Kayaking

Anyone else here Kayak? If so, where in Maine?

I live in close proximity to the Androscoggin, so I am able to get out there quite often and I work right on the Kennebec, so I get to hit that up as well. I've gotten out on the ocean a few times and there's a couple of ponds and lakes in the area as well that are nice.

I mostly just enjoy the peace and quiet. Haven't done any whitewater type stuff, though looks fun.

No, but I've always thought it looked real relaxing on a nice calm lake. The rapids look like they'd be fun .... and dangerous Smile

Put in for the first time yesterday on the Kennebec. Bit on the choppy side, but nice to be back out there.

I don't kayak unless theres a fishing pole included in the trip. You could kayak (if you're ever in the area) above Old Town on the Penobscott. Lots of small Islands and very quite most times, and good access points if you go up the Milford side of the river towards Howland

I'm with Chub on this one, I can't see the purpose of any watercraft unless you can fish from it. Jet skies are as good as skeet in my book Laughing I have fished for Stripers from a kayak so I won't write them off as a viable watercraft.

That said, the upper Androscoggin River from Gilead down to Rumford holds good kayaking water, smooth stretches to some moderate class III and has a good summer population of brown and rainbow trout to boot.

If you are looking for faster water the Magalloway River near Wilsons Mills is very popular with a schedule of water releases for the kayakers listed here. The Magalloway has the added bonus of lunker brook trout (20+" fish) and landlocked salmon if you want to fish instead.

I have done quite a bit of kayaking and one of my favorite areas is the Boothbay area, lots of Islands and public access points. Good luck and enjoy

Kayaks also work well for waterfowl hunting, which is what I use mine for most of the time.
