Summer Camp Life

Two early summer camps in Maine.

Welcome Downeast

Spring is on the way, and then summer. Rob McCall discusses lupines, opening up the “camp,” and other harbingers of warm weather.

Sabbathday Lake

Known for the nearby Shaker Village, Sabbathday Lake is worth a visit for its low-key boating and a great snack bar.

Icing on the Cake

What’s the meaning of icing on the cake? In Deborah Corey’s case, it started with a recipe and led to a family tradition.

Up to Camp

“Up to camp” is a sacred concept. When you go, you pack the good stuff (fishing tackle and beer) in, and leave the bad stuff (pretty much everything else) behind.

The Draw of Water

Water is a vital element for painter Marguerite Robichaux, a seasoned fly fisher who often combines painting and fishing trips, who captures the rivers and lakes of Maine.

Ice Age Survivors

When the last of the glaciers left by the ice age finally disappeared more than 10,000 years ago, they cleared the way for two evolutionary wonders of the animal kingdom: landlocked salmon and arctic char.

An Heirloom Canoe

You’d think someone whose ancestor built canoes would own beautiful examples. Benson Gray explains why that’s not so, and how he finally did find an heirloom boat.

The Legend of White Nose Pete

Brook trout measured in pounds rather than inches are not uncommon in the Rangeley Lakes Region of western Maine, but there is one fish that stands out above all the rest. He is called White Nose Pete, although some refer to this piscatorial desperado as Pin Cushion Pete.

Classic Maine Plastic

Hang around just about any Maine boat ramp and the odds are good that a Corson runabout will show up sooner or later. Like lobsters and blueberries, they are a boat with as much “Maine-ness” as maple syrup and whoopie pies.
