Does anybody know how far it is past the gate if you were to hike a canoe into parmachenee? Is the water usually rough or could you get dry fly action? I've always dreamed of fishing it.

No way you could hike in with a canoe. its a solid 2 miles and its a very hilly hike.

That depends on how good a shape you're in and how heavy the canoe is ;)
A good canoe carrier with wheels is a piece of cake with a couple guys.

Fished the lake a few times as my buddy owns a camp on it. Lots and lots of small fish to get through to reach anything of any size. They claim since the harvest is about zero on the lake, it's stunting everything. I had a great time and got to explore the upper river which does see some decent fish, but overall I was sort of disappointed after dreaming about the area for some years.

If you don't want to work of hauling a canoe the 2 or more miles in to the lake you can alwasy stay at Bosebuck Camps on teh Aziscohos which will give you access above the gate. I stayed there in the fall of 2009 and highly recommend it. ;) B)

I've stayed at Bosebuck - and fished Parmachenee - a number of times and thoroughly enjoyed myself. It's a gorgeous area but the fishing on Parmachenee is not worth the hike.

About Kevin McKay and Maine Fly Fish
My name is Kevin McKay and I became a Master Maine Guide in 2003. But before that I started www.maineflyfish.com, one of the largest fly fishing web sites on the east coast. It is dedicated to helping everyone who is new and experienced, to bring out their best when it comes to fly fishing. So it was only natural I became a guide and I haven't looked back.
