Wilderness Back-Country Fly Fishing Trip

Join us in September on a unique and coveted wilderness back-country trip to fish for landlocked Atlantic salmon on the storied waters of the West Branch of the Penobscot river! We will be fishing for mature landlocked salmon on the fly using streamer and nymphing techniques during the salmon’s annual fall migration.

We will travel eight miles by canoe down the West Branch from Lobster Lake, north of Moosehead Lake. We will set up camp along the Fox Hole stretch of the river above Chesuncook Lake and fish for wild, hard-fighting salmon that have received minimal fishing pressure.

After a long day of fishing, you will enjoy a hearty and delicious meal followed by stories around the campfire with a drink in hand. Sleeping arrangements will be a comfortable tent equipped with cots and propane heaters that will drive off the chill of a fall night in the wilds of Maine. You will drift off to sleep on the banks of this historic river listening to the rushing waters where native people and lumbermen once traveled, and on which  Henry David Thoreau so famously wrote about in his Maine Woods.

Enjoy great fishing, camp cooking, and camaraderie in a spectacular autumn setting that will create memories to last a lifetime! This high demand trip is limited to four anglers per group and will be guided 2:1. Don’t miss out – secure your spot today while space is available!
