New Hampshire Trout Pond Opening April 27, 2013

Hello All

Here is a little story about our day of fishing on New Hampshire Trout Pond Opening.

For me the day started at 6:30am.  I was up and had breakfast and of at 6:45am.  Got some gas at Dunn Deal and coffee at Country Goods and Groceries.  I got to Hatch Pond in Eaton around 7:30am and had no idea that Keith and mark were already there.  Thjey had gotten there around 6:30am.  I met with Rich in the parking area and introduced myself and told him about the site.  He now is a member.  I proceeded down to the pond and discovered that Mark and Keith were already fishing and into a lot of fish.  So I proceeded down to the damb area of the pond, this is a very easy area to wade.  With a soft hackle fly I started catching fish.

They seemed to be everywhere.  Mark, Keith and Rich were all fishing from a float tube.  We fished the pond until 12 noon and tooka break and had lunch at the Eaton Country Store, we all had Turkey, Bacon and Cranberry sandwich's.  We now headed south to the the South River in Effingham.  Keith and I had great luck here but Mark was hard pressed to hookup with a fish.  In time we will get Mark going good on stream fishing.  Take a look at the slide shows of my pictures from both sites.

After my service time (4 years active) I went to collage and obtained a Masters degree in Forestry from UNH but never really worked as a forester other then to process data from other foresters using a program to calculate volume of standing timber. From there I became a self taught programmer in FORTRAN and have worked as a programmer for a manufacturing company then got into tech support now working as a test engineer for a small company that does contract work for Hewlett Packard. Lee's Fishing Page has grown from a simple site hosted by my internet provider to being hosted now by TotalChoiceHosting and being built with Geeklog and its many plugins. LFP is now on glFusion and I believe will be for the rest of time. I hope everyone likes the site and will contribute to it.

Looks like you guys had a good time.  If I wasn't sleeping I would have been there.

Nice write up Lee, the hats look great in that group shot by the way.

I just want to add that once again it was a great way to spend openning day.  Lots of fish and no crowds, and a very tastey lunch in between.

I ended up going back to Hatch Pond the following day, the fish were better educated but still plentiful.   I can't wait for our next get together, hopefully more members can attend.
