This () has taken up residence in the famous Cable Pool on the Naraguagus River in Cherryfield, Maine.

The Cable Pool was one of the most popular fishing spots during the heyday of Atlantic Salmon fishing. While restoration efforts are made to bring back this wonderful fish, the Cable Pool is now a park and a great place for a picnic.

Beavers are the second largest rodent in North America and are famous for constructing lodges and dams. Along the Naraguagus, the beavers build their lodges on the banks of deep pools and haven’t seemed to attempt to dam the river…..yet.

The Naraguagus River and it’s Cable Pool are legend for fly casters. Here is a great video of one famous Salmon angler, Ted Williams.

You can still see these rod holders along the bank….the fishermen used to line up and wait for a turn to try their luck in the Cable Pool

Working hard to save the noble Atlantic Salmon and it’s environment is The Downeast Salmon Federation.
