Moosehead Lake Professional Review and Guide

"Moosehead Lake, 30 miles long by 20 miles wide, is the largest lake contained in any one state east of the Mississippi. Here the mighty Kennebec River begins its journey to the sea. Moosehead Lake’s deep, pure water is ideal for coldwater species, which is why Maine’s three native salmonids are found here in such abundance.

You can fish from shore in many areas, but will need a boat to thoroughly explore this huge body of water. The fishing and hunting opportunities on and around Moosehead Lake have spawned a local service industry. Guide services, campgrounds, and boat and airplane trips are all available at the lake. Special fishing regulations include a slot limit on lake trout. There is camping at Lily Bay State Park and in Rockwood. Key Species: lake trout, landlocked salmon, brook trout"
