After watching the reconstruction of Upper Dam, I think everything is fair game.

I never found profile to be an appealing place to fish. Broodstock, air brakes and Harley pipes don't really blow my hair back.

Sounds just like the Quimby fiasco from northern maine. Already a done deal before it was even put to debate.

Now there are going to be people constantly asking while you fish, "There are actually fish in here?" lol. Then they will proceed to run to the car and grab their spin rod

Default Poachers access

All that thing is going to be is poachers access. I'm just pissed beyond reason. The place is noisy and poached regularly but the water is cold and full of big ones. It may be the best Brookie fishing in the state for big fish. All stocked but that's what we have.
I do believe it's a done deal. The hearings and permits are just for show. They will trot out some advocate for the handicapped and counter any objection by asking why we hate them. Perfect polical move my another fool that runs this place. If you or I tried to put a 20 foot permanent dock on our shoreline propert it would be impossible. Mitt dredged out a marina in front of his waterfront palace in Wolfboro in clear violation of state law. No one stopped that either. Screw him and that lying POS at DRED too.

I wonder if they'll have ADA-compliant casting platforms like they do at Archery and Hot Hole?

Default Boardwalk on concrete blocks PROPOSED for Profile Lake, Franconia NH

https://www.boston.com/news/local-ne...mountain-plaza

A VERY BAD IDEA:
A boardwalk constructed on concrete blocks in the water of Profile Lake is being proposed by the Old Man of the Mountain Legacy (Fund) Committee. I believe there may be public hearing soon about this sad project idea.

Why ruin a beautiful and scenic shoreline of such an important lake? "The Pemigewasset River's headwaters are in Profile Lake in New Hampshire’s Franconia Notch State Park, at the base of the famed Old Man of the Mountain. The river cascades through the park where crystal clear waterfalls and elevation drops, such as the Flume and the Basin attract thousands of visitors each year." I do not believe these "Disneyland" ideas to make natural scenic areas more accessible is in the best interests at all for the White Mountains. What a shame if this idea comes a reality. Profile Lake in spite of being adjacent to the Route 93 Parkway is still a gem just the way it is...unspoiled and a unique (fly fishing only) destination that I and others I have enjoyed for many years. I can't help but believe that constructing such a boardwalk in the water will not have a negative impact on the lake visually and environmentally. The Headwaters of NH's beautiful and important rivers should be left as they are and not jeopardized in such a way.

I love fishing but not more then "kayaking. I hope some day we go together for a tour.

Default Status?

So I was up at Profile on Saturday - fished a couple hours, nothing on streamers, but there was some sporadic surface activity and I managed to get one and a few missed on a BWO (surface temp was 62 F). There was no sign at all of work on the proposed "boardwalk" - according to the plan it was supposed to be completed by now. Anyone hear anything about the status on this?


After Profile I moved down to the Pemi working downstream of the Basin and got a bunch on a small green stimulator - including a couple in the 8-9" class. Lots of hikers out on a beautiful warm day.
