The Penobscot Salmon Club is a historic private fishing club on North Main Street and the Penobscot River in Brewer, Maine.

Established in 1887 and incorporated in 1894, it is the oldest fishing club in the United States. The building was erected in 1923.

The Penobscot Salmon Club occupies a largely wooded 12-acre property north of downtown Brewer, roughly opposite the hospital in Bangor.

The site is located next to a shoal on the Penobscot River that has long been known for its productive fishing. It is what is known as a ‘Sweet Spot’’

You may have heard about an informational night with a silent auction and fundraising dinner scheduled for this week.

That evening scheduled for Wednesday evening, Jan. 12 has been postponed.

Penobscot Salmon Club says

“It is with great regret we are postponing our January 12th Annual Meeting and Fund Raiser. We do not want to put our members or guests in jeopardy in light of continuing concerns of Covid and its variants.”

The planned evening has been pushed to April 13. All the events planned for the fundraiser will take place on that date. For updates follow the Penobscot Salmon Club’s Facebook page.


15 Must-Have Items For Ice Fishing Season In Maine

Ice fishing is an excellent way to embrace the cold winter months in Maine. It will get you outdoors for some fresh air, it's family friendly, and a successful day could yield a tasty dinner. If you're new to the sport, we put together a list of gear you'll need for a fun, comfortable, and successful day on the ice. Some of these items are more essential than others. Some gear may not be essential at all, depending on how you plan to fish. Again, the items we listed are geared towards those who are new to ice fishing.

Before we get to the list, remember to dress appropriately for the cold weather. We didn't put warm outerwear on the list, but it's definitely a must-have. Dressing in layers is important to ensure you're warm enough throughout the day on the ice. If you start getting too warm, you can simply take a layer off. Hand warmers are also worth packing.
