Fishing in Greater Portland & Casco Bay


A picturesque, small city sitting atop a hill that looks across a bay dotted with islands, Portland comes from the sea. A fleet of boats serving summer fishing enthusiasts operates out of the city’s downtown waterfront.

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 lively populations of striped bass and bluefish, which can be caught by surf casting or by small boat. Offshore anglers can be served with the challenge of landing shark, cod, haddock, pollock and even the awesome bluefin tuna.
