Cathance Lake House - view of lake Cathance Lake has one of the state’s premier landlocked salmon fisheries as well as a quality brook trout population and numerous smallmouth bass. By Maine standards, the lake is fairly large but its shores are mostly undeveloped, making its extended shoreline very scenic, wild and terrific for exploring with a canoe or kayak.

The lake has secluded sandy swimming beaches that guests love paddling to for a relaxing swim or to just bask in the sun on. There are also a number of brook trout streams that feed the lake making for terrific brook trout fishing opportunities for those who want to explore the remote parts of the surrounding landscape.
