Not many Black Bear Outfitters in the State of Maine can equal the

well over 40 years of experience that Katahdin Valley Outfitters has to offer with Hound

and Bait hunting the Maine Black Bear. Our experience is consistent with 

our high success rate. 


 We have a Taxidermist (Top Of The World Taxidermy) which is very close by. They will pick up your trophy immediately for processing.

***We very close to many attractions - some of which include the North Entrance of Baxter State Park,  Mount Katahdin, Katahdin Woods & Waters National Monument, Bible Point, Waterfalls, Hiking Trails, Snowmobile Trails, ATV Trails and much more! The vacationer will be able to enjoy the quiet atmosphere of the countryside in the evenings, offering peaceful sounds of nature - peepers in the spring, and the crackling of a fire on a chilly fall evening. 



Why Use Us - Our Experience Shows 

Katahdin Valley Outfitters offers the outdoors men & women an opportunity to hunt (bear, moose, deer, grouse, turkey), fish, and explore the pristine Maine Wilderness. For the fisherman, we are only a few miles from the Macwahoc Lakes, Pleasant Lake, and Mattawamkeag Lake. We are right on top of streams that yield the brook trout which allow for fishing opportunities all summer long. Or enjoy a trip to Northern Maine and cozy up in one of our cabins to enjoy fishing under the ice!

Katahdin Valley Outfitters is one of the few outfitters privileged to manage Black Bear in a continuous township. Because there is no other outfitter baiting the Black Bear in Township 3-R4, we are able to keep our success rate well above average. 

If you are in pursuit of a trophy Maine Moose, Katahdin Valley Outfitters also has an outstanding record of producing Bull Moose. If you are a serious hunter and looking for a lodge that caters to the individual hunter and his or her success, Katahdin Valley Outfitters is certainly your place. We have friendly, welcoming staff, and we run our business faithfully in a Christian environment. Therefore, alcohol consumption is prohibited on the property.  

"And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, 

giving thanks to God and the Father by Him" Colossians 3:17


A Little About Our Family



*** Katahdin Valley Outfitters has been in the Nissley Family for over 40 years and was started by Stephen and Susan Nissley. Over the years, it has played a very important role in all 8 of their children's lives, as they all grew up hunting, fishing, and enjoying the Great Outdoors. Stephen has been a Registered Maine Guide since 1993, and Susan was very well known for her home-cooked meals and her excellent catering to all of her customers. In 2015, she went home to be with the Lord, and the business was handed over to 3 of their children - Andrew, Tim, and Rachael. In 2020, Tim & his wife Taylor completely took over the business and are incredibly excited to offer many new experiences to their customers. Pictured above is Tim & Taylor and their 3 children, Paisley (6)
Quinlee (4), and Lucy.  Taylor also runs and operates her own bakery, Q & P Cakes, which will be a newly added amenity to Katahdin Valley Outfitters.
