For over 100 years anglers from around the globe have traveled to the Grand Lakes Region of Maine to experience it’s exceptional Landlocked Salmon, Brook Trout, Lake Trout & Smallmouth Bass fishing. This is where President Theodore Roosevelt spent a considerable amount of time hunting and fishing with his Maine Guide Bill Sewall.
As winter releases it’s grip and the lakes see open water again, Landlocked Salmon, Lake Trout and Brook Trout can be found near the surface aggressively feeding on the annual smelt run. Trolling traditional hand-tied streamer flies by our own Registered Maine Guides just inches below the surface will provide fast paced fishing action. Often these hard hitting trophy fish will leap several feet into the air, testing even the most experienced anglers ability.
When the water warms, other fisheries emerge. The Grand Lakes Region of Maine is nationally known for its world class Smallmouth Bass fishing, from crankbaits and soft plastics to top water this exciting fishing provides trophy bronzebacks all summer long and surely is a great way to introduce new and young anglers to the sport.
From small unspoiled remote ponds to quite rivers and still pools this time of year also offers the fly fisherman access to our Native Brook Trout fisheries. Casting dry flies during the many hatches to rising trout and salmon on still mornings and evenings will make for memories that last a lifetime!
As an added bonus your Maine Guide will prepare a shore lunch. There is nothing like brewed coffee and a hot meal, prepared lakeside or streamside by your guide along with some good fish stories on the side!
