Drift fishing the Dead River – Kennebec River Angler is the creation of three friends, all border-line fishing fanatics, who have taken their time to hone their craft and are now ready to share the great fishing they have discovered. Mike, Greg and Chris have been working together as whitewater rafting guides for nearly 20 years. During that time, we’ve constantly explored the fishing potential in our area and compared them to the whole state. Quite frankly, we’ve kept them as our guarded secrets. Recently, we’ve decided that what we have to offer for fishing experiences is as good, if not better, than anywhere else in the State of Maine.

Group Trips

Maine Huts & Trails welcomes your group or club. From school groups and scout trips to reunions and retreats, we will work with you to ensure you have an unforgettable experience.

Making Advanced Reservations

We recommend you book your reservation as early as possible to ensure space, but no later than 7 days prior to arrival. All group and full-hut reservations must be made by phone or email.

Full-Hut vs. Group Rentals

Groups: A single reservation for 12 or more people is considered eligible for special, discounted rates. Other guests may be at the hut at the same time as your group. A single organizer is responsible for coordinating reservations, payments and all planning.

Full-Hut: A full-hut rental provides your group full and exclusive access to the hut. Full hut rentals are most cost-effective for very large parties.

Rates & Payment Schedule

Reservations require a 25% non-refundable deposit at booking with the remaining balance due 45 days prior to arrival. See the rates page for fees and FAQ’s for cancellation policies.
