What's Happening Around Jackman Maine
Jackman and Moose River have been catering to snowmobilers for well over 20 years. The snowmobile trails are ideally located for access to accommodations, restaurants and services of all kinds. From the Jackman-Moose River Region, the ITS trails can take you North into the Province of Quebec, south to the Forks, west to Eustis/Rangeley, or east to the northeast Carry, Rockwood, Greenville and beyond. There is no region of Maine that cannot be reached by snowmobile from Jackman (that is if THEY have snow!). Remember, we get the snow first and lose it last. Get our up-to-date trail reports below!
Snowmobile Trail reports
Ice fishing is an extremely popular sport. The Lakes and Ponds in the region - Big Wood Lake, Little Big Wood, Holeb Pond, Long Pond and Spencer Lake - are usually thick enough to travel on by season open (January 1st) and stay frozen well into March.
Even at night, you may see lights scattered over the lake as Big Wood is especially noted for its large Cusk population. Other common fish are Salmon, togue, Brook trout, and splake. Be sure to enter the local fishing derby or take advantage of Maine's Free Fishing Days in February! Children of all ages get a thrill when they see their flags pop up hoping that they got "the big one"
The Jackman-Moose River Region is rich in game and opportunities for hunting and trapping throughout the winter season. Deer season (muzzleloader) continues through December as well as for Grouse and Quail. As the snow falls, you can hunt Snowshoe Hare through March, Bobcat and Fox through February and the Eastern Coyote have no closed season. All will have the prime pelts in winter and are a challenge for the avid hunter or trapper.
Who says that hiking is only a summer sport? Not in Jackman. Put on your snowshoes and take a hike! Follow summer hiking or bike trails and enjoy nature while walking atop fluffy white snow amidst tall evergreens, blue skies, and perfect serenity.
Geocaching is "a high-tech treasure hunting game played throughout the world by adventure seekers equipped with GPS devices." There are about 26 locations in this region, many are accessible in the winter via snowmobile or snowshoe. Before you visit Jackman, look up the caches in our zip code of 04945 to participate in the hunt. Don't forget to bring something to leave in the geocache. This is great fun for families.
PHOTOGRAPHY IN MAINE
You do not need to have a rifle or a GPS device to enjoy hunting in Maine. The winter scenery in this region can be captured with your camera too. Take a shot at wildlife, trees covered with snow, a babbling brook meandering around thick ice and snow covered ground, or, best of all, capture the good times you have while visiting the Jackman-Moose River region.
