Kennebago River—Rangeley Lakes Region Professional Review and Guide
"A quietwater paddle on a serpentine river in the heart of moose country. The Rangeley Lakes Region is one of the oldest resort destinations in Maine. Yet, despite its popularity, it has retained much of the relaxed north woods charm that first lured sports enthusiasts here more than 150 years ago. If you’re drawn to the sweet smell of balsams, the plaintive cry of loons, or the thrill of sighting a bull moose on a remote stretch of water, Rangeley will charm you too.
The Kennebago River flows into the heart of the region and is among more than 100 lakes, ponds, and rivers within the watershed. This trip explores a serpentine stretch of the river known for its excellent fishing and abundant wildlife, particularly moose. When I paddled here, early on a July morning, I encountered two bull moose jostling for territorial rights less than a half-mile in."
