Canaan Street Lake is a 303-acre (123 ha) water body located in Grafton County in western New Hampshire, United States, in the town of Canaan. It is part of the Mascoma River watershed, a tributary of the Connecticut River. A portion of the lake's shoreline is occupied by the Cardigan Mountain School
Canaan Street Lake is easily accessible from a free town-owned gravel launch site on the western side of the lake. The shoreline of this natural body of water is spotted with homes and summer camps, but it is mostly wooded. Ice-out usually occurs around the 3rd week of April. Rainbow Trout have been stocked here in recent years and provide a good spring and winter fishery. Fishing for warm-water species is good over the entire body of water, but it is resrticted in the far southeast cove which supplies the towns drinking water. Anglers should have no problem catching any of the warm-water species. The fish may not be large, but they are abundant. Ice-fishing is also excellent here and the fishing pressure is very light. Access is provided by a town-owned gravel launch. The Lake consists of inlets, channels, shoreline brush and coves.
The ranking score is used to determine how "popular" a trip or location is. It is calculated based off of a weighted average of the number of reviews and the user ratings. For example, a location with 2 reviews and an average rating of 5 will have a lower "ranking score" than one with 10 reviews and an average rating of 4. This is because even though the first location has a better average rating, it has not been reviewed as much as the second location, so it is not as "popular". In the future we may modify the ranking score to take in additional factors, such as the number of views, comments, and photos.
