Guided Trips in Maine

If you are looking for a fishing guide in Maine, here is a list of the best of the best. Each of these links is to a guide we know of personally, and in whom we have the utmost confidence. If you decide to fish with them, let them know we sent you. As with exaggerating about the size of fish we catch, we also like to exaggerate about the number of referrals we give!

Down East

Eggemoggin Guide Services

Captain Pete Douvarjo is as fishy a human being as ever lived. When Capt. Pete is not thinking about fish, he’s either asleep, or under anesthetic. And even under anesthetic, he’s been known to ask the doctor for the leftover thread so he can tie flies with it. Pete is a blast to fish with, and can give you the best downeast Maine has to offer. He is as excited as you when you catch a fish. Don’t go downeast without looking Pete up.
