Winnisquam (Salmon-Fishing Place)

Winnisquam Lake: (an Abnaki word) for "salmon-fishing place", from winni (pond/water) and squam (salmon).

Winnisquam Lake is about 7 miles west of and is connected to Lake Winnpesaukee by brooks and streams running through Opechee "Bay" Paugus "Bay", in between. Winnisquam still contains naturally breeding "land-locked" salmon, though today is also stocked by the New Hampshire Fish & Game department. In 2010, 2416 land-locked salmon aged 1-year plus (250 pounds worth) were released in to Winnisquam from Loconia, as were also a number of rainbow trout.

BODY OF WATER  TOWN  SPECIES  SIZE  NUMBER POUNDS
2010 WINNISQUAM LAKE  LACONIA  Landlocked salmon 1+YR 2,416 250
2010 WINNISQUAM LAKE  LACONIA  Rainbow trout 1+YR 3,290 1,913

Land-locked (Salmo salar sebago) vs Atlantic Salmon (Salmo salar)
Sometimes called “landlocked Atlantic salmon”, some genetic differences account for the species name differentiation. The distinction is made primarily due to habitat and behavior rather than genetics. “Salar” is Latin for “leaper", which is a trait shared by both the landlocked and anadromous (migrating) salmon.  

During and flollowing the last ice age 11,000 years ago rising land and dropping sea levels isolated a number of New England lake systems from the sea, which accounts for the presence of salmon. Whether salmon were lierally trapped as “glaciomarine relicts”, or whether they simply stopped traveling to the sea (when it was still possible) is still being discussed by scientists.

Landlocked salmons originally discovered in four Maine lake systems—Sebago, Green, Sebec, and Grand, which perhaps were also known as local "Winnisquams". Load up the Winnebago (smelly pond) and let's go!

(derivaton of Winnepsaukee is still in dispute)
