Since you're in NH, I would check out:
- Pemi in Bristol
Gorgeous piece of water to practice and fish, especially in fall. Brood stock salmon, trout and smallmouth
- Merrimac in Franklin
- Merrimac in Concord, Sewalls Falls area
- Nashua River in Hollis
Good spot for practicing unless the river is up
Probably some good spots in Maine - the Penobscot
Any tidal river during the right tide changes will offer practice but you need to wash the gear after and coastal winds make practicing a variety of casts limited (the point of practicing Spey is to go through the various situations for me and a strong wind in one direction forces the issue)
Southern MA is pretty much a no, Rhody - I will let Sean or others reply to that. I taught a class on a Rhody river last year and it was pretty good when they let water out of the dam but otherwise kind of low and slow. I'll see if I can remember the name, Art Burton fishes it a lot for trout.

Spey practice river
Anyone know of a good spey casting river in the Southern Massachusetts and Rhode Island area? I need to find some good water.
