For those who love small streams, wild trout, and life...in their simplest form
Monday, February 11, 2013
Bemis is located at the far end of Mooselookmeguntic Lake. It's an area that is quite special both from a angling perspective as well as a natural one. The stream is accessed from an old road that is still mostly dirt, and at certain times the ruts can make you feel your driving in mini canyons. The woods are teaming with wildlife, and deer, and moose are seen at any time. Early mornings loons can be heard, there sound is of a wilderness they inhabit.
There are areas just to the left of the lake that have not been changed and remain like they were when man first saw them. And from what I'm told they will be protected forever.
There is a stream that flows into Mooselookmeguntic lake. This stream is Bemis Stream. It's a stream that provides spawning habitat for the brook trout that live in the lake. In the fall there are places where one can fish a streamer and have the possibility of taking a four pound plus wild brook trout.
The section of AT that crosses here is one of the most rugged. The beauty that surrounds it is worth the trek.
A streamer I created. It captures my feeling for the woods, waters, solitude and the beauty of Bemis.
