The Penobscot Salmon Club is a historic private fishing club located on North Main Street and the Penobscot River in Brewer, Maine.
Founded in 1887 and incorporated in 1894, it is the oldest fishing club in the United States. The building was erected in 1923.
The Penobscot Salmon Club occupies a 12-acre largely forested property north of downtown Brewer, roughly across from Bangor Hospital.
The site is located beside a shoal of the Penobscot River which has long been known for its productive fishing. This is called a ‘Sweet Spot’
You may have heard of an information night with a silent auction and fundraising dinner planned for this week.
This evening scheduled for Wednesday 12 evening has been postponed.
Penobscot Salmon Club says
“It is with great regret that we postpone our January 12th annual meeting and fundraiser. We don’t want to put our members or guests at risk in light of the lingering concerns of Covid and its variants. “
The planned evening has been postponed to April 13e. All planned fundraising events will take place on this date. For updates, follow the Penobscot Salmon Club Facebook page.
15 must-have items for the ice fishing season in Maine
Ice fishing is a great way to take advantage of the cold winter months in Maine. It will take you outside to get some fresh air, it is family friendly and a successful day could turn into a delicious dinner. If you’re new to the sport, we’ve put together a list of equipment you’ll need for a fun, comfortable and successful day on the ice. Some of these elements are more essential than others. Some gear may not be essential at all, depending on how you plan to fish. Again, the items we have listed are for those new to ice fishing.
Before you get to the list, be sure to dress appropriately for the cold weather. We didn’t put warm outerwear on the list, but it’s definitely a must-have. It is important to dress in layers to ensure that you are warm enough all day on the ice. If you start to get too hot, you can simply peel off a diaper. Hand warmers are also worth packing.
