What We Do
Fly Fishing for Smallmouth Bass, Landlocked Salmon, and Trout Fishing
Weatherby’s has been a fly fishing and spin fishing destination for sportsman for more than 100 years and the Grand Lake Stream Region of Downeast Maine is renowned for some of the best fly fishing and spin fishing for smallmouth bass, landlocked salmon, and lake trout in the world! Restricted to fly fishing only since 1903, three-mile long Grand Lake Stream offers fantastic brook trout and salmon fishing with extended fall fishing until October 20th. We also fish dozens of pristine, undeveloped lakes for smallmouth bass, pickerel, yellow and white perch – providing quality fishing opportunities for anglers of all abilities throughout our season. As always, ask us about private group or individual instruction and guide services.
Maine Grouse & Woodcock, Black Bear, Turkey, White-tailed Deer and Moose Hunting
The Downeast Lakes region of eastern Maine provides limitless opportunities to explore and hunt for Maine ruffed grouse and woodcock. Surrounded by almost 1 million acres of private and public land with open access hunting parties can explore large commercial timberlands, abandoned farms, blue berry fields and apple orchards in search of their quarry.
Maine Moose hunting is by permit only and our guides specialize in real back woods hunts either on foot or by canoe. You might only have one crack at a Maine moose in your life. Let us help you make it a memorable experience.
Our Maine white-tailed deer hunts are true hunts. We hunt them where they live and if we are fortunate enough to have snow, you will learn the art of tracking a true Maine white-tailed buck.
Lodging and Dining
Weatherby’s offers 15 spacious cottages nestled amongst the trees, with enough space surrounding them to ensure your privacy. Each of these rustic cottages have either an open brick or Franklin fireplace. (After all, what’s more enjoyable after a day of fishing than relaxing by an open fire?) To add to your comfort, our cottages have screened porches, private baths and a very cozy bedroom. These rustic cottages are attractive with tasteful antiques, but feature modern amenities and comfortable beds. Every day, our housekeepers make the beds and tidy up your cabin, while our cabin boy ensures you have plenty of fresh ice to keep cool and ample wood and kindling to keep warm. Special attention has been paid to selecting the finest box springs and mattresses for your bed, so you can rest assured of having a terrific night of sleep.
