Maine Woods Adventure

Maine Woods Adventure

Canoe, camp, and hike in search of Maine's trophy Brook Trout, Landlocked Salmon, and Smallmouth.

Nowhere on the east coast is as synonymous with fly fishing as Maine. We will explore the birthplace of Maine’s fly fishing heritage, the Rangeley Lakes Region, with canoes, backpacks, and two nights at the historic Lakewood Camps. The only thing that will top the fishing is the scenery! Be prepared for total solitude as we float by grazing moose during the day, and fall asleep to the soothing sound of Loons at night. Enjoy fast action for brook trout on secluded ponds, and try your luck for trophy trout on some of Maine’s most famous water including the Roach River, Rapid River, Kennebec and more.

What to Bring

We have put together a list of all that you will need for a successful and comfortable expedition. We offer a rental program for most of the big ticket items like fly rods, reels, sleeping bags, etc..

Day 1-3

After arriving in Boston we will head to Western MA where we will kick off our trip by dialing in our fly fishing skills on some smallmouth bass. 

Day 4-5

We will use the skills we mastered on smallmouth bass to chase some big pike. Watching these fierce pretedors demolish your fly is enough to make any anglers heart race. 

Day 6-10

A three-night canoe trip will bring us along the East and West Outlets of the Kennebec rivers where we will catch trophy Smallmouth, landlocked salmon, and brook trout. 

Day 11-13

There is no better place in the US to catch trophy native brook trout then Maine, and there is no better place in Maine than the Rapid River. We will take a boat ride to a traditional Maine Sporting camp on the banks of the Rapid River. For three days we will have prime access to this remote river. 

Day 14

All good things must come to an end. After our drive back south to MA we will enjoy one last dinner together as a group as we relive our adventure at the Banquet dinner before we depart the next day. 

  • Brook Trout
  • Landlocked Salmon
  • Smallmouth Bass

Lillard Fly Fishing Expeditions was started in 2010 as a graduate thesis for my Master's Degree in Environmental Conservation Education at NYU. The operating premise was simple - by coupling amazing wilderness fly fishing camps for teens with environmental education and service learning we can help inspire future generations of fly fishing conservationists. We have been growing our unique list of trips and experiences ever since.

When it comes to choosing a summer program for your teen the options are endless. For the teen who loves to fish, be outside, and has a strong sense of adventure we have made the choice easy. We are the leader in teen fly fishing adventures and are dedicated to providing the best backcountry fly fishing experience with opportunities for teens to engage in leadership training, community service, and backcountry camping.
