Exploring: Chocorua Lake

Mount Chocorua

Spencer is getting into fly fishing so yesterday we set out to find a place where he could catch a rainbow trout or two. There are tons of great fishing spots along the Saco River, which is pretty close to our house, but all the access areas are privately owned and therefore nearly impossible to go to for free. Spencer asked the owner of a local fly fishing store where to go and he pointed us to Chocorua Lake in Tamworth, New Hampshire.

Chocorua Lake is very close to the popular tourist destination, North Conway, it's just a little more tucked away than other local attractions. Mount Chocorua reflects over the lake, and honestly no photos do it justice. The area is very well taken care of by the Chocorua Lake Conservancy and has lots of benches and rocks to sit on by the water. Spencer was fishing for about an hour and since fishing is about as interesting to me as stamp collecting, I sat by the water reading and admiring the view. I also saw a cute little otter swim by! Unfortunately for Spencer, he didn't catch any fish but at least we found a beautiful place to visit again in the future!
