Plan a Trip to Weatherby’s in Maine
When is the best time to visit Weatherby’s in Grand Lake Stream?
Late April start the fishing season on Grand Lake Stream. Trolling after ice-out for landlocked salmon is a tradition.
Late May and June bring the May fly and caddis hatches, followed by alder flies, stoneflies and other terrestrials in July. Fly fishing for landlocked salmon with dry flies in late spring and summer can be exciting. Landlock salmon often rocket out of the water after being hooked with a delicate dry fly.
Summer is a wonderful time to visit Downeast Maine. Enjoy summer festivals, blueberry picking and awesome smallmouth bass fishing. Kids stay at Weatherby’s for free in July and August. See our Specials page for more details. Within close proximity to our lodge we have access to a public beach and dock on Grand Lake for great swimming, our local land trust has developed several hiking trails just outside of town and the mountain bike opportunities are endless. Within a short drive of Weatherby’s you can visit Moosehorn National Wildlife Refuge or Eastport and East Quoddy Head, the eastern most point in the United States. From here, whale and bird watching cruises are available or you can spend the afternoon sailing on a schooner in Passamaquoddy Bay. Opportunities are virtually limitless as you explore the roads less traveled on the down east Maine Coast.
Autumn brings beautiful fall foliage and hunting season. Book a New England grouse hunt, visit at deer hunting season or come for the hunt of a lifetime after winning a moose tag.
No matter what the season, Weatherby’s is committed to providing you with fine home cooking, exceptional service and quality accommodations that will make your vacation not just a trip, but an experience, one that you will want to pass along to your children and grandchildren.
