Roughly 3 miles of river, Grand Lake Stream is home to one of the original four strains of landlocked salmon in the lower 48. Its gin-clear waters flow from West Grand Lake in eastern Maine, southeast into Big Lake and on toward the St. Croix River on the boarder of New Brunswick. Grand Lake Stream has been a destination for fly anglers since the mid 1800’s and has been FFO water since 1903. The Stream consists ...
of deep pools connected by broken water and riffles that hold salmon throughout the summer if conditions are advantageous. There is also about a mile of steep, fast water that, at the proper flows, can be very exciting, scenic and productive to fish. The open season begins April 1 and closes October 20. In between these dates you can experience classic streamer fishing, top-notch nymphing or world-class dry fly fishing depending on when you choose to fish. Listed in Trout Unlimited's 100 Best Trout Streams In America, Grand Lake Stream is a must-fish for your "bucket list."
