If you are looking to do some fishing here in Aroostook County, you won’t be disappointed.
According to the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wilfie Bioligist Jeremiah Wood, “The trout fishing is still very good. The cool weather has extended the season in streams and the pond fishing just seems to be getting started."
Good news if you like to fish the Aroostook River. “The Aroostook is fishing good as well. Usually the lower part of the Aroostook is more productive and produces bigger trout more consistently but the upper river is still fishing pretty good,” said Wood.
If you want to try some pond fishing, the Deboullie area is always a good bet.
“There’s been quite a few people in there the last couple of weeks. It’s been fast fishing and a nice place to go,” said Wood. “And if the fish aren’t biting in one particular water, just head over to another.”
In Long Lake, the salmon bite is just beginning and they’re still catching togue in Eagle.
If you’re looking for a new spot, try Fish River Lake, near the headwaters of the Fish River. There is a public launch there, and the water holds both landlocks and brook trout.
