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

This blog identifies the TOP ponds in Androscoggin 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! Trout activity typically peaks between late April and mid-June, after which the fishing slows down in response to rising surface water temperatures.

 

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. Note also that the list of TOP brook trout ponds excludes “kids-only” ponds.
