Guided Fishing Trips
The Grand Lakes Region in eastern Maine is known for the finest Landlocked Salmon, Lake Trout, Brook Trout and Smallmouth Bass fishing found anywhere. For over 100 years, anglers from around the globe have visited this area.
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. These hard fighting trophies can be found 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 from ice-out through the month of May. These hard hitting and tough fighting game fish will often leap several feet into the air, testing even the most experienced anglers ability.
When the water warms, another fishery emerges, Smallmouth Bass. The Grand Lakes region of Maine is nationally known for its world class bass fishing, from crankbaits and soft plastics to top water and even dry flies on still mornings and evenings, this exciting fishery provides trophy Bronzebacks all summer long and surely is a great way to introduce new and young anglers to the sport.
As an added bonus your Maine Guide will prepare a shore lunch from the mornings catch. There is nothing like a hot meal and coffee, prepared lakeside or streamside by your guide!
Fly-Fishing Grand Lake Stream
Grand Lake Stream is considered by many as the finest Landlocked Salmon fishery in the world. One simply can not discuss Landlocked Salmon fishing without mentioning this 3 mile stretch of moving water, draining from West Grand Lake into Big Lake. This fly-fishing-only stream provides opportunities for the beginner fly-fishermen to the most experienced.
From the “Dam Pool”, near West Grand Lake to the “Meadow” in the lower part, the river is a collection of well known and named pools all with differing characteristics. Fluctuating water levels, controlled by the dam, also make each visit to Grand Lake Stream unique and memorable, with fish always on the move. When the bite is on, the fishing is nothing short of fabulous.
During spring and heavier water flows, streamers are very effective, imitating smelts. As waters warm, nymphs and dry flies provide fast action. Grand Lake Stream is open to fishing from April 1st through October 20th, with great fishing all season long.
