The Forks Area has everything one could hope for in a fishery.

Anglers can target world-class trout, and salmon waters, as well as a smallmouth bass fishery that will keep you busy all season long. The Forks area is renowned for spectacular salmon fishing after annual ice-out. By accessing the “H2O Line” number, anglers can enjoy some prediction of river water flows to ensure their safety.

Registered Maine Guides offer half and full day trips, either floating with a drift boat, wading various sections of the Kennebec and Dead Rivers or trolling smelt imitations that originated in the area. Some outfitters offer ice-fishing trips for salmon and brook trout during the winter. Once the water temperatures begin to climb and stabilize, smallmouth bass move to their spawning areas. Ice Out takes place between April and May. The smallmouth fishery in this area of Maine is nothing short of amazing, with fish over several pounds being common. Smallmouth are known for their aerial antics, eagerness and willingness to strike a surface lure or fly.

The Forks Area is proud to offer waters such as: The Dead and Kennebec Rivers, Wyman Lake, Indian Pond, Parlin Pond, Moxie Pond and Pleasant Pond.  There are also many Fly Fishing Only remote ponds that hold native wild brook trout.
