Fly Fishing In Maine and Casting For Recovery renew their partnership this June 4th with the 11th annual day camp for alumni of Casting For Recovery. This years’ camp will be hosted by the Rangeley Lakes Heritage Trust (RLHT) at the Cupsuptic Lake Campground on Route 16 in Rangeley. “We wanted to change things up a bit and when the opportunity to partner with the RLHT came up, we jumped at it. The campground sits right on Cupsuptic Lake and the facilities are awesome”, said Ken Beaulieu of FFIM. The event will host 20 alumni from Casting For Recovery. Each of the alumni will have their own guide for the day and will spend the day on Rangeley’s famed waters in search of brook trout and salmon. “This is one of, if not the best day on the water every year for me, said guide Greg Hutchins. It’s so much more than the fishing and although it may sound cliche, it’s really about the experience of being able to share a little with these ladies who have been through so much”. The weekend kicks off with a welcome reception on June 3rd to be held at the Outdoor Sporting Heritage Museum in Oquossoc. Author and Rangeley resident Bob Romano will make a presentation on fishing in the region to get both the sports and their guides excited for the following day.
The reception and day camp are being sponsored by Oxbow Brewing, Baxter Brewing, Bald Mountain Camps, Oquossoc Grocery, Rangeley Region Sports Shop and the Boothbay Lions Club.
