Location Details: The Lamprey is a truly exceptional river offering a vast variety of fishing. It contains every type of stream and river fish you could expect to find in New England. Undeveloped along it's entire length, except at Newmarket, It is a pretty river to be on and to fish. The state stocks the Lamprey River heavily with trout and there is good to excellent trout fishing in the upper parts of the river around the Wiswall Dam and Packers Falls, and in the tributaries of the North and Little Rivers.

The Lamprey also boasts excellent Bass fishing in it's lower reaches, especially in the waters just above Wiswall Dam to the head of the tidewaters in Newmarket. The section of Newmarket near Rt. 108 below Packers Falls is the best Pickerel and Bass ice-fishing spot in southeastern NH. This is a good section to float with a boat or canoe. Easy access is available off of many roads near the river. Saltwater Smelt is another Lamprey River specialty. In winter, Smelt ice-fishing is popular, especially below the Newmarket Dam. Smelt may be taken as soon as the ice forms through March. The Lamprey River also contains large numbers of White Perch which may be taken through the ice with the same tackle and bait used for Smelt. The best time to fish for White Perch is the winter or in early spring. There are many access points to the river and several places to park, buy bait and rent ice-houses in the area.

Some ristrictions for winter fishing but man this is the spot to be for your trout fishing. personally i like winter fishing the most for affect on the mind and the determination to catch some of the hardest fighting trout in the east
