2014 Spring update

16 MARCH 2014

A look at the calendar and it appears Spring is near. A look out the window and it appears it's not even close!                                           But, it is what it is and there's no disputing the sun is climbing higher in the sky each day. The days of 50-60 degree days will be here soon and the snow pack will lose it's grip.

We've had a lot of cold and rainy weather, which has made the Salmon fishing a lot of fun. The lake we fish has made a huge comeback in the Salmon and Lake Trout fishing. Most of the Spring that has been our focus. Many 3 plus pound Salmon have been caught. 

The cold water had slowed the Smallmouth fishing up until yesterday. One of our longest customers came for their annual trip. We had a great day catching huge Bass. 6 of the best were:  two 20" Bronze backs, two 19" beauties, one 17 & one 16.5 inches. All 4 family member caught big fish and every fish was caught on something different. It was a fun day. Even though the lake was like glass, top water lures were the only presentation that failed to catch a fish....

Remote Trout fishing trip

Remote Trout fishing trip

16 MAY 2013

I have been slacking on my fishing updates, my apologies. I could blame writers block but I believe you have to sit down and actually attempt to write in order to have that.

It's been a fun Spring. Ever since we bought the Wilderness Lodge, I have been working on developing the early Spring fishing  around the Lodge. The remote fishing opportunities and resources within a 15 miles radius of the lodge is some of the best fishing anywhere in the state! We are truly blessed to be set up where we are.  We have remote Trout Ponds, a nice remote Smallmouth pond, 2 of the best Brook trout streams in all of Eastern Maine just minutes away. I could guide a couple fishermen an entire week and not hit the same place twice.

SPRING FISHING IN MAINE FOR SMALLMOUTH,BROOK TROUT & SALMON

SPRING FISHING IN MAINE FOR SMALLMOUTH,BROOK TROUT & SALMON

17 APRIL 2013

 

Spring fishing is here in Downeast Maine. Here's what we at Eagle Mountain are up to.

 

- Native Brook Trout: We fish multiple remote streams and ponds for these Maine treasures. We can walk a remote wooded brook or canoe a larger stream. One of our favorite spots is a 13 acre fly fishing only pond that is coming right up on prime time.

- Smallmouth Bass: Our early Smallmouth fishing focuses on a remote woodland river that we need to hike into. This prime Bass fishery consistently produces 2,  3 and 4 lb Smallies. After we fish the river in the deep woods, we usually jump into the canoe and fish it some more in the slower / flat waters downstream.

- Landlocked Salmon:  May is Prime time for the majestic Landlocked Salmon. We troll the big lakes in our comfortable 24' pontoon boat at West Grand Lake in the village of Grand Lake Stream Maine. As well as a few other top Salmon lakes.

TEMP: 5 DEGREES

WINDS: 25 MPH SUSTAINED, WITH FREQUENT 40-50 MPH GUSTS.

My Friend Brian and I Fished a remote lake in Downeast Maine today. The conditions described above were brutal and were it not for the fact that I dressed in Filson Wool from head to toe, I would not have been able to stay on the lake from Sun-up to Sun-down. I was as warm as could be.

I had on my : Filson  Double Mackinaw Cruiser - Filson Mackinaw Field Pants - Filson Original Wool Shirt - Filson Alaskan Long Johns - Filson heavy duty OTC Merino socks.

Everything but my hat and my boots were Filson products. Filson Wool is the best bar none and can be depended on. It is warm and lasts for years.

We only caught 3 Salmon but it was a great day to live in Maine! 

For more on these products and other great hunting apparel, go to my Wool  Clothing page.

During the month of May, Eagle Mountain will have it's 24' Fishing Pontoon boat docked at Leens Lodge on West Grand Lake. The Landlocked Salmon fishing is second to none at West Grand and Leens Lodge, known as the "Waldorf of the wilderness", is located on the pristine shores of this 13,000+ acre spring fed wilderness lake. This lodging-dining-fishing combination will bring you coming back year after year. We invite you to take advantage of the best lodging on the lake and fish with Eagle Mountain Guide Service.

FALL FISHING

FALL FISHING

28 SEPT 2012

Just when I thought that I had put away my fishing hat,  my Bear hat  & gearing up to don my Birding hat, the boss...

( Lisa ) ... books me a fishing trip! I had to dig deep to find the fishing hat even though I only put it away a few weeks ago. 

Fishing this time of year to me means one thing. Trolling for Landlocked Salmon and Lakers. Water temps are down and the fish are up near the surface. I have never really targeted Smallies this time of year and I wondering while trolling, where I'd start looking for the big Bronze Backs this time of year. But who really wants to Bass fish when the Salmon are cruising the surface again?
