Maine Expedition Update

Hello from Maine, We have gotten our first couple days under our belt with our already very experienced young anglers, and we could not be more excited for the upcoming days. This is undoubtedly shaping up to be an awesome trip with a great group of guys. After picking up our team from the airport, we immediately headed north for the Maine border, our home for the next 10 or so days. We stopped for some dinner on the way up, and once we got to camp, we set up and got to bed pretty early in order to prepare for the next day. Tuesday was treated as a backcountry and trip preparation day, but we found some time to get on the East Kennebec to do a little fishing. We fished for a couple hours after taking care of our licenses in the morning, and then we headed back to prepare for our three night journey into Indian Pond.
Geared up and ready to enter the backcountry. The weather could not be any nicer!
The next three days, in my opinion (and most others), are one of the highlights of the trip. We will camp at the confluence of Indian Pond and the East Kennebec river, where we will be provided with the opportunity for brook trout, salmon, and smallmouth bass. During our stay, we will be shuttled with our canoes for two separate day long floats down the West Kennebec, known for its hungry trophy smallmouth. We couldn’t be more excited for what is to come.

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.
