Maine Guide Dave Conley recently guided a canoe trip for Chip and Lani Cochrane of Allagash Canoe Trips. Our three day trip was into Lobster Lake, West Branch of the Penobscot watershed.  We camped at Ogden South for two nights, hiked up Lobster Mtn., fished, paddled and viewed wildlife.

Webster Stream Canoe Trip

Above pictures where taken on June 18-22, 2012 Webster Stream Canoe Trip with East Grand School students. webster Brook/Stream is an excellent back country, dam controlled, whitewater canoeing adventure available all summer long for adult, scout and youth groups looking for exciting back country whitewater canoeing adventure in Maine. Being in reasonably good physical condition and having good basic canoeing and camping skills required. Ages 14 and up.

Starting in the Allagash Wilderness Waterway at the Chamberlain Thoroughfare or Telos Landing, we sneak out the ‘back door’ of the Allagash via the Telos Cut. This is the route that Henry David Thoreau traveled more than 150 years ago on his way to Bangor. Below Telos Lake, we paddle the mile long Telos Cut (class II-III) to Webster Lake. It is 3 miles across Webster Lake and 6.5 miles to Indian Carry, a class III drop that can be run or lined. The next 2 miles to Grand Pitch has several class III ledge drops that can be paddled or carried. Grand Pitch is a mandatory 1/2 mile carry. Shortly after is Grand Lake Matagamon. It is 8.25 miles down lake to the Dam or take out at a landing near the north entrance to Baxter State Park.

Distances and recommended days (including extended trips with Allagash and the East Branch of the Penobscot Rivers.)

Telos to Grand Lake Matagamon, 24 miles, 4 days

Telos to Whetstone Falls, 51 miles, 6-7 days
