Default Where to fish center tuftonboro area?

I'm going to be in the center tuftonboro area Saturday, and was going to bring my fly rod. I'm not familiar with the area at all. Is there someplace I can wet a line for a few hours?

Thanks

Maybe try the Swift and/or some of its feeder streams up by Tamworth and Heminway State Forest? I have had luck there ...

Was hoping for some place local, as I'm not sure how much time I'll have. but it looks like it's only about 30min to the swift, so I might be able to take a look up there.

Thanks ljgurke

I'm not 100% percent familiar with that area but I know for certain that if you go on google maps for 30 min you should find something. That area has a few streams I can see.

Hey offshore31!

This time of year there is nothing worth your effort in the tuftonboro area, it's all to warm by now and all of those low lying streams are full of chubs.

Do yourself a favor and head up to the swift in tamworth for some river fishing or if small streams are your thing any of the thin blue lines in that whole valley are definitely worth the time and effort to explore. Don't forget to bring your themomether and check the water first, things are rapidly heating up this week.

Thanks. I saw the 19 and 20 mile, and melvin, but was wondering if they'd be too warm. I don't have much time so I can't really search. Sounds like a quick trip to the swift

Thanks

Melvin, 19 mile and 20 mile are all too warm right now. Look at tributaries of the Bearcamp River in Sandwich that extend into the White Mountains and be prepared to hike. Hopper/Dropper setups work great. Foam terrestrial with nymph or san juan worm on the dropper or old school elk hair caddis with soft hackle. Enjoy the scenery and the cooler temps in these little valleys.
