Fishing

Fishing in Greater Portland & Casco Bay

Fishing boats on the water in Greater Portland & Casco Bay.

A picturesque, small city sitting atop a hill that looks across a bay dotted with islands, Portland is derived from the sea. A fleet of boats serving summer saltwater fishing enthusiasts operates in the area, providing an excellent resource for fishing in Maine.

Inland, landlocked salmon fishing is best in spring and fall, and in summer bass fishing provides the best action on inland waters. There also are excellent opportunities to catch white perch and brook trout. Along the coast are good populations of striped bass and bluefish, which can be caught by surf casting or out of a small boat. Offshore anglers can enjoy the challenge of landing shark, cod, haddock, pollock and even the rare bluefin tuna.
