I used a small 12' john boat w/9.9 on it. There is a boat launch just out of merrimac downstream from that big island. Cant remember how to describe how to get there. I havent duck hunted in NH in 12 years. But There are signs telling you where it is. Its just out of town on the way to zylers maybe 1 mile out of town.

A canoe, maybe. If you can find a place to launch right across from one of the island you could do it. The island is about a mile up river from the boat launch. NOTE please be VERY VERY careful. There is alot of current in that area. Its a dangerous area this time of year. Make sure your wearing a PFD.
