At 7,850 acres, Umbagog is big, so explore its shores for upland birds using one campsite as a base, or travel up and down its length. There are 32 remote wilderness sites here, accessible only by canoe or boat, and at this time of year, you'll have your choice. The only extra requirements on the National Wildlife Refuge land are nontoxic shot and a blaze orange cap and vest. Lake Umbagog holds impressive landlocked salmon and brook trout to five pounds in its northern half, especially near the mouth of the Rapid River in the northeast. The southern half of the lake is shallower and harbors superb smallmouth bass.
