Acadia NP

Post by 46er » Sat Apr 06, 2019 9:18 am

I have been to Acadia many, many times but was never aware of the opportunities for Brookies there. The Mar/Apr issue of Eastern Fly Fishing has an eye opening article :shock: Will come in handy for our annual autumn trip.

Make sure you post again on this after your trip in the fall! I was in Maine several years ago with my family on vacation, but never got to fish that trip.

I caught brookies there in 2013 and snapped my rod (stepped on it). Still a good trip tho. Watch out for black flies if you go in August/September.

The issues are available online as PDF's, but $$$, see link. I scanned the article, 4 pdf's, but not sure how it can be posted here, if at all. June is the worst for blackflies, a friend was bit raw on a trip up to Rangeley Lake some years back.
