Fishermen flock to Maine to cross Arctic char off their bucket list
This spring fishing season, many are dreaming of pursuing the hard-to-catch rare species.

...Wildermuth is not the only fisherman who has gone to extremes and traveled from so far away to catch the rare fish.

Maine is the only state in the continental U.S. that has Arctic char, or blueback trout. It’s found in only 14 waters in the state.

In recent years, word has spread. More fishermen who have had the wild fish on their bucket list have traveled here, said Frank Frost, the state’s fisheries biologist in northern Maine and its species expert.

Arctic char date back to the last Ice Age, when the glaciers retreated in the Northeast and left the deep-water fish in cold-water ponds and lakes. But in every other state outside of Alaska and Maine, the char populations have died off.

The Artic Char is a truly delicious fish. I was lucky enough to dine with a good friend who had caught one. God bless the beautiful waters of the State of Maine.

The pristine beauty of Bald Mountain Pond, yields not only an abundance of wonderful fish but also majestic vistas to drink in with our eyes.
