View Full Version : Winni River by 93

I fished the Winni behind B.K. down to to the 93 bridge today. The cinniamon caddis hatch was incredible - birds(by the dozens) were getting most of them - fish were rising but hard to catch - there were browns, bows and chub - we only landed a few - that water is crystal clear and the holes are deep - it fishes best in mid June after several stockings - since it is so wide the fish do not get pulled out like they do in some of the smaller streams - check the water level before you go - if it is over 800 cfs forget it - it is best at 600 cfs or lower - what a great place for some special regs if they would ever do that!!!

Years ago, many years ago, the water from the I93 bridge down to Tilton was special regulations water. As I understand it, the State traded that stretch in order to establish the section in North Stratford on the Connecticut River as special regulations. Back in those days special regulations sections were very controversial.
If you think the section from BK's to the I93 bridge is nice water, you should look at the water from I93 down to Tilton. There aren't many nicer stretches of water in the state and why they don't renew that section as special regs I'll never know.

New Hampshire Fish and Game accepts input from residents on fishing regulations. If you really believe a particular stretch of water warrants special regulations, submit a request to Steve Perry, Chief of Inland Fisheries. There was a hearing on regulations submitted by the public last Wednesday night. It might be too late to get action for next year, but could be worth a try. You might consider requesting a delayed harvest zone: catch and release from October 15 to June 15 and general regulations from June 15 to October 15. This has been pretty successful on the Souhegan and Piscataquog rivers, which warm up considerably in the summer. I suspect that is the case with the Winni R.
