Every season we see old friends and welcome new ones to camp. Dry flies and native brook trout on the lake... Black Ghosts and salmon on the river all part of your fishing adventure here at Grant’s. Plus great home cooked meals and even greater stories shared around the tables. Welcome back, my friends. Tight Lines. John and Carolyn Blunt, your hosts Grant’s Kennebago Lake Camps Condoda Skip See you in September Dino Into Flat Iron Pond Dino and his wife Maryanne and daughter Christina visit with us in mid August but come September Dino is back for some fishin’. He saves one day for a trip on the Upper River starting in the Logan up to Bridge Pool. Dry flies and brookies! Next day it’s wading the Lower River for silver sided salmon! Skip has been fishing here for 25 years and a couple of years ago he introduced Condoda to Kennebago Lake and fly fishing. She can’t be called a “rookie” anymore Skip! A hike into Flat Iron Pond made for a great day trip and some beautiful Brook Trout. Ray Lemieux Ray has been fishing at Grant’s for more than 25 years in both June and September. He pretty much knows the lake and where to find the fish. This salmon came to the top for a #18 Montreal dry. 2015 grant'smailer news:Layout 1 Lynette 3/23/15 3:21 PM Page 2 Kenny Roxanne Helen Blake The Prescots fly of choice is the Black Ghost Peter & dad Barney Martin They all fished the river and Roxanne particulary likes the Powerhouse Pool where she picked up some nice salmon. The family fishing adventure continued down to Devels Elbow and Green Island. They all hooked up with salmon and trout and they have been doing it since the late 1980s! What a great family. Any day fishing with dad is a good day but on September 28th. it was a special day. While fishing out in front of the Rope Swing 9 year old Peter hooked into a 18 inch brook trout! He played it, brought it in and netted it. Congratulations Peter. Glady De Wick A Great Day In June! The Lary brothers are back! Kenny for his fifth year and Kevin for his third. It seems like every time someone saw them they had fish on! All released. These guys fish hard and laugh hard. Great sports to have in camp. Your cabin is ready! Bill, Gordy and John These fishin’ buddies have been coming here for 34 years and by all their reports, this June this was another great trip. And, as was told by them one evening at dinner all three had fish-on at the same time! But, we gotta remember, they are fisherman! New to the lake? Need a couple of tips? They are willing to share and of course, being fishermen they never stretch the truth! See you in June for year 35! Sam Danvel Patricia Don’t have to strech this fish tail Onion’s Long time guest Dan likes to fish John’s Pond Pool where he says “the fish show but never bite”. Hey Dan take a look to your right Looks like your grandson Sam figured it out... an 18 inch brook trout! The Smile says it all! Arnold Atkins came in from New Mexico in mid Sept. with one purpose and that was to add to his life list the landlocked salmon. He did get his landlocks but he also got a brook trout of a lifetime in the lower river... twenty three inches and five pounds plus. What a double header!
