Fishing in Downeast & Acadia


The bold, seaside mountains of Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island offer unparalleled natural drama. The island’s primitive beauty has drawn visitors from all over the world for hundreds of years, who come to enjoy the landscape and the exciting offerings of the region’s hub, Bar Harbor.

The inland lakes of Acadia offer fine fishing opportunities, and the Park’s 57-mile network of beautiful carriage paths offers great hiking, biking and horseback riding opportunities. The waters of the surrounding region, from the clear waters of West Grand Lake to Alligator Lake and Great Pond, offer brook trout, lake trout and salmon hot spots as well as white perch, pickerel and trophy smallmouth bass.
