Trout Fishing / Moose Watch Millsfield Pond in Errol, NH
Enter NH Fishing Forum
During this trip, we stayed at a private
camp on Millsfield
Pond in Errol,
NH. As rainy weather was headed our way, we decided to continue with our trip.
This trip was originally scheduled for a Moose watch only, but seeing the
weather didn't look like it was going to cooperate, we brought our fishing gear
in hopes of making the best of bad weather.
On our first full day in Errol, we headed downtown to L.L.
Cote Sports Center, a great store on Main St. in Errol that offers just about
everything (ATV rentals, ATV sales, fishing gear, hunting equipment, boats,
food, convenience store, gas, clothing, just about everything you could possibly
need. L.L. Cote is a great place to visit. They have many stuffed animals on
display there, among them is a White Moose which is very interesting to see.
Locals go there for food. Visitors to Errol, NH go there for hunting, fishing
and camping supplies. I was tempted to buy a new ATV while I was at LL Cote's,
but was able to resist the temptation (until next time).
As the weekend progressed, we did find a few breaks in the
weather suitable for heading outdoors to go swimming and for a ride in the boat
to find the best trout fishing spots on Millsfield Pond. The person who brought
us fishing there knew all the good spots, one thing I did notice is that all of
the good fishing was all on the North side of the pond. I assumed it was because
all the camps there are on the South side of Millsfield Pond and the fish tend
to avoid the noise and commotion of this more populated area. Millsfield Pond in
Errol, NH is stocked with Brook Trout. To my knowledge, no other type of fish
lives in the Millsfield Pond. I have been fishing there a few times and have
never seen any other type of fish caught there.
One of the best trout fishing spots at Millsfield Pond is
on the North East side. There is a spring there that comes out of a white PVC
pipe. The trout tend to hang out close to that spring. Gold spinners seem to
work best. This area is no secret to the residents on Millsfield Pond, so you
may have to wait your turn to get your chance at catching your limit on Brook
Besides the fishing, we were also able to catch a glimpse
of a few deer, one mother deer with her young newborn and others in our group
saw a Moose with her young as well. Most of the sightings were seen around the
North side of Millsfield Pond in Errol.
we left on Sunday and began our journey back home, we did see a huge black bull
Moose standing on the side of Rt. 16 in Errol (picture on left, Moose is hiding
behind the trees and hard to see). Further down Rt. 16, we also came across a deer standing in
the river along Rt. 16. The area has a lot of wildlife.
Our rainy weekend turned out to be quite adventurous after
