Location Details: Located in the rugged mountains of Durham, Merrymeeting Lake has long enjoyed an excellent reputation as an outstanding lake for Trout, Landlocked Salmon and Smallmouth Bass fishing. Sometimes overshadowed by large Lake Winnipesaukee, Merrymeeting Lake is often overlooked by anglers unfamiliar with it's fine fishing. Average ice-out date is late April, which is the best time for anglers to fish for Trout and Landlocked Salmon. The water is cool and the fish stay close to the surface in the spring so the Landlocked Salmon and Trout may be taken close to the surface on light tackle. Popular methods of taking these fish include, trolling streamer flies, sewed-on Rainbow Smelt and small silver or gold spoons. Anglers catching the trout or salmon with a trolled streamer flies on a fly rod will have plenty of excitement. Merrymeeting Lake also has a good population of Smallmouth Bass which may be taken as the water warms in the spring. The water transparency exceeds 22 Ft. and aquatic vegetation is scarce. Shoreline development is moderate. There is a boat ramp on the southwestern side of the lake near the dam.
