("Bonus Season".... 4 area backcountry trout lakes open for
"catch and release" fishing Oct and Nov)
Nahmakanta Lake....4 miles long, 1000, acres 115' maximum depth.
General Law regulations (flies, lures or bait ). Nahmakanta is primarily a lake trout and landlock salmon lake, with a few brook trout. Salmon run 12" to 20" and occasionally larger. Lake trout, or "Togue" run 3-12lbs. Throughout the season, salmon are found anywhere from the surface to 40'. Togue can be as deep as 50'. Most fishing on the lake is from motorboats with trolling and fly rods and long leaders. Salmon frequently rise for flies mornings and evenings in front of camp. Casting flies or lures from canoes or boats is possible then.
Backcountry Brook Trout Lakes....
We maintain foot trails to and keep boats and canoes at 14 different hike-in brook
trout lakes in our area. Walking distance to the backountry lakes vary between 1/4 and
2 miles. All but two are restricted to flies and lures by regulation. Brook Trout up to 20 " and
Six mile long Nahmakanta stream drains Nahmakanta Lake and is an excellent salmon
and brook trout fishery from mid May and late June or early July and again in late September. A classic freestone stream, swift and rocky with pools and deep runs
between rapids. There are also two smaller brook trout streams right near camp.
