While filming for an upcoming short, Aimee and I were fortunate enough to spend a week in Western Maine, walking in the footsteps of Louise Dickinson Rich—who wrote We Took to the Woods—on the Rapid River. The fine folks at Lakewood Camps accommodated us with warm beds and hearty meals, while the powerful and beautiful native brook trout provided memories that will last us a lifetime.

Maine! I’m going. Brookies!!!
Having been to Lakewood Camps and fished the Rapid River on a number of occasions, I can attest to the fabulous Brook Trout and Atlantic Salmon fishing in that area of Maine. Maureen and Whit provide a top notch experience with 5 star hospitality in the middle of nowhere!
So nice to have this in my “back yard”…
A beautiful spot, was at camp when these two filmed, was a pleasure to meet them and now to see their photos
Beautiful place and fish. I’m glad at least one corner of Maine still has those fish.
