To the canoeist, the solitude of the Penobscot River is unmatched in the Northeast, where the call of the loon and the
sighting of moose along the river banks are not uncommon as it winds its way down into Chesuncook Lake and leads you to the
Allagash Waterway. Whether you're a cross country skier or a snowmobile enthusiast there are hundreds of miles of wilderness
trails and old logging roads to explore. Gas and oil are available at Raymond's. For nature lover or the hiker, the wilderness
has great appeal. There are owls and eagles, ducks and loons, fisher, fox, moose and deer. The woods are full of wildlife
if you take the time to enjoy yourself.
Moosehead Lake, known for its togue, trout, and land-locked salmon offers bountiful open water fishing from May to October.
In the spring and fall the togue and trout are in the shallow waters, but during the warmer
weather they lurk in the depths of the lake where the water is colder. Some of the most famous old fishing grounds
such as Norcross Point and Duck Cove are still available to the fishermen. The West Branch of the Penobscot River,
from Seboomok Dam to the Foxhole, has some of the finest fly fishing in the Northeast. During the winter, ice
fishing is the sport to try. Norcross Point may be known for its salmon and togue, but Green Island and its
surrounding shoals is fast becoming famous for its trout. Trout as large as seven pounds have been taken in this
area of the lake.
Hunting starts in September with the bear season and lasts through November. October opens bird season. There
seems to be plenty of partridge and woodcock available for those who look for them. Some hunters use dogs, but our
birds aren't as flighty as those in farming areas. If you're one of those lucky enough to be drawn in the moose
lottery, we are conveniently located at the juction of three of the moose hunt zones. Deer hunting starts in November
and lasts through Thanksgiving. Old logging roads make excellent trails to hunt. The North Woods hides many record
deer who roam the hardwood ridges, cedar swamps, and stands of fir that surround Raymond's making this one of the better
areas for hunting.
