Fishing Trips

For campers who are enthusiastic fishermen, we offer both day and overnight trips on which boys are able to use the fly-fishing skills they've learned in camp in some more remote locations. Some campers catch fish using flies they tie themselves.

A typical summer includes the following fishing trips, among others:

I.P.F.D. - 3-day fishing trip on Indian Pond and the east outlet of the Kennebec River. Great spot for salmon, brook trout, lake trout, and bass.

Big Eddy - Designed and led by Doug Faherty, parent of long-time Pine Islander Jack Faherty, this 3-day trip takes campers and fly-fishing instructors to the "Big Eddy" on the Penobscot River. Pine Islanders have caught many brook trout and salmon on this trip, including a 20+" salmon that had onlookers ogling.
