Maine Wild Brook Trout Initiative Questionnaire

Dear Angler,

The Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife is asking you to give us your opinions on Maine’s wild brook trout fishing opportunities.

MDIFW has partnered with the University of Maine Cooperative Extension to produce this questionnaire about wild brook trout fishing in Maine.

The questionnaire is part of the Wild Brook Trout Initiative, a three-tiered effort to promote the conservation of wild brook trout, to improve communications with anglers and outdoors groups, and to market Maine’s unique wild brook trout resources.

Maine’s native and wild brook trout populations represent a unique, valuable and irreplaceable resource. The Eastern Brook Trout Joint Venture recently proclaimed Maine the last true stronghold for wild brook trout in the eastern United States, with more than twice the number of intact watersheds as the other 16 states in the eastern range combined.

Please select the questionnaire below that represents your residency status.

Thank you for your help in guiding the future management of wild brook trout resources.


John Boland, MDIFW Director of Fisheries Operations
