CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - The lakes are still icy, but there’s enough open water for fishing salmon and trout on the season’s opening day in New Hampshire.

Wednesday is the start of the season for landlocked salmon and lake trout fishing.

The Fish and Game Department manages 14 lakes for landlocked salmon. It also advises anglers to check out the Winnipesaukee River, which flows through the Weirs channel into Paugus Bay, and through the Lakeport Dam/Lake Opechee area.

Other areas include the Winnipesaukee River through Laconia to Dixon Point at Lake Winnisquam, and Lochmere Dam at Silver Lake.

The department says it looks like “ice out” in the central lakes region will happen in late April and in North Country lakes a good week and a half after that.
