Guide To Fishing At Lake Sunapee
AKA: Sunapee Lake
Picturesque Lake Sunapee is a 4,100-acre lake in the central part of the state, at the town of Sunapee. Over 30 miles of shoreline are available for fishing enthusiasts to explore. Public access to the shoreline for fishing from the bank, swimming and portage of kayaks and canoes is limited to just a few areas.
The Lake Sunapee Public Boat Launch, Sargent's Marina and Bob's Beacon Marina are options for launching pontoons, pleasure boats and all types of fishing boats. Excellent fishing attracts anglers that enjoy catching bass, trout, sunfish, perch, salmon and pickerel. Big bass, trout and salmon are the primary targets for serious fishing enthusiasts. The shoreline is dominated by private boat docks with rocky banks scattered in between. There are islands, creek channels, ledges and gravel beds all around the lake providing ideal habitat for the fishery. Sunapee Lake is also a very popular ice fishing destination in winter.
