Unmatched Fishing

Moosehead Lake, known for its togue, trout and land-locked salmon offers bountiful open water fishing from May to October.  In the spring and fall the togue and trout are in the shallow waters, but during the warmer weather they lurk in the depths of the lake where the water is colder.  Some of the most famous old fishing grounds such as Norcross Point and Duck Cove are still available to the fisherman.  The West Branch of the Penobscot River is located one and a half miles from Raymonds Store. Some of the finest fly fishing in the Northeast is from Seboomook Dam to the Foxhole which are two popular hot spots located on the West Branch.  We are only three and a half miles from the boat launch for Lobster Lake which is where the trophy fish are hiding.  During the winter, ice fishing is the sport to try.  Norcross Point may be known for its salmon and togue but Green Island and its surrounding shoals is fast becoming famous for its trout.  Trout as large as seven pounds have been taken in this area of the lake. 

Hunters Paradise

Hunting starts in September with the bear season and lasts through November.  October opens bird season.  There seems to be plenty of partridge and woodcock available for those who look for them.  Some hunters use dogs, but our birds aren't as flighty as those in farming areas.  If you're on of those lucky enough to be drawn in the moose lottery, we are conveniently located at the junction of three of the moose hunt zones.  We are a Big Game tagging station and do moose tagging also.  Deer hunting starts in November and lasts through the first week of December.  Old logging roads make excellent trails to hunt.  The North Woods hides many record deer who roam the hardwood ridges, cedar swamps, and stands of fir that surround Raymonds making this one of the better areas for hunting.

At North East Carry

Raymond's is situated at the Northern end of Moosehead Lake,  in the North East Cove.  We are about sixty-five miles north of Greenville and west of Millinocket.  Raymond's offers an ideal setting in the remote wilderness of Northern Maine to satisfy even the most avid fisherman, hunter or naturalist.
