Rangeley Lake was a popular fishing destination even during the Victorian era. Nineteenth-century anglers reached the lake’s hotels and sporting camps after a lengthy stage ride from Portland and a short steamboat trip. Brook trout weighing up to 10 pounds were the ultimate goal. Today, this 6,000-acre lake set amidst magnificent mountain scenery is still a popular destination for anglers. Camping is available at Rangeley Lake State Park. Rangeley Lake is heavily stocked. In 1995 alone, 3,132 landlocked salmon and 9,216 brook trout were stocked here. Boats and canoes are useful, and some bank fishing is available. Key Species: landlocked salmon, brook trout.
