A Beautiful Day on the Pow Wow

Using Quiet Water New Hampshire and Vermont, 3rd: AMC's Canoe and Kayak Guide to the Best Ponds, Lakes, and Easy Rivers (AMC Quiet Water Series), the quest found a small marshy section of the Pow Wow River Between Country Pond (Newton NH) and Pow Wow Pond (Kingston).
The access is off the a road that had to be voted Worst Named by the NH Real Estate Association:

We saw a good deal of wildlife, including kingbirds, cormorants, great blue herons, northern water snake, and these usual suspects:

We chose this spot to seek out banded sunfish, but we now think the water was a bit big for them. We caught a zillion perch and some big golden shiners. Saw one largemouth bass in the shallows that was scary huge (we're going to need a bigger boat).

No new fish for the quest, but a great location and good day.


  1. Hey I live on the POW WOW. I think its great your crew went out on the river side. There, you see so much wild life. I grew up on the POW WOW seeing the beauty and serenity makes me feel great. Lets keep the POW WOW clean. If not for the sake of Kingston, let it be for the wildlife.....Roy

  2. Hey Roy
    Glad you liked this, the Pow Wow is fantastic as you know. And we agree keep it clean and bring out more than you take in.
