Hope Eagleson, Contoocook River Fishing Guide

Welcome to Contoocook River Canoe Co. LLC  Kayak Fishing Adventures.  Whether you’re looking for a fun vacation activity or want to take your fishing experience to the next level, our guided fishing trips are crafted to be exciting and action packed.  Kayaks allow you to sneak up on feeding fish in a way that powerboats can’t.  Even if you’ve never fished before, our experienced guide will teach you the basics, so you can focus on catching fish.   The Contoocook and Merrimack Rivers lend themselves perfectly for fishing from a kayak and offer some of the hottest fishing spots in Central New Hampshire.  The Variety of fish include but are not limited to Large and Small Mouth Bass, Rock Bass, Chain Pickerel, White Perch, Black Crappie, Brown Bullhead and Bull Gill.
