Fishing in Maine
Maine has some world-class fishing opportunities! Maine’s fishing laws can be confusing and are based not only on what body of water being fished (lake, pond, river or ocean) but also by the
location (town or county), species and at times the name of the body of water being fished. Rules and regulations can change seasonally and annually. Know the law and stay informed.
Hunting on Private Land: Ask First
Most of the land in Central & Southern Maine is privately owned. Even if the land is not visibly posted, it’s best to ask permission before hunting, fishing, hiking or using someone else’s property. You can check out land ownership e.g. names of owners through town offices.
