The Connecticut River flows unabated here in northern New Hampshire. We’ve had our share of rain over the last month, and it looks like we’ve got more coming next week – still, the high flow can be beneficial, especially when you’re trying to catch a hefty landlocked salmon.

Lots of rain the last two days in Pittsburg, NH (and many other places in New England) brings us the three words that fishermen dread the most: “HIGH AND MUDDY”.
