About the Connecticut Lakes Region
Located at the very northern tip of New Hampshire, the Connecticut Lakes Region is the headwaters of the mighty Connecticut River. Rising at the height of land on the US / Canadian border at 2400′ above sea level as a tiny rivlet, the pristine waters begin their 400 mile journey to Long Island Sound. The Region features a chain of lakes, the Connecticut Lakes, along with numerous brooks and streams. The Connecticut River flows between the lakes and merges the tributaries. The northern most lake, Fourth Connecticut Lake, is not a lake at all. A small bog bears the name. Access Fourth Lake from the US Customs parking lot in Pittsburg NH. From Fourth Lake, a brook drains to Third Connecticut Lake. The 110′ deep Third Lake features a boat launch and is home to rainbow trout and lake trout. Access Third Lake from US Rte 3 just one mile south of the US / Canadian Border. From Third Lake, the stream-sized Connecticut River flows through a heavily timbered forest to the marshy impoundment of Moose Fall Flowage. Flowing over a small dam, the river continues into Second Connecticut Lake. Home to a heron rookery, access Second Lake from Idylwilde Road, just off US Rte 3. Flowing from the dam on Second Lake, the fledgling Connecticut River gains in size. Brook trout and landlock salmon call this stretch of river home. A small waterfall known at the “Falls in the River” is an easy hike on the Cohos Trail. First Connecticut Lake is the largest in the chain. With depths to 160′, First Lake is home to lake trout and salmon.

Keep this page bookmarked to keep up with the snow as it falls. Then, as the snow melts in the spring, ice leaves the big lakes and spring fishing begins. Ice out occurs in late April or early May annually. Keep an eye on this page in the spring to watch the ice go out!
