You don't want to stop in McConnell's Country Store Fly Shop for info. I work there part-time and when I'm there you could say that there isn't any degree of fly-fishing/where-to-go knowledge in the shop with me there...

I'm glad the subject of the delorme maps came up - absolute rubbish IMHO, just not enough detail and not that accurate.

I've had trouble in western mass and Maine with those.

I can only think they are designed to confuse the Russians should ever invade.

I definitely wouldn't rely on them for hiking etc

I'm curious how one would cast that jig head on a fly rod... seems like the weight might be too much and that you'd just end up snagging rocks.

I have a friend that tried fishing small senko's on a fly rod this summer too. Much the same effect... very poor casting because of the weight.

It's not much different than casting a weight woolly bugger. The fly acts differently in the water.

The older versions of the DeLorme are better as far as angler use goes. The newer ones I think they had the idea that they'd make them easier for motorists to use, but I don't see it.

I fish Pine Creek often but haven't been up yet this year. The reports I'm getting are that conditions are dangerous and fishing is discouraged right now. Large chunks of ice floating downstream are hazardous. Call the Slate Run tackle shop. Tom, Dave, or Jed will give you the latest. Temperatures are quite cold.

Slate Run Fly Shop has good, detailed maps of that area and they are reasonably priced.


I stopped by Slate Run a few times while I was there. The maps you speak of, I believe, are no longer printed (guy who made the map died and left the rights to the map with some organization that wants way too much money for the rights to print and sell the map). The USGS maps (quadrangles) are no longer sold at Slate Run due to the fact the everyone is using tablets and other electronic devices... which seems odd since there's absolutely no cell phone reception in that area (spotty isn't even a description of the cell service in the area, but I'm not complaining as I enjoyed a week with no phone calls)

Is this the map you wanted? The State Forest map is much better for getting around in the area. They didn't have any of them?

I thought the shop in Waterville still had some. Old Lefty should know.

Offline mode works quite well in a number of mobile mapping applications. I can crop and preload multiple zoom levels of the USGS topo maps for whatever region I am going to be in. Works like a charm. No cell signal required. GPS still works in airplane mode, so you can locate yourself on the nice shiny electronic topo you are carrying.

I probably should have been thoughtful and included them in my response.

For the iOS, try Galileo. I haven't used it much, because I do not have an iPhone but do have a work-issued iPad Mini, so I've been mostly just trying it because I can and to broaden my platform horizons. A tablet is still a bit impractical for me to carry on the stream.

For Android, I like OruxMaps as the mobile app. For cropping and building map datasets for offline usage, I like:

OkMap and Mobile Atlas Creator (MOBAC).

Those PC applications will let you do a lot more with geographical info, like edit waypoints or tracks, etc. I usually log my hiking/fishing marches, but sometimes forget to disable the GPS tracking until I'm a mile up the road. Those applications let me delete the errant data.

Unfortunately, some of the map dataset providers have issued cease and desist letters to mobile app authors using their data, so some of the more popular sources aren't available by default. You can find posts on forums or old config files that have the data you need to enable them, but you do so at your own risk. Fortunately, the USGS data is available to the public.

Be sure and file a report. is the Blackwell Hotel (second version) still open? You can have an $11 expertly made martini in the middle of nowhere.
