Great Fishing At Chandler Lake Camps

Ice-Out Fly Fishing and Trolling

Maine Ice-Out Fishing

Maine Ice-Out Trolling:

When the ice melts in the Allagash or North Maine Woods in early May our Maine Ice-Out Fishing begins!  Our native Brook Trout, salmon, and lake trout rise to the surface and feed aggressively for several weeks on smelt. Our Maine Ice-Out Fishing is done by Trolling flies, lures, and spoons from a 21′ Scott boat or traditional 20′ Grand Laker style canoe that can provide nonstop action for these highly sought-after game fish. Combined with a hot shore lunch, early-season fishing will create lasting memories and great stories.

Late May runs into June when our waters begin to warm. Starting in early June and running through the end of September fishermen know the Aroostook and Allagash watersheds for the exceptional Maine trout fishing on our rivers, lakes, streams, and ponds.
