Message from the President For 40 years the Maine Professional Guides Association (MPGA) has been leading the way for all of us who make our living in the woods and on the waters of Maine. It is a significant milestone and one worth celebrating. More than a century has passed since Cornelia Thurza Crosby, aka “Fly Rod Crosby,” was issued the very first guide’s license, on March 19, 1897. Our guiding tradition predates one of the most famous chroniclers of the Maine woods: Henry David Thoreau. Since our beginnings, Maine Guides have become synonymous with capable and ethical outdoor leadership. Today Maine Guides are recognized worldwide for their professionalism, their knowledge of the outdoors and their ability to develop the kinds of winning relationships that keep visitors coming back.

Michael D. Wilson

During the last four decades the MPGA has grown to be a diverse group representing a wide range of outdoor pursuits and members. The bottom line, however, remains the same: protecting and enhancing the venerable tradition of guiding while conserving the resources that we all depend on. All of our members have signed an ethics pledge that contains four key elements: • Obey all state and federal laws. • Cooperate with all wildlife officials and landowners. • Provide quality service and equipment. • Promote conservation and education and put safety above all else.

Our membership is comprised of guides from all regions of the state. We are proud of our reputation as the “group to call” when outdoors issue come up. MPGA members participate in many state government groups focused on tourism, conservation, land access, landowner relations and various other tasks. We sponsor kids attending the Bryant Pond Conservation School every year. We also employ a lobbyist to represent our collective interests at the State House. Every year brings new challenges, and the MPGA brings reasoned perspective to the ever-changing political landscape. That is why it is so important for us to keep our organization vital and active. If you are looking for a skilled guide for your outdoor adventure in Maine, please search our membership. It is the source for the best guides available. Above all else, enjoy your time in the outdoors. We all work very hard to provide top-notch guiding services, and that always has been our primary goal: a memorable and enjoyable outdoor experience for all of our clients. Sincerely,

Jeff Bellmore, President

About the MPGA Guiding has had a long and colorful history in Maine. From when Cornelia “Fly Rod� Crosby was issued the first Maine guide’s license, in 1897, to today, thousands of guides have worked to provide clients a great experience in the Maine outdoors.

Established in 1978, the Maine Professional Guides Association is proud to be the largest, oldest organization of Maine Guides, with more than 1,000 members and a 40-year history. Our members provide great recreational opportunities from the remotest parts of the state to the most populated. From sea kayaking to fly-fishing to bear hunting, we have something for everyone.

4

We hold our members to high standards, to ensure the best experiences for clients, promote safety and support conservation and education efforts that ensure the future of guiding. Each of our members is required to sign a code of ethics, pledging to provide quality service, promote safety, obey all laws, cooperate with wildlife officials and landowners, and support conservation and education. Our guides are certified by the state in the fields of hunting, fishing, recreation, sea kayaking and/ or whitewater rafting and are trained in first aid, so that they are prepared to handle any problems that might arise.

MPGA Code of Ethics All members agree to abide by the MPGA’s Code of Ethics: I will fully cooperate with state and federal wildlife officials and will abide by and advise my clients of all applicable conservation and game laws, statutes and regulations and will not condone their violation. I will maintain serviceable equipment and gear in good working condition. When providing bedding or other personal equipment, it will be clean and sufficient for weather conditions likely to be encountered. I will employ well-trained, courteous and sufficient personnel to adequately care for guests and facilitate rendering the services offered. I will maintain a neat and orderly camp at all times. Rates, accommodations and services will be clearly defined for prospective clients prior to booking and acceptance of down payment. I will not misrepresent rates or service accommodations or otherwise mislead prospective clients through false or fictitious advertising. I will at all times conduct my operation and services in an ethical and businesslike manner.

Douglas Merriam

I will honestly advise my clients of fish and game populations in the area, and I will make no “guarantees� as to the potential success of a fishing or hunting trip. I will make every effort to fully acquaint my clients with all the conditions of weather, terrain, equipment, travel and housing they may expect on the trip and advise them as to guns, equipment, clothing and other gear they must furnish as well as the approximate degree of physical endurance, agility, strength and skill required to enhance their experience afield.

6

I will at all times cooperate fully with private landowners and public-landmanagement agencies and will respect their rights and privileges. I will at all times provide for the safety and well being of my clients and all other individuals who I may encounter in the course of my guiding experiences.

“Higher Purpose” THE OVERALL MISSION OF THE MAINE PROFESSIONAL GUIDES ASSOCIATION (MPGA) IS TO PROTECT AND ENHANCE THE PROFESSION, INCOMES AND OUTDOOR HERITAGE OF MAINE GUIDES AND TO MAINTAIN THE NATURAL RESOURCES THEY AND THEIR CUSTOMERS DEPEND UPON.

Michael D. Wilson

MPGA Mission: Through cooperation with other groups, political action and public education, the Maine Professional Guides Association aims to preserve natural resources and the traditions of guiding and outdoor recreation. We work with other groups such as federal agencies, industry, agricultural interests, and other sporting and conservation organizations to solve problems involving natural-resource conservation and outdoor recreation. The MPGA also actively sponsors or opposes legislation that affects Maine Guides or the natural resources they depend on. Additionally, we work to preserve good relationships between sportsmen and landowners, and we support education to promote good sportsmanship and ethics, firearms safety and responsible use of natural resources.

8

The MPGA’s stated purposes are to: • Work cooperatively with the Department of Inland Fisheries & Wildlife, the Department of Conservation, the Department of Marine Resources and other state and federal agencies on issues that will improve or promote the interests of professional Maine Guides, enhance the image of Maine Guides, encourage the wise use of renewable natural resources and ensure the future of traditional forms of outdoor recreation. • Work cooperatively with industry, agricultural interests, government, and sporting and conservation groups whose overall objectives are

not inconsistent with those of the Corporation to arrive at workable and logical solutions to problems related to guiding, outdoor recreation and the use of natural resources. • Actively participate in writing, sponsoring and supporting legislation or regulation at state and federal levels that promotes or enhances the interests of professional Maine Guides and to conserve the natural resources that are essential to the future of the guiding profession. • Vigorously oppose legislation or regulation that would be harmful to professional Maine Guides or the guiding profession or that would directly and negatively impact natural resources that are essential to the future of guiding or that would unnecessarily restrict hunting, fishing or related activities that traditionally have involved the use of Maine Guides. • Cultivate a feeling of goodwill and mutual understanding through proper recognition and respect of the rights of others insofar as they relate to the ownership and/or management of property, the enjoyment and lawful use of natural resources, and the enforcement of laws and regulations. • Protect, support, encourage and promote the safe and legal ownership and use of firearms through education, training, demonstration, dissemination of information and support of appropriate legislation. • Encourage, by education, training, demonstration, dissemination of information and support of appropriate legislation a high level of sportsmanship, ethical behavior and respect for the rights of others when using firearms or participating in any form of outdoor activity or sport that is directly or otherwise reasonably related to the interests of the Corporation.

What to Ask Before You Make a Reservation • What exactly does this trip involve? How exactly will we be fishing, hunting and/or traveling? Am I (or others in my party) physically capable of this trip? What changes can be made if the trip is too difficult? • How likely are we to be successful? (A guarantee of success should be viewed with caution.) • How many others will be in camp? How many will be with the guide?

in printed material.) What are the expected terms of payment? • Are meals included? If so, what sort of meals will be served? (If you have special dietary requirements, make sure that you let your guide know.) • Is transportation included? If so, from where to where? • Are licenses required? If so, are they included in the price?

• Who will be the guide?

and results. Be sure to contact a number of references in order to get the “big picture.” Be wary of prospective guides who will not provide a list of references. • Verify that your guide is fully licensed in Maine and in the category of activity you plan on doing. Many guides are licensed in one area specifically, such as fishing, hunting or recreation. Also be sure to verify that your prospective guide has the proper federal licenses, if required, and insurance.

• What is the price? Exactly what is included in the price? Are there any other costs? Are tips included in the price? • Is a deposit required and, if so, what is the policy on refunds? (These things may be clearly stated on a website or

• Discuss with the prospective guide everything that will be included in the package price. Make sure that you both are clear on every detail and are in firm agreement on the price and services offered and expected. • Ask for a list of past-client references. References can be an invaluable source for gaining an understanding of the guide’s demeanor and skills as well as for investigating hunting or fishing successes

• Have a few conversations with a prospective guide to see whether your personalities mesh. If possible, meet with the guide in person prior to booking the trip. If you clash with your guide, your trip can go from fun to sour in short order. If appropriate, be sure that you will enjoy sharing multiple days with the guide. Keep in mind that a guided trip is a personal experience; take some time getting to know your guide and determine if you are a good match. Also be sure that you and your guide

have the same goals for the trip. For example, are you more interested in a quality vacation experience or pursuing a trophy? • Be realistic and have attainable goals. Realize that many factors can affect hunting or fishing trips, including things like inclement weather that are beyond the control of the guide. Be sure that you are not asking your prospective guide for something unreasonable, unobtainable or unsafe. We recommend that you have a written confirmation of what is included when booking a trip that outlines each detail offered, promised or expected on the excursion. It is recommended that the confirmation also include the method of payment and terms of payment. Terms for cancellations or refunds should be outlined in the agreement. Be wary of cash-only deals with no paperwork. It is also advisable to request a written receipt once the trip is completed.

MAINE HUNTING FACTS In 2016 the overall success rate for moose hunters was 75%. The Maine ›Fisheries Dept. of Inland &

Wildlife owns more than 60 wildlife management areas totaling more than 106,000 acres.

NIGHT HUNTING for coyotes is allowed from midDecember until the end of August with a special permit.

Maine has two species of grouse: ruffed and spruce— the latter of which has no open hunting season. The common eider, which is considered a “sea duck,” is the largest duck in North America.

THERE IS NO MINIMUM AGE TO HUNT IN MAINE, BUT HUNTERS UNDER THE AGE OF 16 MUST POSSESS A JUNIOR LICENSE AND THOSE 16 AND OLDER NEED AN ADULT LICENSE.

• Maine Wildlife Conservation Council (MWCC) led the fight that defeated the anti-hunting lobby twice on the ballot in Maine. • Our mission is to defend, protect and promote opportunities for all sportsmen and women to hunt, fish and trap in Maine.

BIG-GAME RECORDS (as of Fall 2017)

Our sole purpose is to raise money that can be used to protect your hunting, fishing and trapping rights. Money that can help defeat the next anti-hunting ballot issue. The war chest is the most important thing that MWCC is doing. As 2014 becomes farther and farther away, it’s critical to remember why MWCC exists. Our best and most dependable weapon is money. If we have a strong war chest, we will be ready to defend our heritage. MWCC is critical to the future of hunting in Maine and needs your help. MWCC brings together Maine’s sporting organizations, businesses and individuals to create a fund that enables Maine sportsmen and women to defend against the next referendum and to promote a constitutional amendment protecting hunting and trapping in the future. We need everyone’s support!

Big-Game Hunting

Maine’s most iconic game animal, without a doubt, is the moose. Maine has the highest concentration of moose of any state in the Lower 48. You are especially likely to find one of these majestic animals in the northern and western regions of the state grazing in a secluded mountain pond or trotting alongside a logging road. Weighing up to 1,000 pounds with antlers up to five feet across, a mature bull moose is the ultimate trophy. Maine is home to other big-game species as well. Whitetail deer are most abundant in the central and southern regions of the state. Maine also has the highest black bear population in the Eastern US. Bears can be found almost statewide foraging on berries in clear-cuts in the late summer or feasting on beechnuts in the fall.

The wild turkey is another popular game species. With populations having made a dramatic comeback, these birds now can be found in most areas, and there are hunting seasons in both the spring and fall. If you are interested in a challenge, a bobcat hunt might be just what you’re looking for. Spending a crisp winter day hunting with hounds, following tracks in the fresh snow can be strenuous, but it is extremely rewarding when you finally catch sight of that bobcat you’ve been pursuing.

Small-Game Hunting

Millions of acres of excellent habitat provide for large populations of small game in Maine, and there is exciting hunting for a variety of species. For example, you can spend a fast-paced day hunting snowshoe hares behind hounds, hurrying to position yourself as the hares run large circles in the woods. There are few experiences as exhilarating as listening to the bawling of hounds as they run almost out of hearing, and then slowly get louder as they bring the hare around—you watching intently for the movement of your snow-white quarry ghosting through the woods. This is a great opportunity for hunters of all ages and a fun way to spend a crisp winter day.

Coyote hunting offers a range of possibilities as well. The season is open year-round, and there is even night hunting at certain times. Hunters often use bait and calls to attract the animals, but coyotes can be hunted with hounds too. If you are a squirrel hunter, Maine offers long seasons and abundant opportunities. Sneak along an oak or beechnut flat, and you likely will spot a gray or red squirrel foraging on mast. Then it’s a matter of sneaking close enough and connecting on such a challenging target.

Upland & Waterfowl Hunting

With millions of acres of excellent habitat, Maine has healthy populations of gamebirds throughout the state. Upland birds such as grouse and woodcock are especially abundant in mixed-age forests in the northeast and west and the reverting farmlands closer to the coast. These are wild birds offering great shooting, and many guides employ either pointing or flushing dogs. Pheasants are stocked in some areas, and a few guides offer hunts on their own stocked shooting grounds. As for waterfowl, Maine has plenty of lakes, ponds, rivers and streams that hold ducks. Common dabbling ducks include wood ducks, mallards, teal and black ducks, with commmon diving ducks being ring-necked ducks, goldeneyes, buffleheads and mergansers.

There is also good field shooting for Canada geese, with early seasons for mostly resident birds. A morning on the rugged coast hunting sea ducks is another unforgettable experience. Imagine being perched on a ledge or bobbing in a boat with sea smoke all around while eiders, scoters and long-tailed ducks buzz the decoys. Whether you prefer to spend a crisp fall day with dogs chasing grouse or to get up early to set decoys and blinds to catch ducks moving at sunrise, Maine offers some of the best wingshooting anywhere.

Freshwater Fishing

If you like freshwater fishing, Maine is the place to be. In fact, more than 90% of all of the remaining wild brook trout in the US are found in Maine. Brookies are fun to catch with a fly rod, and you can spend a glorious day wading in small streams or casting from a boat for them. Maine is a great place to find other varieties of trout as well. Brown and rainbow trout are most abundant in the southern part of the state, and they also are found in two of Maine’s largest rivers: the Kennebec and Penobscot. Lake trout, also known as togue, can be found throughout the state.

Landlocked salmon swim in more than a hundred lakes throughout Maine. Several of these—Sebago, West Grand, Sebec and Green—harbor native landlockedsalmon populations, while many others are stocked. Maine is nationally known for its excellent bass fishing. Largemouth bass often lurk along the weedy shores of shallow lakes and ponds, while smallmouths tend to hide along the rocky shorelines of clear ponds and rivers. And don’t forget Maine’s panfish, like yellow and white perch. These smaller, spiny fish are great for family fishing trips or any first-time angler.

FISH FLY & SPIN


Maine’s rocky coasts and tidal waters offer a variety of fishing options, from striped bass and mackerel to tuna and bluefish. Stripers spend time along the Maine coast from late spring to early fall. You are likely to find these fish in the early morning or evening when the light is low. Hungry for whatever comes their way, these fish can be caught with flies, lures or live bait.

Saltwater Fishing 56

Mackerel provide a great “can’t fail” experience. Living in Maine waters from May to October, they can be found almost anywhere along the coast where the water is more than 10 feet deep. These small fish are a great option for beginning anglers as well as those who are looking for a fun day of catching lots of fish or a family outing with young children.

Bluefish occasionally arrive in coastal Maine waters south of Penobscot Bay in mid-summer. Fierce-fighting fish, they will eagerly grab a bait or lure and put up an exhilarating battle. Just watch those teeth when they get into the boat! For the ultimate deep-sea sportfishing experience, there is nothing like a tuna-fishing adventure. Tuna can grow to be huge, and one fish caught in Maine weighed more than 800 pounds. Imagine reeling in something like that!

Canoeing & Kayaking

To be surrounded by Maine’s gorgeous landscape and get that view from a canoe or kayak can be a truly transformational experience. And whether you prefer kayaking the numerous bays along Maine’s coast or a pristine inland body of water like Rangeley or Moosehead Lake, you can do so to your heart’s—and mind’s—content. Maine Professional Guides Association members offer a wide range of guided small-boat activities. From traditional multi-day canoe camping trips on rivers as well known as the Allagash and Saint John to afternoon getaways on quiet coastal waters to paddleboard outings on warm summer days.

a loon as it dives for dinner. Or picture paddling along the rocky coast, observing the myriad sea birds and perhaps spying a harbor seal sunning itself on a ledge. You don’t have to be an experienced paddler to partake in such adventures, as most guides welcome beginners and will supply not only the watercraft, paddles and life preservers but also the knowhow to get you drawing water with confidence. Many of these trips are family friendly and provide excellent chances for the entire family to share an adventure and create memories for a lifetime.

Imagine gliding through the waters of a remote lake and slipping up on a feeding moose or cruising alongside

Little Outdoor Giants

Hiking, Camping, Etc.

Maine offers millions of acres for outdoor recreation, and MPGA members offer a variety of opportunities to enjoy it. If you seek adventure in steep places, the state’s rock- and ice-climbing are well known. For those desiring a little less adrenaline in their outdoor activities, Maine offers nearly limitless hiking and backpacking—from the famed Appalachian Trail and the Hundred Mile Wilderness to day hikes along the coast and many offshore islands. Overnighting beneath the stars is a wonderful family activity, and what better way to do it than with a woods-savvy guide to help set up camp and start the fire? Memories of singalongs and roasting marshmallows will last a lifetime.

Wildlife watchers—whether they are looking to see a moose or check several bird species off of their life list—will find Maine a bountiful destination. A guide who knows the habits and habitat of various animals can provide the local knowledge and understanding to make these experiences possible. Maine winters offer still more ways to experience the great outdoors: from cross-country skiing among snow-covered fir trees to trekking on snowshoes, enjoying the scenery and searching for animal tracks on the trail. You even can travel by dogsled, spending an afternoon skimming over the snow behind a team of enthusiastic huskies.

Snowmobiling & 4-Wheeling

Because of its diversity of terrain—from deep woods to mountains to open farm country—Maine is a premier destination for off-road enthusiasts. Networks of interconnected trails allow for exploring by ATV or snowmobile. Such activities afford great opportunities for wildlife watching and are exciting ways to get to places that aren’t accessible by car and are difficult to reach on foot. In the winter Maine’s extensive network of snowmobile trails provides access to beautiful landscapes transformed by snow and ice and offers the excitement that comes with making the first tracks in freshly fallen powder. Many of these trails are groomed regularly and have clear signage.

Even if you don’t own a snowmobile, a number of guides can provide the machines, equipment and clothing—as well as the necessary instruction—to get you cruising with confidence. Of course, safety is of paramount importance, and snowmobilers need to exercise caution by sledding at safe speeds and watching for animals in the trail. So whether you choose to set out on an ATV or a snow machine, miles of adventure await. And don’t forget that few things are more enjoyable than ending a day on the trail by kicking back in a sauna or hot tub.

Maine is home to three big rivers—the Penobscot, Kennebec and Dead—that offer whitewater rafting. Experienced guides lead the trips, and they provide training in paddling techniques and safety. No experience is necessary, and all equipment is provided.

Whitewater Rafting Tony Luong

The Penobscot River flows through Ripogenus Gorge, in the shadow of Mt. Katahdin. The thrill begins with Exterminator Rapids, the Staircase Rapids and Big Heater, then it’s on to the narrow shoots and big drops of the Cribworks. There are 14 miles of excitement in all.

88

The Kennebec offers 12 miles of action, starting at the dam below Harris Station and the steep-walled gorge of the Alleyway. You’ll tackle a succession of big rapids and waves, such as Big Mama and Whitewasher,

before dropping over Magic Falls and continuing through Dead Stream and Black Brook Rapids. The Dead River offers 16 miles of nearly continuous whitewater—the most in the East. From the put-in below Grand Falls you’ll be splashing through rapids named Humpty Dumpty, Elephant Rock, Minefield and Mile Long before hitting the biggest rapids at Poplar Falls. Anyone who enjoys the outdoors and is looking for adventure can raft. Maine rafts typically hold an eight-person crew and a guide. To protect the environmental quality of Maine’s rivers, the state limits the number of rafters each day.
