Closing Day for Trout Ponds in NH

I (Clay) was telling my daughter (Z) yesterday that trout ponds were closing for the year. She said "Let's go get a trout after school!"
As a good father, possibly going for father of the year, I said "Sure let's go."

 So after school we grabbed her best friend Nolan and her dad and we headed to Fall's pond on the Kankamagus Highway.
Rocky Gorge

After the short hike across the swift river and rocky gorge, we arrived at our fishing spot.

Chris (Nolan's Dad) was concerned that this pond would be fished out. I said "Have Faith My friend, I know where fish live!"

We set the kids up with a fishing pole a tiny hook, split shot and a little piece of worm. Our kids are 5 so sitting and waiting for a fish is hard work, so we attached little bells to the rod tips and the kids ran around and even played in the water while waiting.

We didn't have to wait long, within 5 minutes, the fish gods provided us with some very nice brook trout.

After some quick pictures these fish were released and will not see a hook again until the third Saturday in April, when we will return and catch them again. Happy Fishing
