This productive, easily accessible 1,215-acre lake has a maximum depth of 150 feet. Sheepscot Pond is about halfway between Augusta and Belfast. You will need a boat or canoe to fish here because the shoreline is private, except for the area near the boat ramp. Prevailing winds can make the lake choppy on windy days, so pick a calm day to use a canoe.
Special fishing regulations include a minimum length of 14 inches on brook trout, splake, and lake trout. Nearby Lake St. George State Park in Liberty offers camping, and motels can be found on Maine Route 3 between Palermo and Augusta. Key Species: splake, brown trout, lake trout, smallmouth bass, pickerel, white perch.
