offer good early season nymphing and maybe
a Quill gordon hatch.
- Late April or early May – Hendrickson hatch on the Farmington
River in CT
- Mid-May - Hendrickson hatch on Contoocook and other NH Rivers
- Late May or early June – Alder fly hatch on Newfound
and Merrimack Rivers
- Mid-June to July 1 - Best fishing of the year, with huge Alder
fly caddis hatch on
Androscoggin River and hexagenia giant mayflies on trout ponds.
- Early June to mid-July – Pemigewasset, Saco and Ellis
Rivers various hatches
- Early July – afternoon fishing the Pemigewasset and evening
fishing the hex hatch on Sky, Echo or Profile Lakes.
- All summer - the Connecticut, Androscoggin and Pemigewasset
Rivers offer cool water and willing trout. Other White Mountain
rivers can fish good with sufficient rainfall.
- In September to November the rivers cool off and good fishing
is found throughout the area.
- Late-fall to early-April (or just about any time) - fishing
tiny flies for good-size, well-educated trout on the Swift River
tailwater in MA.
- Unless you have a personal preference, we'll take you to the
spots for the best fishing in New Hampshire for the time you want
to fish. If conditions are poor, we'll tell you. We don't
want to set unrealistic expectations.

in Boston or Manchester?
We can arrange
a half-day trip that starts after your business day ends.
There is nothing like fishing the evening hatch to help melt
the stress away.
with the In-laws in the NH Lakes Region?
In late June
and July we can help you forget about your long days of shopping
the outlet malls by fishing the hexagenia hatch for large trout
with big flies.
into Manchester for a sales-call with your best account?
take them fishing instead of out to dinner? That picture
of you and your client with a trophy trout will solidify your
relationship better than any lobster and a bottle of wine will!
the rounds checking out colleges with your high schooler?
piggy-back a day of fishing on your trip. If you are visiting
multiple schjools, it is a way of breaking up the trip. Make
it a family outing or send the student and/or spouse off, while
you sample New England fly fishing. Great hatches are within
an easy commute from Boston and other college towns.
to New Hampshire?
You can spend
weeks and months using trial and error to learn your new "home
waters" OR you can spend a day or two with a New Hampshire
Rivers guide exploring proven producing waters. Want to
know where the big fishcan be found? Looking for that
special hike-in brook trout pond? New Hampshire Rivers
for the perfect Father's Day or birthday gift?
appreciates all those ties, socks and golf umbrellas that you
have been buying him, but just imagine the grin on his face
when he opens the envelope with the fly fishing gift certificate
for a day on the water with New Hampshire Rivers guide!
to organize a "team-building" event or off-site staff
way to get to know your colleagues, build rapport and enjoy
a common experience than learning how to fly fish together?
Fly fishing requires a certain amount of coordination, but no
strength or athletic ability is required. It is a non-competitive,
fun experience that will have your staff raving about the good
time they had. Best of all, it will cost you less than
a round of golf at most country clubs!
to experience a wilderness fishing lodge on a tight budget?
stayed at the high-priced lodges in Canada, Maine, the Adirondacks,
Montana and elsewhere. We strive to replicate that experience
as much as possible in northern NH. We have created the NH Rivers
Guides' "Virtual fishing lodge" in Errol, NH on the
banks of the Androscoggin River. See our Special
All-inclusive Package for details.
fish, but enjoy the outdoors and viewing wildlife?
lakes and ponds of New Hampshire are ideal for sightseeing and
viewing wildlife. Ever see a bald eagle fish for dinner? We
have. Ever hear an osprey screeching to defend their territory?
We have. Ever see a "big brown rock" in a pond suddenly
rise up with water streaming from his antlers, munching on water
plants? We have! We would love to take you exploring the backroads
and waterways of New England looking for moose, deer, bear,
fox, mink, otters, beavers, bears, coyotes, eagles, osprey,
ravens, and more.
for a great place to stay in the White Mountains?
Mountain Club on Loon is a really nice place that is within
an hour of all the great rivers, streams and ponds in the White
Mountains. We often stay there when fishing the Pemigewasset
River near Lincoln; the Saco and Ellis Rivers in Jackson and
North Conway; and the Ammonoosuc River in Twin Mountain and
Bethlehem. You are on the East Branch of the Pemigewasset
River and the views are nothing short of spectacular.
