CURRENT CONDITIONS AND ACTIVITIES | May 4, 2014
Wilsons on Moosehead Lake reporting: So much to report! There are many exciting things going on here at Wilsons Camps on Moosehead Lake. We have gone Wi-Fi!!!! We now have a broadband system offering wireless Internet to our guests.
We are in the midst of a later than usual spring with some ice still on the lake. There is some snow remaining in the woods and in shaded areas; but it is melting fast now. We have been busy around camp spring cleaning and sprucing things up after the long winter.
Moose and deer have started to appear on the side of the roads on a regular basis. They are quite scruffy as they are shedding their winter coats. Lots of small game are also out and about enjoying the beautiful weather! Ducks and geese have made their appearance as well in the cove! The loons are here and making their beautiful music for all to enjoy!
Attention Fishermen: Moosehead is now open for fishing as of APRIL 1st! This is a change in the regulations as it usually isn’t open until May 1st! The East Outlet is now open all year for fly-fishing only! The boys got an early start on drifting the river this year and have already ran it once! Water temperature was only 34 degrees at Indian Pond but the warm weather will be speeding things up quick! As soon as the water temperature hits 40 degrees the smelt will run, and the salmon and brookies will follow them and quickly spread throughout the river! Hatches of Blue-Winged Olives have already been spotted! Walk right out your cottage door over to the River for some of the best fly fishing! For daily water releases, call 1-800-557-3569 or give us a call at 1-800-817-2549 to make your reservation!
Hunters: We have packages that range from lodging only to complete guided packages with meals. Plan ahead for this fall for grouse, woodcock, moose and deer hunting.

We have gas on-site for your convenience. TRAIL UPDATE: The northbound trails to Rockwood and on to Jackman and Canada; along with a trail to Pittston Farm is complete! Make your reservations for later this spring. The ATV trails are closed at this time, but it won’t be long now!
