Ice Fishing Moosehead Lake: A Maine Winter Past Time

Winter: If you are looking for a Maine winter activity that is generations old, you should head to the Moosehead Lake region for one of Maine’s oldest past times, ice fishing. Moosehead Lake and the surrounding waters are home to a variety of fish such as lake trout, landlocked salmon, and brook trout. You’ll also have no difficulty finding small mouth bass and white perch in the smaller ponds. Whether you are looking for a trophy fish or for a fun family activity, you should head out to the Northern woods and enjoy this challenging but relaxing activity. You can see if you can find the perfect spot on your own, or if you prefer to have a guild from a local lodge there are several to choose from. Don’t forget to bring your ice shack for shelter from the freezing winds.
