Red River and the Deboullie Township have offered some of the state's best pond-based brook trout fishing since the late 1800's. The area is home to seventeen ponds which range in size from 6 acres to nearly 400.
Our sports fish for Eastern Brook Trout, Landlocked Salmon, Lake Trout, and native Arctic Charr (Blueback trout). In fact, the current state record Arctic Charr was caught in Pushineer Pond (less than 5-minutes walk from Camp) in 2008. A previous state record Brook Trout (held from 1979 to 1997) was caught in Black Pond, a little over a mile from Camp.
We also have some wading, river, and spin-casting opportunities locally, but our fly-fishing far surpasses them all.
Fishing licenses must be purchased prior to your visit. Licenses can be purchased online from the Maine Department of Fish and Wildlife.
We've compiled a list of flies that work well in our area. We have flies for sale here at Camp, or you can purchase them before your trip.
