Default Nuts!!!!

I agree with UPS and skilly. No real reason to close the season. Just as the fishing gets good in the ponds in the fall, they close the season to chase hunters? Get with the program people TROUT* DO NOT SPAWN IN PONDS and don't spawn much of anyplace else south of the mountains. Enforcement on FFO areas is a joke anyway so were is the problem here? The bait chuckers sneaking in to the FFO's don't have a problem fishing in the fall, why should we??

Default Go South Young Man

As Horace Greeley, a famous New Hampshirite once said - "Go South Young Man" - or was it "West" ? - in any event the trout fishing is better over the border & the autumn striper blitz in Massachusetts will pick up soon after Earl passes.

I too heard that the northern guides screwed us over on the year round fishing season. I think a state biologist alluded to that several years ago at an MFFA meeting. Well the heck with those guides - the deer populations in southern NH are booming compared to the north where those guides are.

Just my $0.02

Default guides

I can't think of a good reason why those guides where against longer open seasons. These where very good people that I respect in the fly fishing comunity here in NH. I would think they would jump at the chance for more business. I just can't buy in to the resource conservation argument. I must be the old school tradition "thats the way we have always done it" thinking. It packs the few open waters with fishmen. I should be happy that we have a few great places to go here in the southland like the Lamprey and the Merrymeeting.
