Nezinscot River Professional Review and Guide
"This heavily stocked trout stream in Maine’s western mountains is scenic even by Maine standards. In 1995, 2,500 brown trout were stocked here. You can fish by wading, from the bank, and by canoeing. Special fishing regulations include catch-and-release, artificial-lures-only, and an open fishing season from January 1 to December 31 from the Turner Mill dam downstream to Meadow Brook. From Meadow Brook to the Androscoggin River, the Nezinscot River is open to fishing from January 1 to December 31 with a daily limit of two trout. Check the open water regulations before fishing.
The east and west branches of the Nezinscot River join each other in Buckfield, the starting point for the Nezinscot River canoe trip. Except for a few mild rapids, this mostly calm section of river is easily negotiated from Buckfield to Turner Center, a distance of 12 miles. You are required to make one easy portage at Turner. This would be a good day trip for anglers looking for smallmouth bass and the occasional brown trout. Key Species: brook trout, brown trout, smallmouth bass."
