The St. George River, a 42-mile-long scenic trout stream, is specially managed for brown trout. It is one of a handful of Maine trout rivers where year-round angling is permitted. Wading is the best way to fish the river, but you can also fish from the bank in many areas. A whitewater canoe race takes place here each April, but fishing from a canoe is not practical. Special regulations include a 12-inch, 2-fish daily limit on trout, an open season from January 1 through December 31, and a 2.5-mile-long no-kill section from the Ghent Road in Searsmont to the upstream side of the Maine Route 105 Bridge in Appleton. Camping is available at Camden Hills State Park on U.S. Route 1 in Camden. There are motels in Camden, Northport, and Belfast. Key Species: brown trout, brook trout and smallmouth bass possible.
