Debsconeag Lakes Professional Review and Guide

"The Debsconeag lakes are wild, remote, pristine, and magical: the essence of Maine’s north woods. Paddling here on a quiet morning or listening to the wail of the ever-present loons from one of the rustic campsites, you can imagine what much of this country must once have been like. Prominent fish species: lake trout, salmon (First Debsconeag), and brook trout.

The boat access described below (we use the term “boat access”
loosely, because it is not accessible by most vehicles) delivers you at Omaha Beach on the Debsconeag Deadwater. Loons may greet your arrival, as does Mount Katahdin to the north, which seems to stand guard over many lakes in this region. Along the shore you will see northern white cedar, jack pine (a relatively rare, very short needled pine with quite flexible branches and cones that may stay on the tree for ten years or more), red maple, paper birch, balsam fir, red spruce, and a few hemlock."
