Here Maine’s quaint mountainside villages, 4,000-foot peaks and two of its largest lakes afford a paradise for boaters and anglers. Sebago Lake is one of the best-known lakes for fishing in North America. Thousands of anglers throughout the country await word that the ice is out on Sebago, heralding a new fishing season and some of the best salmon and togue fishing anywhere.
This region’s countless streams and waterways offer perhaps the finest wild brook trout population in America. Smallmouth and largemouth bass as well as perch and sunfish also are available in this region. The Upper Androscoggin River, or Upper Andro, is another destination that boasts great fishing for Brown trout, rainbows, brookies and smallmouth bass. Some of the waters in the southern-most part of the region offer the few remaining opportunities to land 10-pound-plus largemouth bass.
