The Moosehead Lake Region is a fisherman’s paradise with over 74,890 acres of cool, clear water in one lake plus several famous rivers and many lakes, ponds, streams and brooks in the immediate area.
The summer season opens April 1 and closes September 30. Ask an old Maine Guide when the best time to fish is and he’ll probably tell you “trolling is usually best May, June, September; stream fishing July, Aug; fly fishing ponds May, June, and fly fishing rivers May, June, Sept”. So whether your specialty is fly fishing, trolling, or spinning, you will find memorable fishing throughout the season.
Moosehead Lake is home to over 15 species of fish including landlocked salmon, lake trout, brook trout, rainbow smelt, smallmouth bass, white and yellow perch, cusk, and more!
