Hi there.

Welcome to my awesome fishing blog.

I'm a devoted four-season freshwater fisherman who chases trout, salmon and bass year-round on Maine's numerous ponds, lakes, streams, and rivers. I love ice fishing, open-water fishing, trolling, and fly fishing. I fish from shore, in waders, from my canoe or a powered boat.

Read on if you want to learn more about out-of-the way fishing spots or seek to increase your odds of catching more salmonids or bass.

My motto is "If I fish it, I blog about it!"

The TOP Ponds Stocked with Brook Trout for the Spring of 2017 in York County, Maine

This blog identifies the TOP ponds in York County, Maine that provide the best odds of catching brook trout during the spring of 2017. A pond is considered TOP due to its trout stocking density: all else being equal, the more brook trout that are stocked per acre of pond, the greater the chances of catching those fish!  All of these ponds cover less than 50 acres and are therefore relatively small. Trout activity typically peaks between late April and mid-June, after which the fishing slows down in response to rising surface water temperatures. Check out this blog on trolling techniques for catching trout.

 

Some ponds were stocked last fall but were closed to ice fishing. Others are stocked once early in the spring or may be stocked several times in April and May. More details are provided in the stocking reports compiled by the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife. It is recommended to check the regulations about special fishing rules that may apply on these ponds, such as daily bag limits, use of live bait fish, artificial lure requirements, limits on outboard engine size, etc. Note also that the list of TOP brook trout ponds excludes “kids-only” ponds. The one exception is Round Pond in Lyman, which is a “kids-only” pond for ice fishing, but is open to the general public during the open-water season. Hence, it is included below.
