Nestled amidst the untamed wilderness of Maine, OMM Outfitters & the Historic Eagle Lake Sporting Camps beckon to those with a fervent love for the art of angling. Whether you’re a seasoned fly fisherman, a stalwart ice angler, or simply harbor an insatiable passion for fishing, this is your haven.

Immerse yourself in the allure of Northern Maine’s lakes, streams, and rivers, where the pursuit of brook and lake trout reaches sublime perfection. Here, in these pristine waters, where the echoes of history resonate, one can reel in brook trout that often span 8 to 10 inches, with larger specimens reaching up to 20 inches in length. Lake trout, on the other hand, offer a formidable challenge, with average sizes ranging from 15 to 24 inches and the potential to exceed 30 inches, tipping the scales at impressive weights. Since the dawn of the 1900s, sportsmen from all walks of life – even royalty – have made their pilgrimage to the Eagle Lake Sporting Camps, drawn by the promise of unrivaled trout fishing along the hallowed Square Lake thoroughfare, a mere stone’s throw from your rustic cabin.

Embark on a journey along the three and a half-mile stretch of water that connects Eagle Lake and Square Lake, a veritable paradise for anglers. Serene waters mirror the surrounding vistas, adorned with shaded trout pools that beckon with irresistible allure. Here, amidst the tranquil embrace of nature, one can master the gentle art of paddling a canoe and casting a fly, undisturbed by the whims of the wind.

In the Fish River chain of lakes, the bounty of brook and lake trout fishing awaits, particularly during the months of May, early June, and September. As the seasons unfold, the angling remains fruitful, with July and August offering ample opportunities at Eagle Lake. Fed by a network of lakes including Long Lake, Mud Lake, Cross Lake, and Square Lake, as well as by the waters of Fish Lake, Portage Lake, St. Froid Lake, and the Red River lakes, Eagle Lake emerges as the nexus of abundance. Spanning twenty miles in length and stretching from half a mile to two miles in width, it stands as the largest and deepest jewel in the chain. Even in winter’s icy embrace, the camps remain a favored sanctuary for ice fishing enthusiasts.

Venture beyond the lakes into the labyrinth of streams and small ponds that dot the landscape, each teeming with life and promise. Here, amidst the whispering pines and gurgling brooks, the pursuit of wild trout takes on a mystical allure. During the languid days of July and August, cold spring brooks and mountain ponds beckon, offering sanctuary to those who seek to test their mettle against the wily trout.

For those who crave guidance or seek to craft their own adventure, seasoned guides stand ready to assist, ensuring an unforgettable journey through the wilderness. Yet, amidst the bounty of nature’s embrace, it’s imperative to heed the rhythms of the land, consulting the revised editions of Fish and Game Laws to navigate the nuances of season openings, closures, and restrictions. With careful planning and foresight, your expedition promises to be a resounding success, a testament to the timeless allure of fishing for brook and lake trout in the wilds of Maine.
