River Fishing at Moosehead
A scenic river in the Moosehead Lake Region

Fishing - Lake, Ponds and River

Fishing in the Moosehead Region offers something for everyone! A glance at any map reveals a number of bodies of water ranging in size from Moosehead Lake to ponds of only a few acres. There is plenty of action for spin casters as well as for fly casters; for novices and for experts. Some waters are easily accessed by car while others require some hiking and carrying. Among the popular species are bass, perch, trout, salmon, and togue. Although Maine has an energetic stocking program, many of the waters contain wild fish - a pleasure to catch and to see.

If this is your first time fishing in the Moosehead area, we recommend the use of a guide who will be able to help you achieve your goals and will offer a wealth of information on the great outdoors in general. Basic fishing outfits can be purchased from several stores in town. Read an ESPN Outdoors article on flyfishing in the Moosehead Lake area here.

Be sure that you have a license and an up-to-date fishing regulation book. There are several local sites where you may purchase a license, or you may apply for one online from the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries & Wildlife.
