Fishing

Fishing in the Maine Woods is a truly sublime experience. The region’s hundreds of remote streams and ponds provide opportunities to explore new territory and cast a line for an exciting variety of fish species. With more native brook trout water than anywhere else in the country, the Maine Woods is a must-visit destination for fly-casters in the cooler months of May, June and September. Landlocked salmon provide an exciting fast-water experience, while in warmer, slower-moving waters you can find healthy populations of small-mouth bass. Then there’s Maine’s massive lake trout, and stellar rainbow and brown trout fisheries! Whatever your angle, your Maine fishing experience will be rewarding and memorable.

Maine Woods Discovery certified guides and outfitters will set you up with the right equipment and tip you off to those ‘best-kept-secret’ locations. They can help you navigate to a remote mountain stream, or work with you to refine your casting skills on the state’s most popular rivers. Registered Maine Guides have been providing one-of-a-kind experiences to clients since 1897, and they offer the best in

outdoor skills and knowledge. If you and your family are traveling light, Maine Woods Discovery lodges and resorts can provide all the gear you need – and most have Registered Maine Guides on staff. However you choose to experience it, the simplicity and beauty of fishing in the Maine Woods will capture your imagination.
