If you like to fish “back in”, grab your canoe or float tube and try fishing Pittsburg, NH's outer ponds. Tall Timber has rowboats at the dams of several outer ponds in northern New Hampshire for the adventurous fisherman.
To reserve a boat, go to the Lodge front desk and you will be provided with the boat key, oars, an anchor and PFDs. There is no charge for Tall Timber guests to use the outer pond boats. The ponds listed below all provide great brook trout fishing and wildlife viewing.
Open season on the outer ponds is the 4th Saturday in April through October 15th. The daily creel limit for trout is five fish or five pounds, whichever is reached first.
Terrell Pond Terrell Dam was built by Perly Terrell, who was a NH Fish & Game Warden. It is the west branch of Indian Stream and located approximately 12 miles north of the Lodge on Indian Stream Road. It is a beautiful drive along the stream and there is plenty of brook trout in the pond. Fly fishing only, no motors.
Coon Brook Bog is located approximately 10 miles from the Lodge. Head north on Route 3 approximately 7.8 miles and turn left on Coon Brook Bog Road, directly across Route 3 from Magalloway Road. Travel about 2 miles, turn left and you will come to the dam. A favorite of many fly fishers, Coon Brook Bog is fly fishing only, and motors are not allowed. Try stripping a Soft Hackle Pheasant Tail, a Partridge & Yellow or an “88”.
Round Pond is approximately 5 miles north on Route 3 from the intersection with Beach Road. Head north on Route 3 and turn left on Round Pond Road and follow the signs for the boat ramp. This pond has General Rules and motors are allowed. Round Pond is the deepest of all the outer ponds and produces good early season brook trout fishing.
Big Brook Bog is located approximately 12 miles from the Lodge. Travel one more mile past the turn for Coon Brook Bog, and turn left on Big Brook Bog Road. Travel about 2.5 miles and you'll come to the bog on your right. The dam at Big Brook Bog was recently fixed a couple of years ago and has become popular once again among fly fishers. Big Brook Bog is fly fishing only and motors are not allowed.
Scott Bog is fly fishing only and motors are not allowed. This bog is located north off of Route 3. After the Second Connecticut Lake boat launch, take the next right, which is East Inlet Road, approximately 13.4 miles north from the Beach Road intersection. After the bridge, go left and travel approximately 3 miles. You will come to a fork in the road, take a left and follow the boat launch sign.
East Inlet, which is the east inlet to Second Connecticut Lake, has General Rules and motors are not allowed. Follow the directions to East Inlet Road above, except take a right after the first logging bridge. East Inlet will come in to view in approximately 2 miles. In addition to the brook trout fishing, this is a great bog to kayak or canoe and the wildlife viewing is outstanding. Sightings of moose, deer, waterfowl, loons and otters are common. Fishing East Inlet Brook can be quite good below the dam and down stream as well. Try skittering a Hornberg or Elk Hair Caddis on the surface to entice a brookie to strike.
