Northern Piscataquis and Western Aroostook county are located at the heartbeat of Native Wild Brook Trout waters in Maine. Our rivers, streams and numerous remote ponds beckon the avid fly fishermen or women to their shores. Our area has very low fishing pressure and our experienced guides pride themselves on their skills and their area to fish. We are able to fish a different water every day, if you desire. Our fishing program caters to small groups each week. The finest of accommodations and meals. Reasonable rates $200 pp. all inclusive* Guides are $250 per day/two guests. All youth under 16 stay free with a paid adult. NO FLYOUTS NEEDED: You save money!
Start a tradition with friends, family or just go to the woods to unwind. Prime dates still available. Think JULY think Big Green Drakes!!!!
When spring comes and the ice breaks up on the Allagash lakes our Native Brook Trout and Lake Trout rise to the surface and feed aggressively on smelts for weeks. We troll and cast streamers from 21 ft. Scott canoes and Grandlakers to nonstop action as the fish put the feed bag on after a long winter. Combine this with a hot shore lunch and the finest lodging the North Maine woods has to offer and you create a great experience and wonderful memories.
As always, youth under 16 come free with a paid adult. Great guides, equipment and the fishing couldn’t be better. Call or e-mail for available dates.
We are experiencing a crazy winter here in the North Woods. With little snow, minimal ice and crazy
temperatures we have weathered 30 below to 43 above in the same 24 hour period. We have made the best of our time, catching up on correspondence, friends and family. We are anxiously looking forward to the change of season and all of its splendor. Spring fishing for Native Brook Trout, smelt runs, fiddleheads and shore lunches on the Allagash and its surrounding area.
There’s a lot going on as we prepare for our 2016 season. We have expanded our fleet of watercraft of both 20 ft. canoes and 21′ Scott boats to better accommodate our guests and open more opportunities for remote waters. Our search never ends for new waters in the vast North Woods.
We are expanding our trips on the Allagash to showcase its 50Th. anniversary this year. We will be offering out of the 4Th. Musquacook location, one, two, and three night trips to the river with the option to return to the lodge for the best of accommodations the North Woods has to offer. Private rooms and baths as we can only offer, within 15 miles of the Allagash. Fully guided and outfitted as needed, trips to the Ghost trains of Eagle lake, Umsaskis and Long lake dam, down to the outlet of Round pond. 20′ canoes or Scott boats make these trips safe and comfortable. We will make it a trip of a lifetime.
Bookings are already ahead of last year. We are more than 90% booked for October 2016. 2015 was our busiest year to date. Great guides are available if needed, so let us do the work. Please plan ahead and call soon to secure your choice dates for spring 2016.
Hello Folks from Chandler Lake Camps in Beautiful Northern Maine – The month is winding down and the leaves are finally on the ground, but the Grouse numbers are holding strong. Great group of hunters in camp this week with outstanding upland dogs. Deutch Drathaars, English Setters and Spinones. A couple of new comers to the Grouse world were humbled by the King of all game birds as we all are many times over!
This week has been off to a banner start for our guests and their faithful companions. Over 60+ points over the past two days. Many shots fired and even a few birds bagged. Folks are learning that the Ruffed Grouse is the King of all game birds for many reasons. A thunderous flush and shot evading skills at the top of the heap! The leaves have continued to fall and the Prime Grouse hunting period we have been waiting for is upon us.
We have a couple openings for next week due to cancellations. Please contact us asap. We would love for you to experience the North Maine Woods for Grouse Season.
Good Day folks from the heart of the North Maine Woods. Another great week with wonderful people from all over the country. The Grouse numbers have been holding steady. Several days this week with points and flushes in the mid twenties per dog. Leaf cover is still unusually heavy for this late in the month but dropping fast. We expect the best conditions are still yet to come. Our resident woodcock have kept things quick paced but we are still waiting for the Canadian flight birds to push through. Fall colors are just passed peak with the rumor of snow showers for today. Just a Beautiful time of the year!
Crazy first two weeks of upland hunting in Maine’s North Woods. Warm temps. and abundant leaves curtailed the traditional high point count but seasoned pointers/setters and persistence payed off. Our guides could show the Grouse and Woodcock were their and left it up to the gunners to bust through the leaf cover. Daily limits are the norm with the Woodcock flights slowly trickling in. Cool temps are just arriving with peak color upon us. Lazy afternoons have been filled with great October fall fly fishing for Northern Maine Brook Trout and well, relaxing and visiting by the fire.
A couple of weeks with wonderful friends, bird dogs in the beautiful North Maine Woods.
Its been a long and hard job yet so worth it. The new cabin will be ready for the first guests of bird season in a few weeks. Its been a decade since we built a new cabin or ‘camp’ as we refer to it here and with the traditional methods of construction we fully expect it to be here many decades into the future. Come stay with us soon and start to create the memories of “if those walls could only talk….”
Enjoy the pictures below of the cabin taking shape…
There is no time like the present to start a Family Tradition. Here at Chandler Lake Camps we have always embraced the need for family and the outdoors. For all that we love of the outdoors and the hunting and fishing traditions we have enjoyed we realize that the next generations are the ones that will keep us in their memories and keep the traditions alive well into the future.
To put our commitment in action it has always been our policy that our youth guests 16 years and under stay free with a paid adult. There is no time like the present. Start a Family Tradition at Chandler Lake camps today by reserving some quality time in the North Maine Woods.
