Maine Fishing Trips

We are located on the edge of the Western Mountains, in the middle of many beautiful bodies of water such as the famous Kennebec River, the Dead River, and Wyman Lake, as well as Pierce Pond. Lakes, Rivers, and Streams abound here! We have excellent waters for using traditional tackle and rods, or fly fishing! There are also many remote places to fish if you are looking for a truly unique experience. We plan fishing trips to fit your needs, 1/2 day, daily, or weekly, guided or unguided, and including lodging or not. You can come to Pine Grove Lodge and fish this awesome area on your own for only $40 a day!!


We offer a variety of guided trips to suit your needs. Let us know what you’d like to fish for, trout, salmon, splake, bass, perch, or the great Northern Pike! Bob Howe had a monthly column in Outdoors Magazine called “A Guides Life” and has been featured in magazines such as Fresh Water Fly Fishing, North Woods Sporting Journal, and the Maine Sportsman for his fishing knowledge and experience, especially for Northern Pike. With Bob and his staff of guides, you will not just “go fishing”, you will get a true Maine fishing experience! He has also been on local TV shows The Maine Outdoorsman and Northeast Journal both with Harry Vanderweide.

Rates 1-2 people: $400 full day w/lunch (8 hours) $275 half day (4 hours)


Bob Howe, the owner, has been a Reg. Maine Master Guide for 35 years! He has been teaching people to fly fish for many of those years. Your day begins here at Pine Grove Lodge at 1:00pm with discussion and learning basic terminology, knots, fly identification, and other important skills. You will watch an instructional video with Bob as you discuss what is being shown. He will then take you outside for some practice as you are video-taped so you can see yourself in action, followed by more discussion and learning. After a delicious, home-cooked dinner, you will go to the river for some hands on experience and put your new skills to work until dark, around 8:30 or so. This entire day of fly fishing lesson and education, including the dinner, is reasonably priced at $400 for 2 people. Call for reservation and answers to any questions.


If you’ve never been ice fishing you are in for an exciting day! There is nothing like standing on a huge body of water, frozen and covered with snow on a beautiful sunny winters day! We provide all you need, the Maine Guide, ice auger, tackle, bait, snowmobiles, etc. You just need to bring your warm clothes and boots!
