Continuing on with our Penobscot series...The West Branch is downstream from Seboomook Lake, just north of Moosehead Lake, is noted for both wild brook trout and landlocked salmon. The river is accessible by gravel road from either Greenville or Millinocket.
Northwest of Millinocket is renowned for its landlocked salmon fishery. The heavy rapids, deep runs, large pools, and two sections of slower moving water in the 12 miles of river immediately downstream from Ripogenus Dam at the outlet of Chesuncook Lake offer a variety of opportunities to fish for salmon. The icing on the cake here is the exceptionally scenic setting.
