Ellis River Fly Fishing

The 6th most popular fly fishing river in New Hampshire.

North of North Conway near Jackson in the Mt Washington Valley, the Ellis River is known for its fly fishing in pocket water and pools. The Ellis River starts up at Pinkham Notch and ends down at the confluence with the Saco River. The best fishing is either early or late season since the river heats up. This river is well-stocked, and is known for its rainbow trout and brook trout.

The main fishing area is from the covered bridge in Jackson down to the Iron Railroad Bridge in Glen. This is a medium freestone stream known for its brookies and rainbows. There is a daily brook trout limit of two fish.

Overall, Ellis River is the 6th most popular fly fishing river of all 19 fly fishing spots in New Hampshire.
