Fishing in the Maine Beaches


Classic oceanside villages interspersed with broad, beautiful beaches of pure white sand and winding rivers that flow to the sea: this is Maine’s southern coast, where, from May through October, you can enjoy outstanding angling opportunities for striped bass, bluefish and flounder.

Charter services offer fly fishing for striped bass, mackerel and bluefish. Offshore angling is world-class, with sharks, giant bluefin tuna, cod, haddock and pollock. Coastal rivers offer excellent brown trout action throughout late fall and through the winter months. The Saco River winds its way from the White Mountains to the ocean at Biddeford/Saco, and along the way, brown trout and smallmouth bass are plentiful. Many lakes and ponds offer premier smallmouth and largemouth bass fishing.
