This remote branch of the Penobscot River is largely overshadowed by the better-known sections. Thus, you can count on quality fishing with little competition. The stretch of river below Canada Falls Lake flows through a small but scenic gorge. A maintained campsite is located at Canada Falls Lake. Canoeing is not practical, but it is easy to fish the river from the bank or by wading. Note that some spots are too dangerous to wade when the water is high. There are several special fishing regulations. From April 1 through August 15, the daily limit on trout is two fish, and the minimum length is 6 inches; only one trout may be longer than 12 inches. From August 16 through September 30, artificial lures only may be used, and the daily limit is one fish. Key Species: brook trout.
