East Branch goes east of Katahdin- lots of good salmon, brook trout, smallies and chubs.  Once it warms up- smallies and chubs.

 

BTW- GLS is a bit of a hike from Island Falls (about 2 hours)- you have to go overland.  Early season, it will take you even longer as the dirt roads will all be closed.

if the east branch is as good as it looks then I'll be all set, I have a fishing kayak and 14 alum boat to try the lake if the river is too warm. If May is dry (not much snow this yr) I'll try a dry run late spring to check it out.

Talking to the farmer next door, he said the road to the dam on the east branch ,rt 159, starts right here in town and goes all the way to the dam, its paved , frost heaves in the spring but its ok for cars.

 

I told him when I lived in Boston I'd made the long drive out to montana a few times, I didnt know there was great fishing a lot closer, my assumption being Maine was float plane access only.

4 day drive vs 7 hrs. I should have been coming north instead of going west.

 

The farmer didn't know the east branch is also good in the fall, he told me originally it was just a spring run and done. 

CAn't wait to drive out there and see, but we got another 5 inches today.
