represented in New Hampshire's 2012 Trophy Fish Program. In2012, three lake trout were caught and registered over 20 lbs. insize, quite a remarkable feat.Of the 83 entrants in 2012, 11 anglers (or 13%) were under 15 yearsold. And these kids are serious anglers! Justin Learn, an 11 year oldfrom Hillsborough, caught a 14 pound, 5.76 ounce northern pike atPierce Lake to win his category. Thirteen-year-old Drew Dunlap of Meredith just missed the win in the largemouth bass catch-and-re-lease category with a very respectable 24-inch largemouth caughton Lake Winnipesaukee. Nine-year-old Liam Hemmerling of En-field, ten-year-old Wyatt Lumsden of Milton, and two seven year olds, Katy Nowell of Braintree, MA, and Dominic DeClement of Hollis, N.H., all caught and released excellent largemouth bass fromlakes around the state. Samuel Bennett, age 15, of New Boston,caught and released a 15-inch black crappie. Congratulations to allthe entrants and winners for 2012. Grab the kids and get fishing for 2013!A complete listing of all entries, plus links to application forms,rules, records and winners from past years can be found athttp://www.fishnh.com/Fishing/trophy/2012.html.

investment, forward-lookingmanagement approaches, andenvironmental monitoring.The Commission’s 14 membersrepresented a broad range of per-spectives on water needs, use,and management. Only twomembers – the Director of the N.H. Fish and Game Departmentand I – represented state govern-ment agencies; the rest repre-sented municipalities and the private and non-profit sectors.The Commission reviewed pre-vious work, consulted with ex- perts, and conducted anextensive public participation process which included publicforums in six locations through-out the state.An overview of the Commis-sion’s findings makes it clear that there is no room for compla-cency:♦ New Hampshire residents rec-ognize the importance of water to their quality of life, but manyare asking for more informationabout their role in ensuring a sus-tainable water future for NewHampshire.♦ Residents are increasingly con-cerned about access to and con-trol of water and water supplies.♦ New Hampshire is experienc-ing declining water quality insome of our lakes, rivers and es-tuaries.♦ Extreme weather events are in-creasingly frequent, causing problems with water quality,stormwater systems, flooding,and the ability of water systemsto meet customers’ needs.♦ The state’s water infrastruc-ture, last extensively upgraded inthe 1970s and 1980s, is agingand increasingly inadequate tomeet present needs.♦ Water issues vary from one part of the state to another. Thereis no one-size-fits-all solutionthat solves problems from the North Country to the Seacoast.At the same time, although thequality of groundwater variesfrom place to place, private wellsthroughout the state should betested for naturally occurringcontaminants such as arsenic andradon and for manmade contam-inants such as MtBE so thathomeowners can take appropri-ate action to protect their fami-lies’ health.♦ Investment is needed to protectour water resources and maintainour water infrastructure if thestate wants to maintain its water-derived economic advantage.It bears repeating that the Com-mission felt that the water chal-lenges we face now and will facein the future are different thanthose of the past; therefore, it istime for a departure from the so-lutions of the past. Today’swater problems are more com- plex and require smarter ap- proaches and more resources toaddress them. The solutions re-quire the involvement of not juststate and local governments, but businesses, institutions, individ-uals, and the Legislature. Cleanwater, where and when we needit, is a renewable resource onlyif we manage it effectively. Weowe its care to our children andtheir children. The work must begin now.You can view the report on theWater Sustainability Commis-sion’s website,http://www.nh.gov/water-sus-tainability/.
