Maine Woods Adventure

Canoe, camp, and hike in search of Maine's trophy Brook Trout, Landlocked Salmon, and Smallmouth.

Nowhere on the east coast is as synonymous with fly fishing as Maine. We will explore the birthplace of Maine’s fly fishing heritage, the Rangeley Lakes Region, with canoes, backpacks, and two nights at the historic Lakewood Camps. The only thing that will top the fishing is the scenery! Be prepared for total solitude as we float by grazing moose during the day, and fall asleep to the soothing sound of Loons at night. Enjoy fast action for brook trout on secluded ponds, and try your luck for trophy trout on some of Maine’s most famous water including the Roach River, Rapid River, Kennebec and more.
