This is a freestone river with lots of deep pools and riffles. Water levels are controlled by the dam at Brassua Lake. The dam also ensures that river temperatures are always cold, a plus for coldwater species. Moose River residents include a population of larger than average crayfish, some with tails 3 or 4 inches long. These are known locally as “Moosehead Lobsters.” Special fishing regulations include a closed section of river, a 12-inch minimum length limit on brook trout, an 18-inch minimum length limit on lake trout, and special artificial-lures-only and fly-fishing-only seasons. Read the Open Water Fishing Regulations booklet carefully before fishing. Rockwood offers a number of private campgrounds. Key Species: brook trout, landlocked salmon.
