"Stoney Batter"

Mooselookmeguntic Lake is the largest lake in the Rangeley Lakes region of Maine, and is the third largest lake in Maine. It holds populations of Landlocked Salmon, and Brook Trout. The lake can be spectacular fishing, and can be extremely dangerous when the weather becomes stormy. I have fished this lake many times trolling its waters with streamer flies, and Mooselook Wobblers.

Some of the more productive areas of this lake are in the Bugle Cove, trolling across the lake to Farrington Island. But the area thats special to me is Stoney Batter point to Farrington Island. This area is a good place to pick up a nice brookie.

The streamer fly I created is named for this area of Mooselookmeguntic.
