You will get more out of your hunting, fishing, and outdoor recreation experiences when you work with a Registered Maine Guide. Maine has the best-tested guides and outfitters around. And for every trip, there is a guide to match.
The history of guiding runs deep in Maine’s Heritage Sporting industry. It began when Cornelia “Fly Rod” Crosby—a woman— was issued the first Maine guide’s license in 1897. That continues today with Guides working hard every day to provide outstanding outdoor experiences.
Many are also offer equipment, advice, and instruction. So whether you’re hiking, kayaking, fishing, hunting, rafting, or even bird watching, there is a Maine guide whose specialty will match your interest.
Those who love to fish have flocked here season after season, generation after generation. Experience prevents us from making the same mistakes over again and so will a Maine Registered Guide. These professionals know where the fish are hiding out, and they deliver a memorable experience every time.
There’s a reason that sportsmen continue to take advantage of the traditional hospitality and hunting experience that Maine’s Kennebec Valley has to offer. The region offers lots of hunting opportunities. Hunt for upland bird, waterfowl, coyote, black bear, whitetail deer, turkey, and even moose. Working with someone who knows the terrain, and what licenses you need, can greatly improve your success.
Raft a roaring river, hike a quiet wilderness trail, pitch a comfortable camp in a forest of spruce and fir, canoe a scenic stretch of river, and watch for moose. Guides are not just for hunting and fishing. Some even offer bird watching and wildlife photography excursions. All while making sure that your time spent in Maine’s great outdoors is safe.
