Moosehead Lake, the center piece of our region, is nearly forty miles long and twelve miles wide with breath taking scenery of undeveloped shoreline and mountains . Mount Kineo rises over 300 feet straight above the surface of the lake. There are endless opportunities for every big lake fishermen. Moosehead Lake is famous for its landlocked salmon, brook trout, and lake trout fishery. Smallmouth bass in the Lily Bay and Spencer Bay areas provide good shallow water fishing for the whole family throughout the summer months. Ice shanties dot the lake in the winter in pursuit of the thriving lake trout fishery. Many other lakes in the immediate area with easy access from state maintained public launches provide avid anglers lots of choices. If you’re new to fishing in the area, or just want to learn a few new tricks, we recommend the use of a Registered Maine Guide.

Our small pond, eastern brook trout fishery attracts anglers from far and wide. There are forty ponds within a one hour’s drive of downtown Greenville. Many are road side with easy canoe or kayak access or you may choose to hike into the many back country ponds where your only visitor may be one of the many moose and deer that call this region home.
Fifteen minutes from Greenville on the west side of Moosehead Lake you’ll find the East Outlet of the Kennebec River, a beautiful three mile fly fishing only river famous for its landlocked salmon and brook trout fishery. Another ten miles up Rt 6/15 puts you on the West Outlet of the Kennebec and its wonderful smallmouth angling. Ten more minutes and you’re on the Moose River, in the quaint lakeside village of Rockwood, a tail water fishery that holds landlocked salmon and brookies throughout the season. Twenty miles up the eastern side of Moosehead you’ll find the tiny town of Kokadjo (population not many) and the headwaters of the Roach River another fly fishing only, catch and release river winding six miles through remote undeveloped land emptying into Moosehead Lake. Fly fishermen from all walks of life make annual trips to Kokadjo for the fall spawning run of landlocked salmon and big brook trout.
