Are you a fly fishing fan of the Moosehead Lake Region of Maine? If so, we have a special land offering of large acreage seldom available in this area at this price per acre. This 193 +/- acre forestland parcel fronts the West Outlet of Moosehead Lake and the Somerset Road in Taunton and Raynham Township. The Land The property fronts on both sides of the Somerset Road and the West Outlet for approximately 2,300 feet. No rising sea level worries here with 1,000 feet to 1,100 foot elevations on site. This makes for a gently sloping property rising up on both sides of the river. The forest is a mixture of conifers and deciduous trees. A recent timber harvest has opened up some of the forest canopy to new growth and views. Soils in this area are rocky loams mostly suited to growing trees and supporting wildlife. This is not farmland. It is a good place to build a seasonal cabin or an off-grid residence. The wilderness side of the river would be a great spot for those looking for maximum privacy to construct an outpost cabin, yurt, or tent site that would only be accessible by boat, canoe or kayak. West Outlet and Moosehead Lake The property’s river frontage is a mix of riffles and runs with a pond in the river near the center of the acreage. This makes for some interesting and varying fishing opportunities for the resident trout and salmon. Wade the faster section or cast a dry fly in the mornings and evenings to the rising salmonids from a canoe in the pond. Moosehead Lake is located just 3 miles from the property and the West Outlet dam. Fishing is good throughout this river and pond section. For those looking for more fishing water, the more famous East Outlet is just 8 miles drive and the boat landing in Rockwood and water taxi service to Mt. Kineo is only 5 miles from the property.
