Fishing on Lake Winnipesaukee Summer 2019

In the spring of 2019 I had the idea to find a fishing charter service to catch Landlocked Salmon in Lake Winnipesaukee. I did some research and decided on Salmon Patrol Charters out of Guilford, NH.

The first trip on June 16th, 2019 was fantastic! Chris and I caught a couple nice salmon in the high teens to low 20 inch range.



Jack caught a nice fat Rainbow Trout somewhere in the high teens for length.


We went again on August 4th and got to enjoy a beautiful sunrise in addition to some great fishing. I made a panorama of the sunrise from three different photos.


Johnny’s friends Carter joined us for this trip. We had great luck fishing and landed some nice fish.

During the August 4th trip, Captain Parent had mentioned that he was booked every day for the month of August. So I felt fortunate when he sent me an email about a week later asking me if was interested in a charter on August 17th that had opened up due to a cancellation. I immediately said yes. Jack and Johnny could not join me for this trip so Carter and his dad, Jeremy, came along instead.

Despite a weather forecast that mentioned clouds and showers, it was a beautiful morning on the water.


We got our first bite about 15 minutes after leaving the dock.








I’m looking forward to more trips in 2020!
