For the past 20 years, Paul Laney of Laney's Guide Service has guided world-class fishing trips throughout Downeast Maine. He targets landlocked salmon, lake trout, and smallmouth bass, although many other species can be caught. Paul primarily guides anglers on West Grand, East Grand, and Spednic Lakes, as well as Grand Lake Stream. He uses his Grand Laker canoe or 20-foot Lund Alaskan boat. Guided trips include a hearty shore lunch which is cooked over an open fire. The menu includes steak, chicken, pork chops, hamburgers, fresh fish, potatoes, onions, and of course the famed guide's coffee. Paul starts guiding the day the ice goes out, which is usually by mid-April. The salmon are two to three pounds on average, and lake trout are up to 20 pounds. Both are caught on spin and fly rods. It's phenomenal fishing, and a trip you will never forget. Paul also guides for moose, white-tailed deer, black bear, bobcat, and upland game birds.
