SUMMARY :
The second leg of our two-day getaway featured fishing on beautiful Lake Pemigewasset set along route 104 between Meredith and New Hampton. The fishing started slow as we researched an intriguing skinny outlet but picked up big time when we found a couple of coves with heavy structure. Much like neighboring Wicwas, perch and pickerel dominated the catch. My brother had a togher time getting into numbers of fish on this outing but managed to land the big one - a beautiful two-pound pickerel caught on the troll back to the docks to end the day. That fish not only was the biggest fish of the day, but also the biggest fish all weekend.
