Hi there.

Welcome to my awesome fishing blog.

I'm a devoted four-season freshwater fisherman who chases trout, salmon and bass year-round on Maine's numerous ponds, lakes, streams, and rivers. I love ice fishing, open-water fishing, trolling, and fly fishing. I fish from shore, in waders, from my canoe or a powered boat.

Read on if you want to learn more about out-of-the way fishing spots or seek to increase your odds of catching more salmonids or bass.

My motto is "If I fish it, I blog about it!"

Fishing for brook trout on Moose Pond in Bowtown Township, Somerset County, Maine (May 30, 2022)

 

Parts of the unimproved forest road leading into Moose Pond have been ripped open by four-wheelers during mud season.

 

Moose Pond covers 11 acres and is located in Bowtown Township in Somerset County, Maine (see The Maine Atlas and Gazetteer map 30 A2). This pond can be reached as follows: from North New Portland (see The Maine Atlas and Gazetteer map 30 E2), drive north on Long Falls Dam Road for about 24.5 miles and turn right on Carrying Place Road at the sign for Cobb’s Camps. Drive down this gravel logging road for 10.1 miles until the yield traffic sign and turn left on Bowtown Road (note: Google Maps calls this road “Otter Pond Road”). Pass Harrison Camp on the left, cross Pierce Pond Stream and drive for another 4 miles or so until the road forks. Hang a right at that fork and look for a rough and unimproved forest road to your right a couple of hundred feet further down. Don’t bother driving down this forest road in the spring because several sections of it have been plowed open by four-wheelers and 4X4 vehicles during Mud Season, creating deeply-rutted pools of soft mud. It’s about a half-mile walk from Bowtwon Road to the pond.
