Fish & Game To Talk Bass and Bass Tournaments at The Squam Lakes Association

HOLDERNESS — New Hampshire Fish & Game will talk about Bass and Bass Tournaments at The Squam Lakes Association on Wednesday, June 25 from 7 pm to 8:30 pm

Squam Lake is nationally known as a productive lake for bass fishing. The quality of the fishery brings both pleasure and challenge. Loon populations are at risk from lead jig use, an issue addressed last year with the result of lead being banned from New Hampshire lakes effective in 2016. Different folks ply Squam for these fish with different expectations, and this can lead to conflict. The Squam Lakes Association is working in partnership with Fish and Game to find ways to reduce issues and ensure a high quality fishery and high quality experiences for all.

Overall, populations are strong and reproduction is high for these popular sport fish. NH Fish and Game biologist Gabe Gries will discuss tournaments- how they are scheduled and managed and monitored, bass population management and all things bass at the SLA Fisher Family Barn on Wednesday, June 25 at 7 pm.
