CONCORD, N.H. -- New Hampshire anglers can now access 166 depth maps of the state's lakes and ponds from the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department website. Developed from N.H. Department of Environmental Services lake survey data, the depth ("bathymetry") maps cover a large portion of the state's waterbodies and can be an important tool to help both expert and rookie anglers have a great day of fishing.
While they are not recommended for navigational use, the maps can help anglers find the sharp dropoff points and other rapid changes in water depth where there is a rich abundance of fish during warm summer months. In addition to providing depth measurements, they also include species lists, access information, and road systems in the surrounding area.
The maps are available free of charge and in an easy-to-download electronic format at
The data used to create the maps is not currently available for all lakes and ponds in the state. However, as depth data for additional lakes and ponds is generated by N.H. Department of Environmental Services survey crews, maps of those waterbodies will be developed and posted to the Fish and Game website. Keep a lookout for maps of your favorite fishing spots!
