This beautiful Connecticut River brown trout was one of two caught and released by our guest Rich MacNeil on New Years Day. In addition to being one of the best anglers that we see at the lodge on a regular basis, Rich also takes wonderful photos as well, and this is another of his greats.Read More

Yup, it’s over – in fact, it’s been nearly a week that we reeled up and put away the flies for the 2015 fishing season. It was a good one – water flows were generally good, and NH Fish & Game did a nice job in stocking some nice trout.
Tall Timber’s fly fishing guides Angus Boezeman and Dave Poole got out there on the Connecticut River’s Trophy Stretch to close out the season, and made the most of their time out there, landing some beautiful landlocked salmon.
Enjoy the pictures – we won’t see salmon again for at least a few more months.
Thank you to everyone for joining us for some fishing this season – it was great to see many old friends, and make some new ones too. We’re looking forward to 2016 already!Read More

I would love to regale you with excuses (i.e. taking “the stroll” down the aisle, getting the dogs ready for the upcoming grouse hunting season, etc.), but I know that you’re fishermen (and women), and no excuse will do.Read More
