Our Territory

Our territory is Coos County, New Hampshire's largest county. There are almost 2000 square miles. The area has the lowest density population of anywhere in New Hampshire averaging just 16 people per square mile. This is the home of the Deadwater wilderness, the famous Androscoggin and Connecticut Rivers, and more.  That means lots of wildlife to explore and fortunately, we have already done that for you; we know the area well, where the big trout are lurking, where the birds are and where bear and moose hang out..

Drift Fishing

Drift Fishing Drift Fishing Drift Fishing Drift Fishing

Drift fishing the Connecticut and Androscoggin rivers offers some great scenery and some big fish. Fly fishing from the drift boat seems to be the favorite among guests, however it is legal to use spinning gear. The past years have been very productive our biggest fish on a fly this year was 8lbs. The 2-3 lbs fish were in good numbers, we also took nice fish on dry fly’s during the early morning and evening hours.

Our drift boats hold one or two fisherman comfortably, all day trips include a shore lunch and beverage. Any questions contact us @ (603) 538-9806 or

The salmon run starts in may usually when ice out accurse, generally the second week in May. This year was great we caught salmon for a solid 3 weeks, we had good weather throughout the run with some rain and snow thrown into the mix witch you can see in the picture to the right on the wade fishing page. IT is important to have the right gear because it can be cold in the AM hours and warm up around mid day to about 50 degrees. IF you hit the salmon run at the right time it is fast and furious fishing.
