Area Fishing Report

Southeast NH/Merrimack Valley
For the past two weeks, I have been moving American shad trapped at the fish lift at
Essex Dam in Lawrence, M.A., on the Merrimack River. We are able to transport about
200 fish at a time with the Departments shad truck. You may have seen this truck, a
heavy duty flatbed Kenworth with its double circular tanks traveling up and down
Interstate 93 a lot lately. By the end of this week, we will have translocated about 2,000
shad up river around several of the dams on the Merrimack, and released in the Concord
area. The fish will spawn millions of eggs to carry on the life cycle of this important fish
species that helps transfer marine-derived nutrients that benefit the river ecosystem. You
can angle for shad in the Merrimack but as this species is under restoration, it is catch-
and-release only.

Most of our trout stocking in the region has wrapped up and as the surface temperatures
warm on our ponds and lakes, trolling flies or
spoons in the deeper water will produce better
than surface lures. On the warm water side,
bass have pretty much completed spawning
and can be tough to catch right now. Sunfish
are on nests and can be quite aggressive and
fun to catch on light tackle or fly rods using
surface poppers. I heard from an angler who did
quite well with the feisty bluegills in Great Pond
in Kingston using a small surface plug. Matt

Seacoast Area
Image removed by sender.Many people are getting their fill of striper fish action this year,
with a great abundance of schoolies around Fox Point in Little Bay, and at the inlet of
Sagamore Creek to the Route 1B Bridge in New Castle. Shane Conlin of Somersworth
reported success using poppers and stick baits at sunrise in Little Bay. When you head
out to New Castle for stripers, dont forget to pack your squid jig. Squid have begun
showing up under lighted areas at night in the Piscataqua. Squid make excellent striper
bait, especially when there are squid around. As they say, match the hatch. Fish in
general, and striped bass specifically, are most likely to take bait that matches what they
are currently feeding on, or an artificial lure that mimics it. Becky Heuss, Marine
Fisheries Biologist

Get Ready for Greenheads

Come mid-July, the dreaded greenhead flies commonly known as greenheads
descend upon the beaches of New England.

Greenhead flies, named for their large, bright green eyes, can be found in the
coastal marshes of Eastern North America. Unfortunately for us, that means they
love New Englands beaches.

Knowing about these pests can

help you plan your next beach trip
the safe way away from the
painful bites of greenhead flies.

Tabanus nigrovittatus emerges from

the salt marsh at summers

All salt marshes on Cape Cod

provide habitat for greenhead flies,
says Gabrielle Sakolsky,
entomologist and assistant superintendent at the Cape Cod Mosquito Control
Project. Our largest marshes, adjacent to the large barrier beaches of Sandy Neck
and Nauset, are the worst, because they have the largest amount of larval habitat.
There are no immune spots.
