Region B - Belgrade Lakes Region

The Belgrade Lakes Region extends from central to midcoast Maine and provides a variety of fishing opportunities. Landlocked salmon and lake trout fisheries exist throughout the interior of the region. Stocked brook trout and brown trout can be found virtually region-wide and many waters offer year-round fishing opportunities. This area supports many robust populations of largemouth and smallmouth bass that attract anglers from throughout the state and the country.

— Jason Seiders, Regional Fisheries Biologist

Special fishing laws may apply to these water bodies. Always check the current Maine Open Water & Ice Fishing Laws first!
