Wild Trout Management in NH

There are numerous mountain streams and backcountry ponds that may provide wild trout fishing opportunities. The following list of waters are specifically managed to protect wild trout. The trout population is not supplemented or maintained by stocking. These waters are subject to catch and release only, fishing tackle is restricted (artificial lures and flies), and the open season is shorter to protect spawning trout in the fall (season closed after Labor Day).
