WEATHERBY'S LODGE

As one of the oldest and most famous sporting lodges in the country, Weatherby’s Maine Fishing and Hunting Lodge origins stem from the nineteenth century and have become a way of life for many sportswomen looking for a quality fishing experience. The main lodge was built in the latter half of the 18th century and has been catering to anglers from around the globe for 150 years. Steeped in history, they are an ORVIS-endorsed fly fishing lodge.

Lodging at Weatherby’s is provided through spacious cottages nestled among the trees, with enough space surrounding them to ensure your privacy. Each of these rustic cottages has its unique character and layout, but all have either an open brick or Franklin fireplace. After all, what’s more, enjoyable after a day of fishing than relaxing by an open fire?

Cabins are of varying sizes accommodating either 1 or 2 guests, and are private, clean, and rustic with open brick fireplaces or wood stoves. In some cases, if you select your room – you may be assigned to a 2-bedroom cottage.

Private baths, electricity, screened porches, and propane heaters make your stay with us more pleasant and comfortable. We have full-time electricity with back generators in case of power outages. Daily housekeeping is included, as are gratuities for the lodge staff, including housekeeping and dining.

DINING AT THE LODGE

Breakfast and dinner are served at our private group table, while lunch, either a picnic box or hot cook-out, is provided while we’re out on the river. A cook-out is prepared by your guide and is an experience you will long remember.

As for breakfast and dinner, Weatherby’s feeds their guests fresh-baked bread, fish chowder, roast turkey, and lobster dinners, with a signature strawberry-rhubarb pie for dessert. They’re glad to cook what you catch any way you like it! A bounty of homemade bread, rolls, pies, and pastries are baked daily to accompany the delicious meals prepared by the chef.

Beer and wine are included at dinner, but they also provide coffee, tea, lemonade, or iced tea to drink. Weatherby’s can cater to clients with food allergies, vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, and lactose-free – just let us know on your registration form.

WHAT ABOUT THE FLY FISHING?

Weatherby’s fishing resource is truly world-class. Three-mile-long Grand Lake Stream has been fly fishing only since 1902 and is home to one of four strains of landlocked salmon found in the lower 48. Gin clear waters, long smooth pools, and steep, fast water all challenge the fly angler and provide the reward of a leaping landlocked salmon. Restricted to fly fishing only since 1903, the three-mile-long Grand Lake Stream offers fantastic brook trout and salmon fishing.

Our fly fishing school is private – just for The Sisterhood. We will be on the water for three full days (June 24, 25, and 26). We have one instructor for every five women, and if you happen to be more experienced at this, we’ll be sure to match you with others who are as well if they join us.

Highlights of the course will include instruction in casting, reading the water; knot tying; equipment selection; fly tying; wading, and safety. You will have plenty of on-stream time with your instructor as well as time to fish on your own. The small class size gives the instructors the flexibility to address the individual needs and interests of the participants. Everything you will need to fly fish, including waders, poles, flies, and more, is included and provided to you.
