Fishing the Ponds & Lakes
If flat water is more to your liking, Aziscohos Lake lays literally at your door step. The lake is some fourteen miles long and is home to brook trout and landlock salmon, that are fattened to a fair thee well by a very healthy smelt population. Or try Parmachenee Lake which is a natural water body of 915 acres with twelve miles of shore line. It boasts a maximum depth of eighty five feet and it is home to large brook trout and landlock salmon. This is the birth place of the famous Parmachenee Belle, a wet fly that still works here today. The ponds and beaver flowages contained in the 26,000 acres inside the gates available to you are inhabited by the eastern brook trout. We have canoes and boats at the major ponds and can supply a canoe should you pick one of the others. Or perhaps you wish to join our guides for a float tube adventure.
Come and join us on a fishing adventure few have the opportunity to experience. It is a place where the every day interactions of nature unfold themselves to you around each bend in the river. Don’t be fooled, the fish in the Magalloway River System are wary competitors. A two and half pound brook trout doesn’t get to be that large by making mistakes. These fish hatched from eggs here and have learned their lessons well.
Because this is a wild fishery that is dependent upon natural reproduction the small ponds and both the Big and Little Magalloway rivers are fly fishing only. This is only one of the management strategies that have made this water arguably one of the best wild trout fisheries in Maine, if not all of New England. Bosebuck Mountain Camps believes in the catch and release methodology and promotes its practice. But if trout or salmon is what you crave, our cook can prepare any legally taken fish that you bring back to camp.
