Trout fishing the Connecticut Lakes Region in Pittsburg, NH is truly a fisherman’s dream at Tall Timber. Angling opportunities range from casting on a remote pond to trolling Back Lake or wading the streams or upper Connecticut River. With an abundance of lakes, ponds and streams, you can fish new water each day.

Pittsburg is strictly a cold water fishery containing brook, brown and rainbow trout, lake trout and landlocked salmon, satisfying the fly fisherman and spin fisherman alike. For the latest news on what’s happening on our various bodies of water up here, please check out our frequently updated
“Fishing Blog”.

If it’s stream fishing you are most interested in, the "Fly Fishing Only" sections of the Connecticut River provide some of the best fly fishing in the Northeast. The "Trophy Stretch", a two and one half mile of riffles and pools, holds both trout and salmon.

Throughout the season and even in the heat of August, you’ll find phenomenal fly fishing due to a bottom release dam that provides clear, cold water all season.

Tall Timber has registered NH Fly Fishing Guides on staff, in addition to other qualified Guides that can be arranged for in advance.
