A Misplaced Lakes Region Lake
Avatar of Bassmaster_201

In many aspects, Pleasant Lake feels like a lakes region lake, except it’s tucked away in southeastern NH. The main features of Pleasant is deep, clear water, sand flats, rocks piles, and plenty of docks. There’s good size for largies and smallies here, but the fishing can be extremely tough at times especially once the summer months roll around. The boat ramp and parking is pretty good. The only quirk being is you have to back your boat across the road.

Good for shore fishing
Avatar of Vlooksforfish

There is a trail that goes around the lake and lots of areas to fish from the shore. I've caught a few largemouth bass and bluegills here. There is a small parking space next to the Winchester Arms apartments and another parking lot across the street from market basket, next to the Monster Gas station.
