The East Branch of Mattakeunk Stream is a pristine wilderness trout stream with headwaters emerging from the ground in the hills of Springfield and Webster Plantation. It then meanders westerly and northerly with other small feeder streams entering along the way. Eventually it merges with the main stem of Mattakeunk Stream just before the combined flows meet the Mattawamkeag River. This is all part of the Penobscot River drainage.
The section of the stream that flows through this property is a still water section between beaver dams. This is a friendly place to paddle canoes and kayaks while watching wading birds and waterfowl or secretly viewing moose and deer that travel and feed along the edges. For the trout fisherman this is good water with nice hatches of may and caddis flies. Evenings on this still water can bring the surface alive with the splashes of feeding wild brook trout.
Springfield Maine is a very rural eastern Penobscot County town with about 400 residents. The area is mostly undeveloped forest with a few small farms along the town roads. It is located about 20 miles east of Lincoln, Maine which is the economic hub if this part of the county. The nearby Grand Lake chain is a superb and somewhat unknown recreational area with miles of conserved and protected shoreline with public access for boaters. Bangor, Maine is the nearest city at about 70 miles from the property, with Fredericton New Brunswick, Canada less than 100 miles. The main coast is just over 1 hour drive as is the Appalachian mountain trails.
