This easily accessible yet semi-remote 826-acre lake contains both coldwater and warmwater species. Small aluminum boats or canoes are perfect for fishing this small lake. Not much opportunity exists to fish from shore, and the boat ramp is not designed for large, heavy boats. There is a private campground in Alexander, and motels are available in Machias. Key Species: landlocked salmon, brown trout, white perch, pickerel. Fishing index: Local anglers hit Bog Lake for landlocked salmon early in the season, just after ice-out, which is usually in late April or early May. The lake receives annual stockings of salmon and is an unsung but steady producer. In May and June, troll around the shore of the single, large island at the north end of the lake, using tandem streamers. Gray ghost and Jerry’s smelt are highly effective, as are orange and gold Flash Kings. Use a fly rod with sinking line and 20 feet of 6-pound test leader.
