Fishing

Where’s the best fishing?

Whether you’re trying to catch bass, salmon, or trout, your best bet is to try a guided fishing tour.

Or check out the State of NH’s Fish and Game Department guide to Lakes Region fishing, including Lake Winnipesaukee.

If you’re just looking for supplies, Paugus Bay Sports Shop (603) 524-4319, located at 135 Weirs Boulevard in Weirs Beach, carries everything for fishing, from rods and reels to lures and bait. You can even puchase your NH fishing license there.

You can rent a fishing boat at Fay’s Boat Yard (603) 293-8000 in Gilford or at Wet Wolfe Rentals 603) 569-3200 in Wolfeboro.
