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.
