New Hampshire – Fishing on rivers and streams is like playing hide-and-seek with a little kid. Play the game a few times, and you’ll quickly discover there are only a handful of places to check. And just like giggling or a lump in a blanket are dead giveaways, most of the best fishing spots are obvious after a quick scan of your surroundings.

First, wade or hike away from heavily visited areas of the river to improve your number of bites and fish size. Then remember that the 80/20 rule usually applies to fish location in rivers. That is, 80 percent of the fish are located in about 20 percent of the river. Sure, you might catch a fish here or there by just randomly casting. But I typically find fish grouped in areas where the speed of the current or the depth of the water changes.

Where two currents come together, like below an island or where a creek empties into a river, there will be a visible seam where the stronger current meets the slower. Any spot where calm water borders swift is worthy of a cast.

Deep holes typically form in river bends as well, with slow-moving shallow water on the inside of the bend and faster-moving, deeper water on the outside of the bend. With a mix of shallow and deep water plus fast and slow currents that normally form an eddy — you guessed it — river bends are one of the best fishing spots.

Maine – Fish farming is an old agricultural method that modern homesteaders can use today. A great source of continuous protein, freshwater fish farms allow anyone to grow a different variety of fish that can be used for personal consumption.

While it may be hard work to get started, building a fish farm can be rewarding, fun, and can really pay off in the long run when you may not have a lot of money to spend on food. It could also be a good income source if you have other people around you who are in need of additional food.
