Anglers can’t miss with so many rivers, lakes, ponds and streams to fish. Piscataquis County is swimming with the kind of year-round fishing action that anglers from elsewhere can only dream of. Coldwater species include landlocked salmon, lake trout (togue) and brook trout. Lucky anglers may also hook brown trout, rainbow trout and splake, a brook trout/rainbow hybrid.
The region’s warm water fisheries are just as tempting. Plentiful perch and sunfish make for great family fishing fun, while pickerel and an excellent smallmouth bass fishery provide tackle-busting action for anglers looking to do battle. Sebec Lake is well known for giving up some big smallmouth bass.
Piscataquis draws avid fishermen in both summer and winter seasons. For more information on ice fishing, check out winter activities.
