Many anglers see the end of summer as the end of their fishing adventures for the year, or at least until the snow falls and their favorite lake or pond is covered in ice. Others are more reluctant to pack their fishing gear and claim that fall fishing can be as good as one will find here in Maine.

“I think the biggest thing for most people is that the quality of the fish in the fall is far superior to what we see in the spring,” said guide Jeff McEvoy, who owns Weatherby Hunting and Fishing Lodge in Grand Lake Stream. “(The fish) are all ready to spawn, and they’re just fat, healthy, big. They’ve been in the lake all summer feeding on smelt, so they’re at their best in the fall when we fish for them (in the river).”
