2014 September Aroostook County Fishing Report
Ready to get your fishing on, but not sure where the fish are biting? Well, the fishing report for September 2014 has been released!
Cold weather has already hit much of the Aroostook region, with frost covering some fields earlier this week.
According to Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife biologist Frank Frost, “Right now, the rivers and streams are at pretty low flows. As the fall rains start, fishing should pick up.”
This time of year, the upper and lower sections of the Aroostook are productive, and the Fish River downstream of Eagle Lake is a popular spot for salmon. The rehabilitated portion of the Meduxnekeag River, where river habitat was improved, should also provide anglers with some great opportunities.
There are also several areas where the department stocks trout, check the law book for waters with extended fall fishing seasons into October and November, and those areas are likely stocked with trout in the fall. Waters to try should include Arnold Brook Lake in Presque Isle, Drews Lake in New Limerick, and Nickerson Lake outside of Houlton.
