If you are looking to get in the water this summer, the Maine Fishing Guide and Fishing Report are full of places, which are full of valuable catch.
Whether you’re new to the area, new to the sport, or looking for new places to drop a line, there is plenty to choose from in the Maine Fishing Guide. The guide is compiled by regional fisheries biologists who have compiled a list of some of the best inland fishing spots. It also includes tips, resources and advice for freshwater fishing.
The guide divides the state into regions. In each section, the resource breaks down water bodies according to the species of fish that inhabit them. Each listing includes the locations of public water access, water depth, and where to find it in your Delorme Atlas.
Another resource for anglers is to check the MDIFW fishing report. Like the Maine Fishing Guide, the Fishing Report divides the state by region, lists quality fishing holes, and provides the latest fishing news and suggestions from Maine fishery biologists. In winter, the fishing report is a great resource for ice fishing. Their list includes small bodies of water that usually freeze first.
Before you get in the water, be sure to consult the Fishing Law Book 2021 for the rules and bag limits for the particular location.
