Pocumcus, Junior, and Sysladobsis Lakes Professional Review and Guide
"The loop comprised of Pocumcus, Junior, and Sysladobsis lakes in the heart of eastern Maine’s lake country offers one of the best extended quiet-water loop trips in the state, especially when one detours for a few days into Scraggly Lake. These lakes flow into the St. Croix River, which forms the southeastern border between Maine and New Brunswick. Because you can end up where you started, the trip requires just one car. But be aware that these are large lakes; under breezy conditions, large waves can build up quickly, making paddling difficult and, at times, quite dangerous.
Always keep your plans flexible and be ready to change them if the conditions prevent you from paddling on the big lakes. We recommend traveling in parties with at least two canoes for safety. Prominent fish species: Pocumcus Lake: white perch, salmon, and smallmouth bass Junior Lake: salmon, smallmouth bass, perch, and chain pickerel Bottle Lake: brook trout, salmon, smallmouth bass, perch, and chain pickerel Sysladobsis Lake: salmon, smallmouth bass, perch, and chain pickerel"
