Northern Water Guide



Wade and Drift trips

Wade trips are primarily focused on the Trophy Stretch of the Connecticut River located in Pittsburg NH, but we do offer wade trips on the Newfound, Cocheco, Ammonoosuc and Pemigewasset rivers as well.

Drift boat trips are offered as a full day session on the Connecticut river or half day session in the early morning or evening hours on local trout ponds in central NH.


Northern Water Guide Service is a fully insured and licensed guide service providing clients the opportunity to see what New Hampshire has to offer. Whether you’re an experienced fly fishermen seeking assistance on new water or new to fly fishing we are happy to assist you!

The founder, Nick Proulx, is a native to New Hampshire. Growing up in the Lakes Region, he was introduced to the art of fly fishing and fly tying at the age of ten. “Twenty-two years later, my obsession for the sport continues on. I have spent countless hours on back country ponds, small streams, and larger rivers trying to study and learn as much as I can about the fish I spend so much time chasing. Three years ago I met my wife Lindsey and had the opportunity to introduce and teach her how to fly fish, it challenged my ability to catch fish without holding a fly rod. My passion for teaching and fishing progressed into obtaining my guides license and created Northern Water Guide Service.”

Nick is currently a full time firefighter since 2007, he holds a state EMT license, CPR certified and is a NH state fire instructor where his teaching experience has given him the ability to offer practical instruction on the water to new and experienced fly fishermen.

Not only will you have a fun day on the water, but an educational one. Our package whether a half day or full day will include all flies, leaders, any gear you may need if you’re just starting out and photos of that special trip.
