Fishing At Squam Lake
AKA: Squam Lakes, Little Squam Lake
Fishing for largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, rainbow trout, lake trout, landlocked salmon, pumpkinseed sunfish, redbreast sunfish, white perch, yellow perch and chain pickerel at Squam Lake in New Hampshire.
Nestled in the Lakes Region of central New Hampshire, Squam Lake is a 6,700-acre lake with over 60 miles of shoreline. The lake consists of a main upper lake and a smaller lower lake (Little Squal Lake). A short natural channel between the two bodies of water allows boaters to travel between them. There is a public boat launch ramp on this connecting waterway. Fishing enthusiasts enjoy the pursuit of bass, trout, salmon, sunfish, perch and pickerel in this breathtakingly beautiful setting. The area is a great place for a fishing trip or a family vacation, and it is a great choice for ice fishing in winter. Smallmouth bass fishing is the main draw here, and at times is considered to be as good as smallie fishing gets. Lots of islands, creek channels, ledges, timber, drop-offs, rock and vegetation provide cover and ideal habitat in this clean, clear-water lake.
