Freshwater Fishing

Lakes and ponds in southern Maine offer a variety of fish species. Black bass, pickerel, whitefish, white and yellow perch, and brown bullhead are the more popular warm-water species. Brook, brown and lake trout (called togue in Maine) are common, as are landlocked salmon. Check with local tackle shops for fishing conditions. Most of the streams and brooks in southern Maine are hidden in summer by heavy brush growth along the shorelines. Bring along waders or a canoe. You will need insect repellent, but there will be no crowds, and the fishing is excellent.

LICENSE INFORMATION Fishermen age 16 and older are required to buy a license for fishing inland waters. A resident license is: Season $25, one-day $11. Non-resident fees, not including the agent’s fee, are as follows: Season, $64; 15-day, $47; seven-day, $43; three-day, $23; one-day, $11. Nonresident fishing licenses are sold at tackle shops as well as at municipal clerks’ offices. Fishing licenses may be purchased online from the State of Maine at maine.gov/ifw. Maine’s Free Family Fishing Days will take place on June 2-3, when anyone whose license has not been suspended or revoked may fish without a license. All other laws and regulations apply on those days. Make sure to be familiar with regulations concerning bag limits and size. Maine law demands that a fish taken from inland waters be killed and become part of the legal bag limit or immediately returned to the water from which it was taken. No species may be kept on stringers or in live wells or buckets except during a licensed fishing tournament. A full explanation of Maine fishing regulations, including specific rules for each water body, is provided in booklet form upon purchase of a license and is also available as a digital edition online at eRegulations.com/ maine/fishing. Pregnant and nursing women, women who may become pregnant and young children should not eat freshwater fish from Maine due to mercury accumulation in the fish from air pollution. However, one meal per month of brook trout and landlocked salmon is considered safe. Fishermen are also reminded to avoid the use of lead tackle, which causes fatal lead poisoning in loons and other waterfowl. Steel, tin, bismuth or plastic are recommended.

RELEASING FISH

AQUATIC PLANTS

The Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife offers the following tips for releasing fish unharmed: 1. Time is of the essence. Play and release the fish as quickly and carefully as possible. An exhausted fish may be too weak to recover. 2. Keep the fish in the water as much as you can. A fish out of water is suffocating, and may injure itself on rocks. Just 30 seconds of air exposure can decrease its life span. 3. Be gentle. Wet your hands before handling any live fish. Keep your fingers away from the gills. Don’t squeeze fish and never drag fish onto the bank. 4. Remove the hook with small pliers or a similar type tool – if the hook is deeply embedded or in a sensitive area such as the gills or stomach, cut the leader close to the snout. Make an effort to use regular steel (bronzed) hooks to promote early disintegration. Do not use stainless or gold-plated hooks. 5. To revive a fish once it is back in the water, hold it in a swimming position in the water and move it gently back and forth until it is able to swim away.

Under Maine law, it is illegal to transport any aquatic plant on the outside of a vehicle. It is illegal to sell, propagate or introduce to Maine waters any of the 11 invasive aquatic plants. All motorized watercraft on inland waters must display a Lake and River Protection Sticker. A new sticker must be purchased every year. Invasive aquatic plants are a real and serious threat to Maine’s lakes, ponds, rivers and streams. These alien plants are not native to Maine waters. When introduced, they outcompete beneficial native plants, spread rapidly and interfere with navigation. Boating activity is the primary way in which plants spread from one water body to another. Plant parts carried on boats, motors, trailers and fishing gear from an infested water body to one that is not can lead to disaster. Plants can survive out of the water for days. Once introduced to a water body they can spread rapidly and become a major nuisance. There is no known method of eradicating invasive aquatic plants once they have become established.

Saltwagter Fishin

In late May, striped bass begin to migrate into Maine waters, beginning with the younger fish, called “schoolies” with an average weight between 1 and 8 pounds. As the summer progresses, larger bass enter the coastal rivers and estuaries and live bait and surf fishermen regularly land fish in the 25- to 40pound range. Maine residents and nonresidents who have a

valid freshwater fishing license in the state need only to check off the box on their license application to indicate that they intend to fish saltwater. Saltwater fishermen who do not have a freshwater fishing license are required to participate in a national registry. Some fishermen are exempt, including youth and those fishing from chartered boats. Online saltwater registration costs $1 for Maine citizens and nonresidents. There are excep-

tions — and updated information and detailed regulations are available at maine gov/dmr/recreational-fishing/licenses/registry.html. Daily bag and length limits apply, varying by species. Fishing regulations allow a daily limit of only one striped bass per day, 28 inches or greater. All other stripers must be released immediately. Use of a gaff to land a striped bass is illegal, as is use of more than two treble hooks or bait on treble hooks. When using bait, only a nonoffset circle hook can be used, with some exceptions.

line fishing spots is not difficult in southern Maine. The Saco River is by far the most productive and dozens of shoreline fishing spots are readily accessible to the public. The Saco River also has two any-water boat launching ramps, one near Cataract Dam in Saco, near the Saco Yacht Club, that accommodates about a dozen trailers, and another off Route 9 in Biddeford, the Marblehead Boat Launching Area, which accommodates large vessels and has parking for more than 70 trailers. Another ramp is located on the Saco side in the parking lot at Camp Ellis, but is dry at low tide. The same tackle used

Summer 2018

for inland trout and bass is suitable for striped bass fishing. Surface lures such as Rebels and Rapalas work best, in silver and blue patterns. Due to the fragile nature of the striped bass population, fishermen are urged to change hooks on all lures from triple hooks to singles, or simply pinch down the barbs. A taut line will allow easy landing of fish and easy release. The most productive time for striped bass fishing in southern Maine is two hours either side of either high or low tide, using lures. Largest fish are taken using live or natural baits on dark murky days or at night. Stop by a local tackle shop for pointers.

MACKEREL

TUNA AND SHARK

Light tackle and fly rods make the sport more enjoyable. Shoreline fishermen might find plenty of competition, especially along the breakwater at Camp Ellis. Small diamond jigs and multiple-hooked Christmas Tree rigs should help you harvest mackerel when the tides are right. Fishermen can expect the greatest chances of success during an east wind and especially after a storm blowing from seaward. There is no daily bag limit on mackerel.

Tuna and shark fishing has gained in popularity in recent years, now that local charter boats have rigged for these monsters of the deep. Tuna fishing tournaments each August yield fish in excess of 600 pounds. A day’s charter for up to six people can be arranged for a fixed fee, with all tackle included. Hunting for tuna is a daylong adventure, which takes you as far as 50 miles offshore. Many times the boat ride and a few whale sightings are all you’ll get for your money. Tuna fishing is tedious, but the reward is a once-in-a-lifetime thrill of battling a large fish on sporting tackle. A federal highly migratory species permit is required for Bluefin tuna. Call 888-872-8862. A charter service that differs from customary ground fishing boats in tourist areas is needed for shark fishing. It is common to hook a dozen sharks during a day’s outing; most boats practice catch-and-release fishing. The newest thrill in offshore fishing is to battle sharks on a fly rod. If fishing for coastal sharks, NOAA permit is necessary. For a full listing of saltwater fishing regulations, visit maine.gov/dmr/recreational-fishing/ regs-tips. Headquarters for offshore fishing in southern Maine is Saco Bay Tackle Company.

BLUEFISH Some years, the bluefish drive the bait right up onto the beaches and chase swimmers out of the water; other years, the species scarcely show. This depends upon water temperature and how much bait is driven inshore. Heavier tackle is advised when chasing bluefish (a wire leader, 18-inch, 45-pound) and heavy gloves for landing the fish to be released. Bluefish are very dangerous to the unsuspecting tourist/angler who might not realize this fish has hundreds of razor-sharp teeth and vise-like jaws. Imagine a piranha that weighs up to 18 pounds. Note that there is a three-fishper-day limit on bluefish with no minimum length.
