In this August 1, 1888 John Dunn photo, three fisherman use Table Rock as a casting platform to tempt some of Moosehead Lake’s brook trout.
In the late 19th century, a canoe, bamboo fly-fishing pole loaded with silk fly line and a hand-tied fly were considered state-of-the-art equipment. The three fisherman are dwarfed by the dramatic backdrop of Mount Kineo, a hallmark of Moosehead Lake that can be seen from miles around.
