If you love winter, then you will love March in Maine. March gives you some of the best conditions for outdoor fun. It's still cold, but not too cold. It's the perfect month to do some ice fishing. Our friends at the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife have got some great tips and hot spots for you to check out.
- SEBAGO LAKE REGION-Stocked brook trout and rainbow trout still abound. Get ready for the old "hit and spit" with the Swedish pimple/worm combo!
- BELGRADE LAKES REGION-Try fishing early morning or late afternoon for low light. And if you do go on a sunny day, don't forget the sunscreen!
- RANGELEY LAKES REGION-The lake trout are still out there. This is a great time of year to take the kids ice fishing!
