TOP Brook Trout Ponds for the 2016 Spring Fishing Season in Lincoln County, Maine

This blog identifies the TOP ponds in Lincoln County, Maine that provide the best odds of catching brook trout during the spring of 2016. A pond is considered TOP due to its trout stocking density: everything else being equal, the more brook trout that are stocked per acre of water, the greater the chances of catching those fish!
All of the target ponds are below 50 acres and are therefore relatively small. Trout activity typically peaks between late April and early June, after which the bite slows down due to rising surface water temperatures. All of these ponds are closed to ice fishing and are stocked once in the spring. More details are provided in the stocking reports compiled by the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife.

Note that the list of TOP brook trout ponds excludes “kids only” ponds. The TOP brook trout ponds for the 2016 spring fishing season in Lincoln County are listed below in alphabetical order.
