TOP 10 Brook Trout Ponds for the 2014 Spring Fishing Season in Aroostook County, Maine

This blog identifies the ponds in Aroostook County, Maine that provide the best odds of catching brook trout during the spring of 2014. Some of these ponds can be fished from shore, but most are best fished from a canoe or other small craft. The 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 fishing slows down in response to rising surface water temperatures.

The TOP 10 brook trout ponds in Aroostook County for the spring of 2014 are highlighted below in alphabetical order. A pond is considered TOP due to its trout stocking density: after all, everything else being equal, the more brook trout that are stocked per acre of pond, the greater the chances of catching those fish.

Some ponds were stocked in the fall of 2013 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 available at www.maine.gov/ifw/fishing/reports/stocking/index.htm.

It is always prudent to consult the latest law book about special fishing rules 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 TOP brook trout ponds excludes “kids only” ponds.
