Moore Resevoir

After almost three years of study, Monday night fish and game officials from New Hampshire and Vermont said they will not go ahead with a controversial proposal to stock the Moore Reservoir in the North Country with walleye.

The idea was scrapped over a concern that the walleye – which typically eat other fish – might hurt the trout population, not just in the reservoir, but in the Connecticut River downstream.

Stocking the walleye was suggested by fish and game officials from both states.

A live World War II era hand grenade was found at the Moore Reservoir in Littleton Sunday.  NHPR’s Chris Jensen reports.


The grenade was found by two men using a metal detector in an area that would normally have been under water.

“They were very surprised. They were hoping to find, I think, a little bit more valuable item.”

That’s Littleton police officer James Gardiner.

“They told me they found a penny, an old New Hampshire token and then the grenade. They are done with today’s metal detecting.”
