Anglers can learn about the New Hampshire landlocked salmon fishery by attending to a free program on Friday, April 8, at 6:30 p.m., at the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department, 11 Hazen Drive, Concord, N.H.
Inland Fisheries Division Chief Steve Perry and Large Lakes Fisheries Biologists Don Miller and John Viar, will talk about the landlocked salmon fishery.
An important discussion will involve the Landlocked Salmon Anglers’ Pledge – a cooperative, volunteer effort to help sustain quality landlocked salmon fisheries in New Hampshire’s large lakes, such as Lake Winnipesaukee. Pledge brochures as well as promotional decals will be available free of charge.
A key component of the Anglers’ Pledge includes learning and applying proper handling and release techniques in order to reduce landlocked salmon mortality.
