It's April and the start of fishing season. Fishing is something that my whole family enjoys (well, except for my wife). What is your favorite fishing spot and why?

For the record my favorite spot is Smith Pond in Washington where the fishing is great right from the shore. In the Spring, you can catch good sized trout and in the summer the kids enjoy pulling in one perch right after the other.

I would always catch my limit at Hot Hole Pond in Loudon. I also had good luck with brookies on the Lamprey River. Bass and Perch were the catch on Lake Massabesic, Auburn. The Baker River, aka Asquamchumauke, Rumney is a joy to fish.

I currently only fish catch and release....used to eat them, but don't anymore.

I love fly fishing and tie my own flies all winter long as a hobby. I have a new batch of muddlers all ready to go. The most fun fishing was, believe it or not, the Merrimack River in Concord. I caught a bass on a muddler fly and he fought me all the way to the shore. Good size too, but just covered with parasites....

Grew up not to far from Stonehouse Pond so it has always been a favorite of mine.You're right NewNHguy, your smack dab in the middle of some of the best fishing around.
