It’s good in all of Maine and Massachusetts (salt).
The rule is in the NH Saltwater Digest under ‘Reciprocity’.

Even the streams

Some of the streams are also too warm.
Look at the USGS temps and flows for the Wild River:

Boots, etc.

I'd go with Simms boots.
I also have a pair of Korkers that I have no complaints about as long as I use the felt soles. The rubber soles are worthless, dangerous even, in my opinion.

Merrymeeting

A couple of weeks ago it was 74°.
I caught chubs and perch, nothing else.

Glad you had fun

I've never had much luck with the Zealand either.
The area around the golf course at the hotel usually is good for some brookies, as you found.

That would depend on whether you want to fish a lake or a stream.
I'm not a real fan of lake fishing, so I'd likely stay with the Ammo.
The upper Pemi can be fun, but the Ammo would offer more...

I'd go with the Ammonoosuc if all you have is a few hours.
It's one river, but with some very different parts. You can choose what kind of fishing you'd like to do.

Stripers

They're definitely in.
I haven't had much luck in Hampton Harbor.
Plum Island is good everywhere from what I've heard.
I've had better luck in southern Maine than in NH.

Ticks & Lyme

How did you know you had it?

I've had it. Just got achy all over.

But I've had false alarms, too.

What were your symptoms?

Too true

You couldn't be more right.

Yesterday I even had them under my socks, socks that had an elastic top.

Tippet

I'm in the 'as heavy as you can get away with' camp.
Heavier tippet makes it easier to land and release fish quickly.
I'll use really light tippet if that's the only thing that works, but only then.

Rain

I love fishing in the rain.
In the mountains watch for lots of water suddenly, and thunder/lightning.
Any type of fly seems to work, not just nymphs.
Go for it.

Some of the rivers look close to normal.
The Saco looks very low. I hope that's because most of the snow hasn't melted yet.

Season

In southern NH and ME, the season was pretty short. I commented back in April that the water was low because of the lack of snow melt. I pretty much gave up on southern fishing by early May.

Even...

Lamprey

The part of the Lamprey that runs though my town is mostly not moving. Right after a rain there's a little flow, but it looks more like a long pond otherwise.

East Branch

I tried it about three weeks ago. Water, what there was of it, was cold enough, but no fish.

Fished below the Rt 112 bridge, and then farther down towards town - nada.

Something I've wondered about

I've often wondered about the numbers of small fish in mountains streams. In some cases there's a fish behind every rock, it seems.

Would those streams be better off with fewer fish? Would the...

Water temperatures can vary a lot through the day, especially in the mountains.

Look at the gauge on the Wild River to see what I mean: Wild River USGS Gilead Maine...

Old Sage

I you have or can borrow a 10 wt. line, give that a try.

I have a 9' 9 wt. VPS, which a lot of people say is really an RPL with cheaper fittings. It is quite happy with a 10 wt. line.

Lots of fish

It's like that in a lot of places right now as F&G finishes up its stocking program.

You could, if you wanted, catch 20-30 fish without moving your feet.

Very Nice

Nice fish and pictures.

Don't often see rainbows, brookies, and salmon on the same day in that area.

I fished it in Gilead a couple weeks ago.
Maine stocked a large bunch of rainbows there.
It was pretty warm then; I'm sure it's a lot warmer now. The Wild River, just before it empties into the...

Barbs

Yes.

At least it's hard without damaging the fish. It also takes longer to get a barbed hook out, which means more time out of the water, etc.

Unbarbed (or squashed barbs) will often just fall...
