Fishing in Maine

fly fishing and spin casting on lakes, ponds, rivers and streams

The Big Moose Inn is located on Millinocket Lake which is part of the Penobscot River watershed. Millinocket Lake is a home to togue, landlocked salmon and white perch. Many of the local ponds and streams are teeming with trout. If you prefer to use a lure there are abundant places to catch brook trout, or go after a landlocked salmon while fishing the West Branch of the Penobscot river. Baxter State Park has many fly fishing ponds that allow the purist to experience a remote trout pond at its finest. Big Moose Inn cabins are the perfect accommodations for any angler. With fully furnished kitchens, a Big Moose Inn cabin is perfect for frying up the days catch.
