Sebago Lake

Sebago Lake, only 30 miles northwest of Portland, Maine, is the second largest lake in the state. With a depth reaching 316 feet, it is also the deepest lake in Maine. Sebago Lake’s 105 miles of shoreline make it a popular destination for lovers of camping, hiking, and outdoor sports. The lake and surrounding land are especially popular for fishing and golf.

Sebago Lake Fishing

Sebago Lake is known for its large populations of fish, drawing fishing enthusiasts from all over the country. Most commonly found in these waters are various types of salmon, smelt, trout, and bass. While many of these fish are native to these waters, some are stocked by the state of Maine solely for the purpose of sport fishing. The recent illegal introduction of northern pike to Sebago Lake is threatening to disrupt the ecosystem, and the state is asking anglers to notify them of any pike catches to contain the population.
