Fishing in the Maine Highlands


New England’s largest lake and Maine’s tallest mountain are the gleaming centerpieces of this pristine part of the state: 40-mile-long Moosehead Lake, a mecca for anglers, campers, boaters and moose-watchers; and Katahdin, the crown of 201,000-acre Baxter State Park and the beginning of the Maine-to-Georgia Appalachian Trail.

In this vast interior region are innumerable streams, rivers, lakes and ponds in which to wet a line, as well as generations-old sporting camps which cater to visiting fishermen. The region’s waters abound with salmon, wild brook trout, lake and smallmouth bass, and several waters host the hybrid splake, an exciting, easy-to-catch fish that is a cross between the brook trout and lake trout.
