Deirdre Fleming has been an outdoor reporter at the Portland Press Herald/Maine Sunday Telegram for 15 years and a reporter in Maine for 22. She has traveled to every corner of Maine to report stories, camped across all 16 counties, and met thousands of Mainers whose greatest pleasure is to work and play outdoors. She’s seen biologists trap 500-pound bear, watched charter captains land high-jumping makos, camped on Moosehead Lake (literally on the lake) in winter, and retraced Gov. Percival Baxter’s first trip to Mt. Katahdin. She likes nothing better than to get an exclusive interview on a controversial outdoor topic and then hear that Mainer say her article was spot-on. She is often asked, but still doesn’t know her favorite Maine wildland. A graduate of Georgetown University and the University of Missouri, Fleming lives in Portland with her partner and their rescue dog and cat. In her free time, she loves to ski, fly fish, hike, hunt, mountain bike race, and wilderness camp where there are no people.
