Aroostook County borders Canada to the north, east, and west. The largest county in Maine, it is called simply ”The County” by state residents. If true wilderness still exists in the East, it must be here, in Aroostook County.
Native brook trout are the number one fish in Aroostook County. This area may be one of the last and best places to encounter these speckled symbols of young America.
Aroostook County sees the coldest temperatures in Maine and sometimes in the country. Perhaps that is one of the reasons this area remains wild and free, a haven for those who seek outdoor recreation in a pristine setting.

McAllister was stronger, but drunk, and the chief mate was far nastier. Probably the chief mate. I hoped I hadn’t missed it. I had. McAllister was face-down, the chief mate kneeling on his back holding Mac’s arms up behind his head. The second mate sat on Mac’s legs. McAllister thrashed and screamed and arched his back. All three men had blood on their faces. Bosun, get the handcuffs! yelled the mate. They’re in the locker above my daybed He turned to the three Abs: Hurry! You lot, get over here and help! We manhandled McAllister to his feet, men holding onto each leg and arm, the chief mate held him by the hair.
