Eastern Maine offers World-Class fishing for Trout, Salmon and Smallmouth Bass. Anglers find some of the best Spring Salmon & Trout Fishing in the state and Summer months offer arguably the best Smallmouth Bass fishing found anywhere. The areas we fish offer countless clean glacially formed lakes with trophy coldwater and warmwater gamefish species. These waterbodies feature rocky shorelines, steep drop-offs, clear water and miles of undeveloped shoreline. In addition to the spectacular fishing, the scenery alone is worth the trip. We target Brook & Lake Trout, Landlocked Salmon and Smallmouth Bass. Non-target species include Chain Pickerel, Largemouth bass, Perch.
Our guided Maine fishing trips are done from the comfort of our 16′ console boats or our cedar stripped 20′ Grand Laker Canoes, the perfect craft for getting into the rocky shoals where the fish hide. These vessels will keep you comfortable and safe while providing the true Maine Guide experience. We welcome all skill levels and encourage families with children to spend some time on the water. The safety of our guests is our top priority.
Trout & Salmon Fishing
Spring Salmon and Trout fishing when waters are cool is unmatched in this area of the state. Directly after ice out trolling streamers, smelts and lures just below the surface is highly effective. Fish are actively feeding and the action can be fast, producing large fish. As waters warm and summer progresses, fish move to deeper cooler water. Downriggers are used to get the bait and lures down where the fish area. Action can be a little slower this time of year but with patience and the right technique, large fish can be found.
Smallmouth Bass Fishing
Maine offers some of the best Smallmouth Bass Fishing available anywhere. Bass often get little recognition by trout fishermen, but this warm water species shouldn’t be ignored. A sizeable Smallmouth aggressively takes bait and offers a great fight, often leaping into the air much like a Salmon. Bass fishing heats up in June, lasting through September, with aggressive trophy Smallmouth making for action packed days during spring spawning. Effective fishing methods include casting topwater, crankbaits, and rubber worms.
Guided Fishing Trip Information
We offer fishing trips from ice-out, usually late April, until the end of September. The Salmon & Trout fishing is usually best early in the season and later in the fall when waters are cool. Bass fishing is more productive during the summer, warmer water months. Rods and all gear is provided or you may choose to bring your own. A shore lunch and snacks are provided with Full Day trips and include delicious Guide Coffee. We never mix parties and you and your group will have our undivided attention throughout the day.
