Fishing the Great North Woods of New Hampshire with David Kolesar


Using Errol New Hampshire as a base of operations this presentation will take the audience to the upper Androscoggin River, the Dead Diamond watershed and some of the numerous lakes and ponds.

Famous for its place in New Hampshire’s logging history the Androscoggin River is now a popular fly fishing destination and is one of the few rivers in New Hampshire that can be fished from a drift boat.

The presentation will discuss when the best time to fish these waters is and what flies work best at different times of the season.

David Kolesar is a licensed New Hampshire fly fishing guide and a partner in New Hampshire Rivers Guide Service and the Northeast Fly Fishing School. He spends the fishing season guiding anglers throughout New Hampshire with excursions to Massachusetts and Connecticut. Drift boat operations are conducted on the large rivers of northern New Hampshire.
