This relatively shallow, 1,677-acre pond is set in a semi-remote part of Washington County. The East Machias River exits Crawford Lake at its south end. This lake sees little fishing pressure and fishing for the below-listed species is excellent. You will need a boat or canoe, since little opportunity exists for fishing from shore. Crawford Lake has a special fall fishing season from October 1 to November 30, during which all trout, landlocked salmon, lake trout, and bass must be released alive at once. Primitive campsites are located on an island in the northeast section of the lake and at the south end of the lake by the mouth of the Machias River. There is also a private campground in nearby Alexander. Motels are available in Baring. Key Species: smallmouth bass, white and yellow perch, pickerel, brook trout possible.
