Whittemore Island Snowshoe and Free Ice Fishing Day

Saturday, January 21, from 9 a.m. to noon

Explore Whittemore Island on Thorndike Pond by snowshoe (or boots), followed by an ice fishing demonstration by Conservancy staff and fisherpeople, Rick Brackett and Jenny Zaso. Take advantage of New Hampshire’s Free Ice Fishing Day, which allows anyone to fish without a license, and try it out yourself! We will have all of the equipment and will help you if you’d like to try. You could also simply continue to explore the pond or island after the guided snowshoe, coming and going as you please. Snowshoe is 1.5 miles round trip. Coffee and snacks will be provided during the ice fishing demo.

Please note: This event is weather and ice conditions pending! Space is limited. Please RSVP by Jan. 19. You can also email Jenny for updates about weather and any event status changes.
