The Salmon Camp

By Jerome B. Robinson – There is a special charm about old-time fishing camps, one that has to do with traditions which allow fishing to remain a relaxing form of recreation and not just a race to the fish. At all old-time camps, you still find men using split bamboo rods, and you fish from handmade cedar canoes handled by guides whose knowledge of local waters is exceeded only by their reputations as backwoods characters. No state has more of these old-time fishing camps and characters than Maine, where camps built before the turn-of-the-century still offer woodsy flavored fishing vacations reminiscent of the 1800s.

Weatherby’s Lodge at Grand Lake Stream, Maine, is such a place. Each morning the guides arrive and pick up trucks pulling trailers carrying the most graceful 20 ft. square stern canoes you’ll ever fish from. The lunch you ordered from the kitchen the night before will be packed in and as picnic basket made by local Passamaquoddy Indians; and once that is stowed in the boat with your rods and tackle, you are off to fish for landlocked salmon in the drainage where this high jumping, silver sided temptress of the deep north woods lakes abounds.
