Fishing at Nahmakanta

“Nahmakanta” is a spectacular, spring-fed lake at the heart of an incredible wilderness fishing area, 45 miles from the nearest town and many miles from other camps (and other fisherman !) Surrounded by wild forests, clear-flowing streams and remote brook trout ponds, we offer our cabin guests a variety of fishing options, including….



-We maintain hiking trails to 15 remote brook trout ponds, with rowboats and canoes for our guest’s use 

-Excellent stream fishing for brook trout and landlocked salmon

-Professional Maine Fishing Guides on site

-Trolling for lake trout and salmon from 14′ Lund boats with Honda 4-stroke outboards on 1000 acre Nahmakanta Lake

-Fly Fishing or Spin Casting

“We caught over 100 Brook Trout in one day…! non-stop action ! The Brookies were averaging 13″-16″, great for the fly rod. Fishing with two flies, several times we had two fish on at the same time. Some of the best fishing ever ! Thanks, Don & Angel, for more great memories to add to our Nahmakanta collection…!”

-Bob Bourque / Standish, MAINE 

Except for our camp, the Nahamakanta shoreline is completely wild, with enormous granite boulders and natural sand beaches. With no public boat launch, our fishing guests usually have this spectacular, 4 mile long lake all to themselves!
