If you want to catch fish, go somewhere else. Says Tom Greene
Not far from Whetstone Pond, you'll find Big Indian Pond which is a striking lake. From Whetstone Pond you acquire a good view of Little Russell Mountain, and if the weather is good, you can go for a hike along the Big Squaw Mountain Trail. Lakes are delightful; Great Moose Lake is a lake that's in close proximity to Whetstone Pond. Looking for some flowing water? Try Bennett Brook, and if
you need a place to stay Lodge at Moosehead Lake is a great choice. You find the 8-mile-long Blanchard to Upper Abbot segment of Piscataquis River nearby; this is a class II-III whitewater bit.
