Region A - Sebago Lake Region

The Sebago Lake Region, located in southernmost Maine, offers a diversity of angling opportunities for both warmwater and coldwater fisheries. The region provides excellent year-round fishing for landlocked salmon, brook trout, splake, lake trout, brown trout, rainbow trout, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, perch, and chain pickerel. Stocking maintains most lake and pond fisheries for salmon and trout. Reclaimed ponds offer a quality open water experience for brook trout, and wild brook trout are common in many small streams. All this variety can be found in the region that is home to Portland, Maine's largest city.

— James Pellerin, Regional Fisheries Biologist

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