Just walk out of your cabin to the lakeshore and cast, bang you have hooked a smallmouth bass. The Jo Mary lakes have quietly become an exciting destination for this high-flying sport fish. We have had customers set their rod down and say, “enough” or this is the most bass they’ve ever caught. If that doesn’t sound fun just picture being the only person on an entire lake catching these wild fighting bass. And a short walk we have 2 lakes to fish so you won’t be bored. We have seen 4lb fish caught and there are bigger ones out there. Fish from canoes kayaks or rent a boat. Guided fishing is available as well.
If you are coming for salmon then you’re already aware of what you are in for. These silver bullets will give you all the action you would want. When these fish come out of the water everyone in the boat will explode with delight, then the fight is on. Salmon will delight from the catch to the stories that last a lifetime.
With an endless number of ponds, lakes, and streams you will find Brook Trout lurking everywhere. The North Maine Woods boasts many heritage ponds to fish which are native unstocked waters with Brookies. We have canoes at some of the ponds or maybe try a float tube. However you get out there, it’s worth it for the trout, the scenery, and the peace you will feel enjoying Maines most famous fish.
You’ve heard of fish by the bucketful? Well, they must have been talking about one of Maines’s tastiest fish, the White Perch These can be caught in the lakes right at buckhorn or other surrounding ponds. This delicacy will make for one amazing fish fry, and who wouldn’t go for a fish fry by the campfire.
