Fishing -- a year-round activity on West Harbor Pond

Any time of the year is the right time to go for a local fishing "excursion" on West Harbor Pond.  Whether from land, canoe, or out on the ice, fishing is always a great way to spend some time on the Pond.  Here are several great articles about fishing on the Pond, written by some of those who know best - and a warning about the possible effects of the changing ice cover:

Please remember that a valid Maine fishing license is required for anyone 16 years of age or older to fish in inland waters or transport fish taken from inland waters.  For more information see the Maine Inland Fisheries and Wildlife website.
