At 10,305 acres, Big Lake lives up to its name. If you combine Big Lake’s acreage with the smaller lakes connecting to it, that figure nearly doubles. It is best to fish here with a boat. Big Lake is connected to the St. Croix River, Maine’s border with Canada, by a massive body of water called Grand Falls Flowage. Although the flowage is shallow and has a considerable current, it offers excellent smallmouth bass fishing. Special regulations include a slot limit on bass. Big Lake is a perfect location for the angler who has plenty of time and wants a quality backwoods experience. This lake is much too large to be thoroughly explored in one day. Lodging is available in Calais, and there are primitive campsites on Buckman Island and Little Pine Island in Big Lake. Key Species: smallmouth bass, landlocked salmon, white perch, pickerel, cusk
