Stream and Lake Destinations - Upper Connecticut River, New
Hampshire
The Upper Connecticut River in northern New Hampshire is one more beautiful trout
stream. It is also quite different from the ones we fish in the Southeast even though
it appears to look very similar in the pictures you will see. Like many northern trout
streams, they are either running though a series of natural lakes or small man make
lakes and reservoirs. They are not the large, typical TVA type lakes. Most of them
don't even have turbines or generate electricity. The upper part of the Upper
Connecticut River flows through three lakes called the Connecticut Lakes. It is a
tailwater but it you would be hard pressed to know it by its looks in most places.
