Millinocket Lake Professional Review and Guide

"This rocky, 8,960-acre coldwater lake lies within sight of Mount Katahdin, Maine’s highest mountain. Millinocket Lake is noted for landlocked salmon and lake trout fishing, but to the delight of white perch fans, it is also one of Maine’s best producers of bragging-size white perch.

Local anglers often catch a winter’s supply of perch in only a few days’ time. Little opportunity for fishing from shore exists. Millinocket Lake is big and mostly open, and winds can whip the surface to a froth. On windy days, do not venture far from shore in a boat less than 16 feet long. Medway offers several campgrounds, and there are motels in Millinocket. Key Species: brook trout, lake trout, landlocked salmon, whitefish, white perch, pickerel, cusk."
