Umcolcus Sporting Camps July 7-10


Umcolcus Sporting Camps have invited the BITMS vets to fish, The Umcolcus Deadwater, and surrounding streams, lakes and ponds which offer great fishing opportunities. Whether you enjoy casting a fly to rising wild brook trout, or exploring a small stream with a spinning rod, it's all nearby. Fun for the novice or experienced fisherman.

Umcolcus Sporting Camps offer a secluded escape for those seeking an authentic Maine experience whether hunting, fishing, or a family vacation. There's something for everyone. Located in the northern part of Maine's Penobscot County (T8-R6) the Umcolcus Sporting Camps have served sportsmen and vacationers for over three generations since 1917. We hope you have enjoyed the long history of Umcolcus Sporting Camps, ( located under About ), and it is very important to me to continue this long "tradition" as the new owner as of March 2018. I hope that all outdoor enthusiasts have a chance to come and visit - "the way life used to be".

Thank you
Jeff Fay,
Umcolcus Sporting Camps

Andro River fishing - Drift Boats July 29


Drifting the Androsscoggin River in drift boats with Western Maine Guide Service and William Clunie. This will be our fourth year of drifting the Andro with Bob Harkins, Laurin Parker and William Clunie. Last year provided a full day of Bass fishing on a lazy moving River. The action was continuous and the fish ranged from small to very large. The River has always produced nice Bass as long as I can remember, fishing it as a kid.

Ocean Fishing @ Riverfront - August 24


Last years event was filled with such a diverse assortment of fish caught. We hooked into Bluefish, Pollack, Macerel, Flounder, Shark, Redfish, Cod, Haddock, and Hake. What a great assortment of catches. Some of the vets had the opportunity to take home some fillets of their catches. Fantastic!

The boats and crews of the following vessels all volunteered their time, resources and expertise to get our veterans and family members safley to and from the ocean. Thank you to all the owners and crew for your help.
