Bass Half Day Fishing Trip: Convenient, Close, & We Always Catch Fish!

Half day trips are a float trip down the lower Kennebec River in our fishing rafts, just downstream of Northern Outdoors. Plan to arrive at Northern Outdoors Resort at the appropriate check-in time. From there, you are transported to Crusher Pool, located just south of Northern Outdoors’ rafting takeout for the Kennebec River whitewater rafting trip. This is below the bridge at The Forks, Maine. A half hour from the time you leave the Resort, you’ll be on the water fishing! You’ll float from Crusher Pool on the Kennebec to Northern Outdoors, or on farther down to Graveyard Pool at Caratunk. Total trip duration is 4 – 4 1/2 hours.

At the end of the trip, you’ll be transported back to the Lodge at Northern Outdoors, about 10-15 minutes up the road. Enjoy the Kennebec River Pub and Brewery at the lodge after your fishing trip, where you’ll find hearty meals and handcrafted ales and lagers.
