Course Description

There's something special about hooking into hard-fighting smallmouth, one after another, while floating down a beautiful river on our guided bass fishing trip. For anglers, this unique fishery is exciting and action packed. Drift boats allow you to sneak up on feeding fish in a way that powerboats can't. And even if you've never fished before, our experienced guides will teach you the basics, and have you catching fish in no time.

You'll meet your guide at the Sabattus River Boat Launch in Lisbon, Maine. The Androscoggin River, "the Andro" as locals call it, is 20 minutes from Freeport and is gaining fame as a premier smallmouth bass fishery. This big river is surprisingly calm and easy to float in a drift boat. Our Registered Maine Guides consider this one of their home waters, and have the inside scoop on which flies and lures are working best. This opportunity presents your best chance of hooking and landing these hard-fighting fish.

We'll provide all the fishing equipment you'll need, including fly- and spin-fishing tackle. Lunch will be served during the trip. The trip averages six hours, but return time depends on the water levels of the river.

L.L.Bean does not usually cancel events due to inclement weather. However, we reserve the right to cancel an event at any time due to severe weather, low enrollment or other concerns. If L.L.Bean cancels your event, you will receive a full refund for the cost of your reservation.

Cancellation and Rescheduling Policy

*Synthetic clothing dries quickly and is the best choice for outdoor pursuits. Please do not wear cotton clothing. When wet, cotton rapidly robs the heat from your body and takes a long time to dry. We also recommend you dress in multiple layers, allowing you more flexibility to comfortably respond to the weather conditions and your level of exertion.

†Please call ahead if you plan to use your own equipment as it must pass inspection by L.L.Bean staff before use. If it's deemed unsuitable, we will provide you with the necessary equipment.

‡You can purchase a temporary fishing license at L.L.Bean's Hunting & Fishing Store in Freeport, ME. You can also obtain a license or find more information on licensing at https://www.maine.gov/ifw/fishing-boating/fishing/licenses-permits/index.html
