The Joy of Fishing in Maine

Fishing in Maine from Maine Office of Tourism on Vimeo. If you enjoy fishing, there’s a good chance you’ll be hooked on this fun sport in the state of Maine. The coastal splendor  and its presence as the most heavily forested state in the nation makes Maine a great area to enjoy this beloved cheap recreational activity. Along the way — and depending upon location — you might catch wild arctic char, trout, striped bass and bluefish, to name a few. The unspoiled scenic beauty, whether coastal or inland, just adds to the overall experience. On a “scale” of one to 10, Maine is definitely a “10!” To get a virtually complete education on family fishing, fish species, fishing regions, saltwater and freshwater fishing, sporting camps and styles of fishing in Maine, we recommend logging onto the Maine Office of Tourism Fishing Page. Or, just check out the video above and we think you’ll fall in love with Maine fishing, hook, line and sinker!
