Summer Activity Ideas...Fly Fishing

alt tag

The rivers of New Hampshire provide endless opportunities for the whole family to experience the sport of Fly Fishing; an experience you will never forget. Whether it is a drift boat trip for trout and salmon on a major New Hampshire river, such as the Androscoggin, Connecticut or Pemigewasset Rivers; a wading trip on a stream; or a canoe  trip to a pristine New Hampshire brook trout pond, you will have the opportunity to view wildlife, enjoy wonderful natural sights and catch some beautiful fish.  A day fly fishing for trout and salmon with a New Hampshire Rivers guide will enhance your vacation or help you relax on a trip to North Conway and the surrounding region.

The Ellis is a great river for beginners through advanced fly fishers. It is only a ten minute drive from North Conway, making it a great destination for fly fishers on a tight schedule. The river can be fished with little walking but does have sections that require some wading and rock hopping. Whether you are looking to cover water or find a good hole that you can fish all morning, the Ellis will accommodate you. Click Here For Trip Resources & Information.
