Wild Fish Equates to Wild Places

Some fisherman who come to the North Maine Woods prefer a remote wilderness fishing experience.


Fly-out fishing trips into dozens of deep water trout ponds within and around the Highlands of Mt. Katahdin.


This trip is for the Adventurers wanting to fish for wild native trout and the features these brookies prefer: clean water and no competition from other fish species; just insects for food – and the fly on the end of your line.

Fishing for native brook trout never takes you any place ugly and can only be described as a world of its own.


Getting to those remote waters is one of the things that make this fishing trip so special.
