Verona Island is set in the mouth of the Penobscot River, at the head of Penobscot Bay. The waters surrounding the island are an unheralded yet productive striped bass fishery. Fishing from shore is limited to the area around the boat ramp. You really need a boat to fish here effectively. Historic Fort Knox, in Prospect, overlooks the river and Verona Island. The Waldo-Hancock suspension bridge connects the island to the mainland at Prospect, and a shorter, more modern bridge is its link to the mainland at Bucksport. There is a campground on Verona Island near the entrance to the Waldo-Hancock suspension bridge, and Bucksport offers plenty of motels. Key Species: striped bass.
