Yesterday the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department completed its annual aerial stocking of remote trout ponds. Each year, Fish and Game contracts a helicopter to stock remote ponds, from the Sunapee Region to Pittsburg. During this one-day event, nearly 50 remote ponds are stocked with brook trout fingerlings from the New Hampshire Fish and Game Operated Hatcheries.
The stocking of remote ponds in the backcountry of New Hampshire provides a unique angling opportunity for those anglers seeking a true wilderness experience. Serene remote ponds not only produce beautiful brook trout with high catch rates, but also give the outdoor enthusiast an opportunity for wildlife viewing, hiking, camping or simple solitude.
