Maine offers a wide range of fishing opportunities in both freshwater and saltwater environments. Boasting over 6,000 lakes and ponds coupled with over 30,000 miles of rivers and streams, Maine is host to some of the best fishing spots in the world, and as a result is a hugely popular destination for fishing enthusiasts from around the globe. With superb saltwater fishing available on the east coast and freshwater and fly fishing available inland, Maine has something to suit every level of angler, from the absolute beginner to the seasoned professional.

Freshwater fishing venues are home to a wide variety of species, including the Brown Trout, White Perch and Landlock Salmon to name a few. Those newer to fishing may find tackling these a little daunting at first, though there is arguably no better place to start out from. Combine this with the stunning scenery that surrounds many of Maine's premier fishing spots, and you are left with a unique fishing experience that is unmatched by any other location.

Maine is particularly well known for its saltwater fishing, and enthusiasts are very well catered for. The waters around the 7,000 miles of coastline are home to a wide variety of fish, with Bass and Salmon particularly popular catches for saltwater anglers. Perhaps the best way to enjoy fishing off the coast of Maine is by boat, and there are countless organized trips available for those to get the most out of their fishing trip.

Fly fishing is also very popular, and another reason that many fishing enthusiasts flock to Maine each year. Bitterly cold temperatures and heavy snow aren't enough to keep keen anglers away either, with ice fishing particularly popular during the winter months. Again, a variety of fish can be caught including Salmon, various Trout, Bass and Whitefish.

If you're unfamiliar with the area or new to fishing, Guides are available that will gladly advise you on where to fish and even on what equipment you need if you're looking to start out. Taking advantage of the knowledge and experience of these life-long fishing enthusiasts will help you make the most of your trip and save valuable time when it comes to finding the perfect location.

In short, Maine offers some of the best fishing locations in the world. Whatever your fishing preferences, Maine has a location that is perfect for you.
