For those of you who embrace the outdoor life style, a must visit should be to Hanover Outdoors. Located on 17 1/2 Lebanon Street in downtown Hanover, NH, they are the area’s premier outdoors and sporting goods retailer. They pride themselves on being the authority on fishing in the Upper Valley offering a licensed guide service covering the Dartmouth/Sunapee Region of New Hampshire and Vermont. You can arrange for a guide on the Mascoma and Sugar rivers in New Hampshire, the White, Ottauquechee, and Black rivers in Vermont as well as many small brook trout streams. Their web site offers an ongoing area fishing conditions update or you can call the store. They also hold fly fishing schools throughout the summer and fly tying schools during the winter. Make sure you give them enough lead time if a guided fishing experience is in your vacation plans – they have 5 in house guides and they can usually accommodate most requests if advance reservations are made. Don’t forget hiking – the Appalachian Trail runs right by their front door. They are one of the few locations where through hikers can restock without deviating from the trail – all A.T hikers are welcome. So stay at Breakfast on the Connecticut, make a visit to Hanover Outdoors and then take one of our canoes out on the Connecticut River especially in the morning when the river fog is starting to lift – life doesn’t get any better!
