Heading For Aroostook Headwaters

It’s been a busy few days since arriving at the field school. Lots of cleaning, gear preparation, varnishing wannigans, canoe chairs, etc., but it’s finished and this morning we leave to paddle and pole the headwaters of the Aroostook river. We’ll be camping, fishing and canoeing back to the field school over the next week. The fiddleheads are just breaking ground here, and the trout are biting. It’s going to be a great trip.

When we return, we’ll have two days off for laundry, etc., then we’re off to the Allagash to paddle the length of the famous waterway. It’s shaping up to be a great month of May in northern Maine.

  • Yes, beautiful country. I was recently up in potato country too. My home area is the NH side of the Mahoosucs. The picture of the stream is of the same “look:” as streams in my neck of the woods.

  • You must be somewhere near Berlin or Errol, I’m guessing? I’ve spent a lot of time there, beautiful country. Thanks for the comment.

  • Gorham, on the southern end of the Mahoosucs.
