Fishing way up there, near Colebrook NH

In June I took a four-day fishing trip with three friends to Colebrook, NH. This location is way up into New Hampshire. Our travels took us to the origin of the Connecticut River, and we were driving very close to the Canadian border on occasion. We fished primarily the Connecticut River below the dam at First Connecticut Lake and the Androscoggin in Errol.

On the Androscoggin we were fortunate enough to hit the beginning of the alderfly hatch, as sample of which is pictured here. A size 12 or 14 Elk Hair Caddis is a very adequate imitation. I will be posting some pictures of the flies we used, later. What we caught were brown, rainbow and brook trout, and small stocked salmon.

Below are several pictures from the trip. It is hard to believe it from the pictures, but we had rain most of the time.
