Concord, NH – With winter and a new year officially here, the January/February issue of the New Hampshire Wildlife Journal introduces readers and novice anglers to some basic ice fishing principles designed to help reel in a feisty fish common in Granite State waters—rock bass. While some may consider these fish invasive, rock bass put up a spirited fight and will strike at almost anything, making the species a fantastic target for new ice anglers. Excellent table fare, these pan fish make a great fillet or chowder.

Readers will also be captivated by the New Hampshire Wildlife Journal’s second photo gallery which showcases the state’s wildlife all through the seasons. A subscriber favorite, this striking collection of images submitted by our contributing photographers is the perfect way to share their talents and the beauty of the Granite State’s wild resources.

In our regular columns, On the Nature Trail author Lindsay Webb gets to know the barred owl which gets its name from the vertical striped pattern its feathers produce. What’s Wild explores snowshoeing opportunities throughout the Granite State and our popular Warden’s Watch column recounts the adventures of Conservation Officers in the field.
