Fishing Molunkus Lake 2015

In June 2015 my brother, Jack, friends, Bill, Art and I went up to Maine for a fishing trip at Molunkus Lake. We had a great trip, caught a few fish, the weather was good, and the owners of Harry's Lodge, Jackie and Bob Paasch did their usual great job to see that we were comfortable and well fed. Jack and Art went golfing on 2 of the days, while Bill and I went for hikes, or fished in the Penobscot river.

Jack and Art motor out for a day of fishing on Molunkus Lake.

I got this nice one.

We saw a number of grouse with chicks on our hikes.

This momma grouse tried to lure us away from her you, using the broken wing trick.


Bill and I hiked to Haywire Pond

There were several pitcher pland flowers blooming on the shore of Haywire Pond.

This camp was near the shore of Haywire Pond.

There was a hatch of caddis flies on the river. The smallmouth bass were rising to the, but I didn't bring my fly rod.

It's egg laying time for the snapping turtle, and this one was crossing the road in search of a spot
to lay her eggs.
