the perfect spot awaits
With over 250 square miles of water, nearly 350 surveyed lakes, and the many tributaries that feed the Kennebec River, everyone is sure to find some of the best fishing in the state in Maine’s Kennebec Valley.
The region comprises Somerset County in the North Zone and Kennebec County in the South Zone. Seasons, daily bag, possession, and length limits vary by zone, so check before you go. You can fish the rivers, streams, and brooks in both zones and North Zone lakes and ponds from April 1 to September 30. The South Zone is open to ice and open-water fishing all year round. Common species include brown trout, native brook trout, smallmouth Bass, and the Atlantic or landlocked salmon (salmi salad).
