This high-quality trout stream is not far from Portland, Maine’s largest city. The idyllic setting is the kind you see on calendars: glassy runs, tumbling riffles, ferns growing along the bank, and ancient maple trees spreading their limbs over quiet pools. For the most part, the Pleasant River is easily waded. In spite of streamside brush and obstructions, some bank fishing is possible, especially in the summer when lower water levels let you jump from rock to rock as you fish. Special fishing regulations are in effect, in the form of no-kill and artificial lures only from the U.S. Route 302 bridge downstream to the River Road bridge. Motels are available in North Windham and camping is available at nearby Sebago Lake State Park. Key Species: brown trout, brook trout.
