Location Details: Lake Waukewan is a 928-acre (3.76 km2)[1] water body located in Belknap County in the Lakes Region of central New Hampshire, in the towns of Meredith and New Hampton. The town of Center Harbor occupies part of the lake's northern shoreline. Water from Lake Waukewan flows past the Mill Falls Marketplace in Meredith to Lake Winnipesaukee. A good smallmouth fishery exists at Waukewan Lake, a water once managed for salmon. Annual stocking of salmon, began in 1954, was discontinued in 1964 because the lake’s limited supply of deep water made it more suitable to bass management. A recent survey by the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department revealed a good distribution of bass, with many large fish and an abundant supply of crayfish for bass food. The rocky, gravelly bottom of Waukewan is well suited for smallmouth bass nesting and anglers fishing here will observe many nests along the shore. The Fish and Game Department is considering stocking Waukewan with Splake or Brook Trout and this is something anglers might want to watch for. Waukewan Lake is also known for some decent Burbot(aka Cusk) fishing. It is now one of the few lakes/ponds in New Hampshire where Cusk fishing devices are allowed due to the 2009 rule changes. Average ice-out is in late April. The Meredith New Hampshire area is truly the heart of the Lakes Region and also serves as the latchkey to New England's majestic White Mountains. Four seasons of outdoor fun and relaxation... boating, sailing, swimming, cruising, hiking, biking, camping, fishing, tax free shopping, antiquing, fall foliage viewing, skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, ice fishing, and more. This vacation destination offers a variety of accommodations, with lodging in inns and B&B's, motels and lodges, cozy cottages and efficiencies, spacious suites, rental homes and waterfront cabins. Be close to nature in a tent, trailer, RV or rustic cabin in one of the many campgrounds and parks. Dining choices are equally numerous, from country casual eateries to elegant gourmet restaurants.

5/21/2016-Here for some good trouting. Hooked a smart Rainbow that rolled and spit the hook 2 feet from boat. I spent 45 minutes in that cove trying to catch him but was outsmarted. very large and numerous holes, ledges and fine bassing also. Very few anglers, quiet lake as compared to Winni, good shoreline, not overcrowded by development. I will be back.
