New NH State Boating Law Effective January 1. 2017

This important piece of legislation in my opinion has not been well circulated to the boating community.  boat on lake winnipesaukee - lake winnipesaukee homes for sale

When transporting boats between water bodies: ( NH RSA 487: 16-D ) 

All fragments of vegetation and animals must be removed before leaving the launch area. 

All drain plugs must be removed or in the open position when leaving the boat launch

Invasive plants and animals can impair the quality and health of our lakes. Once an invasive plant or animal takes hold they are expensive to manage and nearly impossible to eradicate.

Clean: All mud - plants - debris from your boat, paddles, and motor with special attention to your anchor line and chain. 

Drain: motor - ballast tanks - live wells - open all drain plugs and leave open while motoring. 

Dry your boat and rinse with water prior to launching into another lake.

Layman's Guide to NH Lake Quality

A question that comes up weekly, tell me about the water quality of the lake. We respond typically with the trophic index and the clarity of the water. The attached fact sheet is a layman's guide to water quality terms. 

Oligotrophic: Larger, deeper lakes with clear water, rocky or sandy shorelines, low phosphorus enrichment, limited rooted plant growth, low algal growth, and adequate dissolved oxygen throughout. Low productivity.

Mesotrophic: An intermediate category with characteristics between the other two groups. Medium productivity. Silver Lake Real Estate NH - Lake view

Eutrophic: Smaller, shallower ponds with mucky bottoms, extensive rooted plant growth and depleted dissolved oxygen in the bottom waters; often tea-colored and sometimes murky from planktonic algal growth. High productivity.

NH Lakes Milfoil Update

NH Lakes Milfoil Update 

Milfoil is Invasive Lake Weed l NH has effective mitigation solution

Sorry to say none of the NH lakes are immune to milfoil. This invasive plant needs sunlight to flourish so deep sections of our lakes are not affected.  Once milfoil takes hold the lake associations needs to set up a program and plan to manage the plants.  

Squam Lakes Association has worked to keep this plant in control working tirelessly each summer to keep the plant from spreading.  Big Squam and Little Squam fortunately have not seen a major spread of milfoil. Last year in the Squam River they successfully removed 3700 gallons of milfoil harvested by divers. The weed watcher crew looks for growth in shallow areas of the lake so the milfoil team can quickly react and mitigate the plant. 

Paugus Bay on Lake Winnipesaukee is in milfoil attack mode. In addition to harvesting plants after Labor Day a Milfoil Herbicide will be applied in the area of the Weirs Beach Bridge and Lakeport Landing Marina. Divers this summer using suction hoses will be busy vacuuming up the plant's roots and all to prevent further spread The Laconia city manager said a water flow study will be done to better help the application of the herbicide for best practices. 

The Department of Environmental Services has identified the “Frightful Fourteen” aquatic invasives that could take hold in New Hampshire. 

Seven of the 14 are known to already occur in the state:     Fish And Game Report on Milfoil 

• Variable milfoil (Myriophyllum heterophyllum) 

• Eurasian milfoil (Myriophyllum spicatum) 

• Fanwort (Caboma caroliniana) 

• Brazilian elodea (Egeria densa) 

• Common reed (Phragmites australis) 

• Purple loosestrife (Lythrum salicaria)

• Water chestnut (Trapa natans) 

A number of plants may resemble exotic species. Bladderwort, water weed (elodea), coontail, water marigold, and others can easily be confused with exotic species like milfoil and fanwort. The look-alikes have distinctive variations, however. Volunteers use weed identification sheets to help distinguish between similar types of plants.
