Ice Fishing on Wild Goose Pond

This program will provide an introduction to ice fishing, including tip ups and other ice fishing equipment, ice safety, fish identification, and rules and regulations. Part of NH Fish and Game’s “Let’s Go Fishing” program, this workshop will give you a chance to give ice fishing a try — you do not need to have a fishing license or any equipment to participate. Led by Stu Stinchfield, longtime friend of Graylag and the stone mason responsible for much of our land art, this will be an in-person, hands-on event.

Where: Graylag Nature Preserve, 320 Clough Road, Pittsfield, NH. Meet at the Wild Goose Pond firepit.

When: Saturday, January 28, 2022 (weather and ice permitting)

Time: 9:00 am – 2:00 pm

Pre-registration required. For more information, call us at (603) 435-5555 or Email »


Participants must review and acknowledge these expectations as a condition of participating in the activity:

  1. All participants must follow current state and local guidance including existing or modified safer at home/stay-at-home orders. Graylag will cancel programming as needed if such guidance changes before the date of the event.
  2. All participants must maintain appropriate social distance by remaining at least 6 feet apart from other trip participants during the entire field trip except for participants from the same household.
  3. All participants must bring face coverings/masks that cover their nose, mouth, and chin, and wear them when they are unable to or do not consistently maintain a physical distance of at least 6 feet away from those not in your immediate household.
  4. Participants agree to stay home if you have a fever or any symptoms of respiratory illness, or if you have been in close contact (within 6 feet of for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period) with an infected person starting from 2 days before illness onset (or, for asymptomatic persons, 2 days prior to positive specimen collection) until the time the person is isolated.
  5. The CDC recommends that people at higher risk of severe illness should stay home and away from large groups of people as much as possible, including public places with lots of people and large gatherings where there will be close contact with others.
  6. Participants must contact Graylag if they start to show symptoms and/or test positive for COVID 19 within 3 days of the event to enable contact tracing.
