We have state of the art equipment, and are proud to offer our guests the comfort and ease of a Pavati Drift Boat. This is an amazing boat that has doors making it easy for elderly (or not-so-coordinated) folks to get in and out of the drift boat! We also have a 2012 custom built for us Clackacraft Drift Boat. When the water is low, we have two row frame rafts to get sports to those fishing holes on the Kennebec River!

Master Maine Guide, Scott Snell, has been an area guide since 1989. Growing up at Wilsons since 1983, has provided him the opportunity to live and play in the area, gathering knowledge and experiences most envy!

Colby Snell has his Maine recreation, fishing, and hunting guide licenses. Living here, fishing, hunting, and following his father around all of his life made it an easy decision for him to become a fourth generation guide. We are excited to continue to grow the guide service business and add new adventures to our offerings!


Our most popular trips are half-day guided drift boat trips that run the upper river early in the morning or later in colby2017.jpgthe evening to capture the best fishing hours of the day.  Never fly fished before? Not to worry, we provide instruction and lessons, too.  We also offer Small-Mouth Bass Fishing trips on the West Outlet of the Kennebec River, Scenic Lake Cruisesand Lake Fishing!  We don’t stop in the winter as the lake transforms to a hard surface, we offer great ice fishing opportunities from our lakefront cabins on Moosehead Lake, Maine.
