The ice has been out for just over a week now and the mix of sun and spring showers have brought with it a surge of renewal for the warmer seasons ahead. We’re looking forward to the upcoming weeks where the fly fishing is at it’s peak. The white water brims on the Kennebec and Dead rivers during their daily dam releases and many of our guests seek higher ground at Lake Parlin Lodge for retreat or a well deserved getaway experience. Each day is full of excitement in the rapids or restorative in the quiet, peaceful settings found in the pristine waters of the lake, abundant with hungry brook trout and landlocked salmon awaiting those newly tied flies.
The Lodge at Lake Parlin transforms this time of year from a buzzing ice and snow filled mecca to a refreshing outdoors mountain getaway that meets you at every level. Day hikes on the surrounding trails wrap around the lake and can divert into the nearby mountains full of wildlife and nature. The short trek to the West Forks promises a blast of white water excitement filling up your need for speed during this otherwise quiet time of year. Canoe and kayaks are available for trips around the lake and spring fly fishing couldn’t be better in the brooks and surrounding streams.
So, whatever your pleasure, come see us soon and get away for a weekend or week full of hiking, fly fishing, or an exciting and fun filled ride down the wild rivers and get your warmer seasons underway!
