Anglers visiting DownEast Acadia will find outstanding opportunities for freshwater and saltwater fishing. Our lakes and ponds hold a number of freshwater game species. Ocean species include mackerel, bluefish, and striped bass.

The Grand Lake system is one of Maine’s premier fishing spots for land-locked salmon. Long expanses of undeveloped shoreline above the crystal-clear waters make this a peaceful experience. Guide service and sporting camps are available; chest waders are recommended. Or find salmon at Green Lake in Ellsworth or Mopang Lake, where both salmon and splake (a brook trout/lake trout hybrid) abound. We have plenty of lakes and ponds easily accessible by small boat and canoe to fish for brook trout, some in remote locations, like Monroe Lake, others easy to find, like Long Pond in Aurora. For good action on 8- to 10-inch brook trout, head to Young’s Pond in Otis. Or head to the streams or falls to find brook trout.
