If you want to catch fish, go somewhere else. Says Tom Greene
Lily Bay State Park is a fine spot, and if you want to get out on the water, East Cove Marina is in close proximity. You're sure to bump into some nice folks from Abbot here, and a good close by hotel is Brewster Inn. You find the 8-mile-from-start-to-finish Blanchard to Upper Abbot sector of Piscataquis River close by; this is a class II-III whitewater segment. When the conditions are right
this segment of Piscataquis River is a fun segment of river for paddling. A type II-III, 11-mile-long whitewater sweep can be found on nearby Kingsbury Stream, the Kingsbury Pond to Coles Corner Road sector.
