A recent IFW Fishing report includes the following update for the Sebago Lakes Region:
On Little Sebago, anglers are using the rebuilt launching facility and enjoying some fine fishing for rainbow and brown trout, as well as smallmouth and largemouth bass.
The refurbished facility has a new dock system and toilet. It provides boaters with improved deep water access on Little Sebago.
“Little Sebago attracts anglers seeking both trout and bass,” said Brautigam. “The launch is used from right after ice-out almost until it ices in again.”
With the weather warming up, area waters have been heating up as well, and bass are actively spawning.
“We were conducting our bass electrofishing surveys last week and bass are actively spawning. Water temperatures were in the mid- to high 50s last week. Smallmouth bass typically spawn when the water temps hit 50, and largemouths spawn in a little warmer water, around 55,” said Brautigam.
Auburn Lake continues to produce good action for salmon and some lake trout.
Out on Sebago, it’s been a good spring if not a little inconsistent.
“It’s been hot and cold, but recently it has been very good,” said Brautigam.
Out on our smaller streams, water levels have been low, so in many streams, fish aren’t yet found throughout the waterway. “A little rain and the fish will be moving and will be found throughout the stream,” said Brautigam.
It is the time of year that water temps are rising, so once river flows increase, trout will start to move around looking for areas of cooler water. This can make it a productive time of year to fish.
