browns in ossipee look like browns, pretty easy to id, in other lakes they look so similar that ive seen game wardens mix them up until they looked thoroughly. ossipee puts out some really nice brown trout with really good color
Does Ossipee get busy on the weekends? How is the boat launch?
Ossipee gets 1500 salmon and 1500 bows per year
great info Joe, will have to try that lake again. I have launched there before when I had my Starcraft but it was back about 8 or 9 years ago. I have a boat that has a hard top now and not sure if there was a bridge that you have to sneak under to get to the main lake. Are there any other launches on the lake that would work out better?
I'll be there from this Wed til maybe Sunday. If you'd like to come with me one of those mornings, you can hop on my boat. I'll show you where to fish. You can launch at my place at another time, but I have to be there to let you in. Let me know. Joe
Pines River is an inlet also. The only outlet is at the dam, which is the beginning of the Ossipee River, which flows into the Saco.
They don't stock browns there. Ossipee has a self-sustaining population and only one of two or three lakes in NH to have them. They drop down from the Bearcamp River where they are stocked as 10 inch fish. They head up river and spawn in the fall. John Viar has witnessed them spawning as far as 3 miles upstream from the lake. They are absolutely gorgeous specimens.You don't get many, but when you do, it's usually a good fish. I've gotten them close to 5 lbs.
