Floating the Penobscot River above Old Town, ME

Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me the approximate times a canoe float trip would take from the Greenbush launch to the Costigan launch, and/or Greenbush to the Old Town launch off of 43 by Indian island? Any advice, tips, warnings? Gonna try it on the holiday weekend with the wife and camera and then again solo with the fly and spinning gear.  There will be fishing done on both trips, but I would be anchoring and a little more thorough on the second trip.

From Greenbush to Costigan won't take to long. (depending on how long you stop and fish) The river is not flowing to fast up there. I would fish around the islands right across from the ramp at both places. From Costigan to Old Town the river picks up just a little, but you wouldn't have any problems until you get below. You will be drifting down past some pilings, don't pass these areas up, then as you get to the end of them, you will see some fast water. It's not a problem to run in a canoe as it is only for a quick second, then back to fishing and your looking at Orson Island and Indian Island. The trip around Orson is also a good place to hit. You'll see lots of wildlife, and catch lots of bass. I would really plan to launch at Greenbush and end up at Old Town. You'll be ready for a cold beer and bed after that trip. Good luck and happy fishing....
