Kona Wildlife Management Area: 315 acres of land, with 3,025 feet of water frontage on Braun Bay, within Kona are considered part of the New Hampshire Wildlife Management Areas. With the exception of 10 acres of old fields, this WMA consists of forests with stands of white pine and mixed hardwoods. 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.
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.
