Fishing for lake trout on Lower Wilson Pond in Greenville, Piscataquis County, Maine (May 17, 2021)

 

The boat launch by the dam is spacious.

 

Lower Wilson Pond is a 1,380-acre body of water located just east of the municipal airport in Greenville, Piscataquis County, Maine (see The Maine Atlas and Gazetteer map 41 D3). This lake has two public boat launches. I use the one at the southern tip by the dam off E Road (note: E Road is renamed the Katahdin Iron Works Road a mile or two further east). The hard-top launch is spacious, can accommodate large boats, and offers plenty of parking. The entrance to the launch is clearly marked by a large sign on E Road.

Fishing for brook trout on Salmon Pond in Greenville, Piscataquis County, Maine (May 15, 2021).

 

The rough launch can only accommodate hand-carried craft.

 

Salmon Pond is a 12-acre body of water located a few miles outside of Greenville, Piscataquis County, Maine (see The Maine Atlas and Gazetteer map 41 D3). Access is via an old logging road off the Katahdin Iron Works (KI) Road. I was able to easily find it using my phone’s GPS thanks to a strong signal coming from Greenville. The KI Road, and the side road leading to the pond, are rough in spots but quite drivable using a regular car. Hence, no need for a four-wheel drive vehicle. The pond is accessible by foot via a short forest trail. Only hand-carried craft can be launched on it.

The launch at Sawyer Pond can only accommodate hand-carried craft.

 

Sawyer Pond is 67-acre body of water located off Scammon Road a few miles outside of Greenville, Piscataquis County, Maine (see The Maine Atlas and Gazetteer map 41 D3). I was able to easily find it using my phone’s GPS thanks to a strong signal coming from Greenville. The Maine Atlas and Gazetteer shows a launch for trailered boats on the eastern shore. Don’t believe it! Only hand-carried craft can be released from that location, as I found out the hard way. Ample parking is available nearby.
