You'll love Nahmakanta if you like hiking and fishing ponds. Most of what I know about the fishing up there came from Don Hibbs, the owner, who is very good about sharing information with his guests, and somewhat sensitive about how widely it gets shared. He's got canoes on all the surrounding ponds and generally has the fishing pretty well dialed in. There are a couple of ponds with stocked trout that offer real opportunities for trophy trout, and MANY ponds with good numbers of wild trout. There is generally a trade-off between fish numbers and fish size. Let Don know what you are looking for, and take his advice.

Agree with Jeff. Don will give good information. It's a really nice area you will have fun.

Haven’t been in a long time, but, assuming things haven’t changed much, a great base for hike out brook trout ponds! Don and Angel run a tight ship. June should be prime. The lake itself was rapidly turning from a nice LL salmon fishery to togue. Bear and Gould were my favorites.
