Pike Fishing

The Belgrade’s are famous for our trophy Northern Pike and catching this challenging fish is our specialty! Fish with a registered Maine Guide and enjoy these toothy game fish. We provide all the tackle and bait. Fly fishermen are welcome too!  Primetime is late April – June and again in September – October.  We can catch them in the summer, but it’s a little slower fishing. This area offers one of the best chances at a true trophy pike anywhere in New England. P.S. Don’t forget your camera!

Remote Trout Fishing Trip

This is a fun trip, especially if you love catching brookies on a fly rod! Fish in a canoe and/or float tube for wild brook trout with a Maine Master Guide and enjoy spectacular scenery while you are at it. The old saying is true, trout don’t live in ugly places!

Striped Bass Fishing


Maine’s Striped Bass fishery is the success story of the 2000s! Here’s your chance to enjoy one of the best fly-fishing or conventional tackle game fish on the coast.  In late May and June, the fish are caught up in the Kennebec River which is only a short distance from Belgrade.
