The Ice Fishing Derby started last night and will be continuing into tomorrow. Moosehead Lake is so vast that the fishermen are spread out over the 44 miles of the lake. We took a ride earlier today to see some of the fishing going on. There were many ice shacks on various coves which can only be reached by snowmobile or driving a vehicle on the lake. The ice on the lake can get up to 3 feet thick, so it is a common sight to see cars & trucks on the lake. There are Ice Races on The West Cove of the lake with various vehicles being used, which should be starting soon.
These pictures are in Rockwood with Mt. Kineo in the background. On Mt. Kineo you can see a frozen waterfall. In the summer and fall this is a popular hiking trail.
