Tall Timber, Pittsburg NH
It is two miles long and one mile wide with a primarily rocky bottom, averaging seven feet in depth, with the deepest point being seventeen feet. The lake has a lovely shoreline developed with private cottages and several commercial lodges.
Tall Timber's fleet of well maintained 14 foot fiberglass boats are equipped with 6 horse, 4 stroke Yamaha motors, a full tank of gas, PFDs and comfortable seating, ensuring an enjoyable day on the water.
"Ice Out" traditionally occurs from late April to early May and trolling the lake is the preferred early season fishing method. Fly fishermen usually have success trolling a sinking fly line with streamer patterns such as the Grey Ghost, Royal Coachman, Mickey Finn and all colors of Woolybuggers, while spin fishermen troll lures such as the Super Duper, Sutton Spoon and Mepps. Trolling a Lake Clear Wabbler with a trailing worm or night crawler can also be deadly. Live bait such as minnows and shiners are not allowed on Back Lake.
In the case of warm weather in May, expect some early dry fly fishing as trout cruise the shoreline, providing good fly fishing right in front of the Lodge. We have great mayfly and caddis hatches throughout the season. The Hexagenia hatch is the most anticipated hatch on the lake, occurring nightly from late June to mid July. You may not hear a more exciting sound than that of a hungry trout slurping down your fly on a mirror-like night just before dark!
Give Back Lake a try. It will soon become one of your favorite lakes to fish.
