I have a camp in Caratunk, Maine, this place has the strangest weather you ever saw, I'm on the east side of Wyman lake, in between big hills. Last summer I was looking at the computer in the morning and the map was perfectly clear, forcast sunny, it was raining at camp for 1/2 hour then cleared off!! blink.gif
Camp is 50 miles from home, I went to do some work there Friday, it had just started to sleet at home, hit snow 15 miles north till 15 miles from camp, then back to sleet, I can only assume from the warmth of the lake? (Elevation rises all the way to camp) Snowed and sleeted the rest of the day, I loved it!! wink.gif I just keep looking out the window at the lake and wish I could be on it, but have to wait for ice, none has formed yet. Ice fishing starts January 1st!! wink.gif

Ice was skimmed a little morning of 11/30/10 Tuesday, got here at 7am, from then on ice was actually forming till 10am when the wind started and blew it into the shore, then it warmed up and melted it all.

Snow!!...Ice.....RAIN!!..what a mess!!
Snow today just a few inches, camp is almost done, the half of camp I have insulated and finished shows on the outside as no more icicles dripping off the roof on that side!! wink.gif
Now we have to start making ice over again as the warm and rain washed it all away!! sad.gif

It's 9 in Caratunk right now so it won't take long.
Ice fishing starts in 17 days!!

Upta camp today, lake is frozen over, still some open spots in front of camp, camp is on the north end of a 12 mile lake near where the river comes in and the moving water makes it harder to freeze and all the rain has it still moving quite fast. Small snow flurry at one point, I love small flurries, don't like shoveling snow anymore!! ohmy.gif Few more shelves to build and then clean up the mess and get ready for ice fishing January 1st!! wink.gif

Went to camp yesterday 12-24-10, lake is open (not much ice) in front of camp, had around 8" of fresh snow on the ground, there is about 100' of ice in front of camp in the cove, will have to fish in there for brook trout on opening day.

What sort of fishing goes on at the dam you are referencing? Like what species are generally caught up there?

Beautiful to say the least, as "Rainbow Trought" are one of the most colorful and photogenic fresh water species.

I have learned you must take the picture as soon as the Rainbow Trout comes out of the water as the color fades very fast, the first one I caught two years ago I didn't know what it was, but it was the most beautiful fish I ever saw.
I was thinking about posting here this morning and how Caratunk weather is boring compared to the fireworks in the rest of the country!!
I'll take the cold snowy winters over tornado's any day!!

what you got there is a Dam shame, all that dock and nothing to float up to it!

did you ever see a Chum Salmon (Alaskan and N. Pacific waters) not good tasting (wifey and I were repulsed) but very unique markings as Salmon goes
