Well I used to keep my mouth closed and life was good but since the cat is out of the bag.......the upper Connecitcut River near Pittsfield is thought of as Blue Ribbon water and I think Orvis now has a shop there and there are guides- the whole deal. I'm not sure why NH doesn't have better trout fishing than it ought to- all the ingredients seem to be there. Maybe the acidity of the streams- not sure.

Guided trips in Pittsfield? really?????? What a shame! I figured it took so long for folks to reach that area, that it would be safe for a long time. I can't believe that they stocked the rainbows the way they did in the 90's and more or less have destroyed some prime NATIVE brook trout water.

Crazy dark water on some of those sections...........Brookies black as coal on top and fire orange/red on the bellies. The real brookies anyway.....

I have experienced some great fishing in the Pittsburg area and I certainly hope it does not get over crowed. Much further south in western NH is the Sugar River. Except for last year's visit that river has always produced some good trout. There is a very nice fly fishing only stretch, the 2 to 3 miles below the old bridge was good fishing. The Androscoggin River was also pretty good the one time I went there. Profile Lake in Franconia Notch has some big brookies as well. I feel like I could go on and on. I might even mention my all time favorite NH brook tour pond which is............

Don't kid yourself, there's been guided fly fishing in that area since they built the railroads

Lake Wentworth for Smallmouth Bass . Clousers and crayfish patterns and the possibility of a 5pm plus SB.
