FLY FISHING

 

The open-water fishing season opens in April, but here in the Jackman region we don't have open water until about the first week of May - everything is still frozen! Fly fishing season starts around May 10, and gets progressively better as the waters warm. You'll find there may be three or four days in August when the fish may not feed on top. Those are the days we use a sinking tip fly line.

We have about 100 lakes, ponds and beaver bogs in the Jackman region, and countless brooks and streams. The Moose River and the south branch of the Penobscot River are in Jackman, and the east and west outlets of the Kennebec River are nearby. You have a choice of salmon, trout, lake trout, and small mouth bass to catch.
