Maine has 6,000 lakes and ponds. Clear and cold glacial lakes provide

other fine sport fish. Sebago Lake which lies just 30 minutes northwest

Moosehead Lake region is prime for brook trout fishing after ice out.
Nearly every lake and pond in the area will contain small- or large-mouth
bass or trout.
Maine's coastline is a vast set of nooks and crannies yielding a vast saltwater
fishery. There are very numerous miles of shoreline for the striped bass or striper fisherman and the is bountiful. Legendary striper surf casting locations

fishery is good too but not developed like some of the neighbor states.
