Even though the state capitol, Concord , and the states' biggest city , Manchester, are in the heart of the Merrimack Valley region there is still plenty of great fly fishing to be had. The Merrimack River is better fished from a boat south of Concord and has a wide variety of species to target. Other rivers such as the Souhegan, which flows from the Mass./N.H. border in New Ipswich to the Merrimack River in Merrimack, and the Contoocook in Henniker , which starts in the Monadnock Region and flows into the Merrimack as well, are just a couple of many places a fly angler can find to wet their lines.
