Moultonborough, New Hampshire 03254
The Kona WMA, 321 acres, was transferred from the Department of Resources and Economic Development to the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department in 1969.
Except for 10 acres of old fields, this WMA consists of forests with stands of white pine and mixed hardwoods. The topography is variable, ranging from flat and wet to steep and ledgy. It includes 3,025 feet of frontage on Braun Bay of Lake Winnipesaukee. There are small beaver ponds throughout the property and a system of woods roads for walking.
Common Wildlife: Wood ducks, mallards, black ducks, beaver, white-tailed deer, moose, and black bear can be found. In Lake Winnipesaukee, there are a variety of fish species, such as landlocked salmon, rainbow trout, lake trout, smallmouth and largemouth bass, and several species of panfish; i.e. yellow and white perch, pickerel, bluegills, sunfish, and bullheads (horned pout). Shoreline angling from the Kona WMA will likely produce small and largemouth bass and the aforementioned panfish species. Loons have nested on the shoreline in the past.
Active habitat management has occurred to retain open areas for habitat diversity, through a timber harvest in 1993. These areas offer browse and nesting habitats.
From NH-25, take Moultonboro Neck Rd. Turn right onto Kona Farm Rd. and then left onto Jacobs.
