Default Pemigewasset River, NH

Hi all, first post here, glad to have found the place!

I'm going to try out the Pemigewasset River in New Hampshire this weekend, near Lincoln and North Woodstock. Any advice? Any flies you suggest? This is my first year fly fishing so I'm still pretty much going blind. I should probably get a guide eventually.

Water's pretty warm right now, you'd be better off up in the "wilderness" (Lincoln Woods) or fishing one of the ponds rather than anywhere off Rt3/175.
Try an attractor like a small Royal Wulff or humpy and small terrestrials such as ants and beetles

No luck in the river, you were right. Tried Echo Lake after giving up on that and we were hitting brookies very easily, on size 16 olive elk hair caddis.

I didn't have enough time to read up on Lincoln Woods, but will try to check it out next time!

That would be the upper east branch of the Pemi in the Pemigewasset Wilderness, accessed from the Lincoln Woods trail head off the Kanc.

I don't have much input as I haven't fly fished when I visited the area, but I must say that it is one of the most beautiful places I've been, I love north woodstock.

If your looking for a nice swimming spot or place to relax, look for mirror lake
I wish I was there right now...

Thanks, I'll take a look next time I go into that region! It was pretty close, relatively speaking.
