Surrounding Munsungun Lake are numerous remote Maine fly fishing only ponds that produce wild brook trout from ten inches to four pounds and more. June and early July are great for dry fly casting for these native brookies, August is a wet line, nymph casting month, and September remains a fantastic month to catch numerous Maine wild trout in their full spawning colors on top or just under. We have canoes on these remote ponds that are accessed by four wheel drive and on foot, or by our float plane. A Bradford Camps registered Maine guide is recommended for all or part of your stay to enjoy these waters that are considered by many to be the last vestige of trophy wild and native brook trout in the lower 49.
The Allagash River is close by for a day trip. It offers excellent brook trout fishing in May, June and September. The middle of the summer can be good when the weather gives us some cooler water. A short seaplane flight away is the Penobscot River and we have great success on various branches. Munsungan Lake is the headwaters of the Aroostook River which is the salmon nursery of Munsungan. These River fishing sections are very remote and quite scenic. Maine brook trout and salmon can range 10" up to 18 inches and more in these rivers. Fly fishing methods include dry fly casting, streamer fishing, and dead drift nymphing.
