Support the Pittsburg Anglers Association!

Our Mission

Formed in 2015, the Pittsburg Anglers Association is a fishing community devoted to the enhancement of fishing opportunities on the Connecticut River in Pittsburg, N.H. The primary focus of our endeavor is the Upper Connecticut River’s “Trophy Stretch”, one of New England’s premier trout and salmon fisheries, as well as a destination for many visitors to our area.

“Fished the Trophy Stretch June 10th thru 13th – had a great time and success. Keep up the great work and cause. Much appreciated.”

Supplemental trout stocking of the Trophy Stretch will be our most important work to improve the angling opportunities on this section of the Connecticut River, and stocking will take place primarily in May each year, prior to the start of the regular stocking schedule of the N.H. Fish & Game Department. To this end, the Pittsburg Anglers Association will rely on fiscal support through donations from our business and individual partners.

We will once again stock the Connecticut River’s “Trophy Stretch” this May and hope to have your support this season.

Our planned stocking date is Sunday, 5/12/19, but if river conditions are not cooperating,

we have a backup stocking date of Sunday, 5/19/19.
