Downeast Bass Fishing Report
Smallmouth bass fishing in Eastern Maine is very popular. With dozens of waters to choose from in Hancock and Washington counties anglers constantly ask which waters are the best. Over the last 25 years the Jonesboro office has compiled average angler hourly catch rates and sizes of smallmouth bass from the best size and catch rate waters in Downeast Maine. Below is a table listing waters in alphabetical order showing their average hourly catch rates and average sizes to help anglers decide for themselves which water offers the bass fishing opportunity that best suites them.

While scanning this list, anglers need to remember that the catch rates reflect a range of average angler ability to catch bass on a per hour basis in May and June. These catch rates and average fish sizes are not from expert anglers. The catch rates also reflect the different conditions that existed on the days fished, as well as fluctuations in age class and overall fish abundance that occur from year to year through environmental factors. If you closely examine the list a trend becomes apparent - the higher the catch rates the smaller the average size of the bass. We hope you find this information helpful and interesting. Please contact us at the Downeast Regional Headquarters if you have questions regarding the quality of bass fishing in Eastern Maine (207) 434-5925.
