Hottest Brook Trout Ponds for the spring of 2014 in Washington County, Maine

This blog identifies the ponds in Washington County, Maine that provide the best odds of catching brook trout during the spring of 2014.  Many of the target ponds are below 30 acres and are therefore relatively small.  Some of these ponds could be fished from shore, but most are best fished from a canoe or other small craft.  The fishing action on these bodies of water can be fast and furious in the spring.  Trout activity typically peaks between late April and early June, after which the bite slows down due to rising surface water temperatures.

The hottest brook trout ponds in Washington County for the spring of 2014 are highlighted below in alphabetical order.  A pond is considered HOT due to its trout stocking density: everything else being equal, the more brook trout that are stocked per acre of pond, the greater the chances of catching those fish.

It is always prudent to consult the latest law book about special fishing regulations that may apply on these ponds.  The most up-to-date rules are available at www.eregulations.com/maine/fishing.  Note that the list of the hottest brook trout ponds excludes “kids only” ponds.
