The Maine Fishing Guide was developed by the Fisheries Division of the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife to assist anglers in locating Maine's most common sportfish and to help plan for your next outdoor fishing adventure. This Google Earth application allows anglers to readily locate principal lake and pond fisheries for coldwater species and bass; as well as the presence of other warmwater sportfish species identified as principal fisheries or present. The fish species data layers are periodically updated by the Department. We have also included several other useful Google Earth layers developed by MDIFW, other State agencies, and private entities. We plan to periodically add additional layers as they become available or based upon requests from our angling community. We think you will enjoy this user friendly resource guide and hope that it helps with your next fishing trip to or within the State of Maine.
Please Note: Users should periodically delete the old version from their 'Places>My Places' menu on Google earth and upload again from our website to obtain current updates. It is important to delete the old files in the 'Places/My Places' menu and rerun the application. If files are not deleted, the updated files simply show up below the original files under 'temporary places.' Temporary files may not be retained if you simply close out of Google Earth and most users think the application failed to work, because they are still trying to open the older files.
You will need to have Google Earth installed to view this data. Click here for the free Google Earth download. For help using Google Earth goto the Help Center.
Once you have launched the Google Earth application you can choose the various map layer options from the menu at the left and you can obtain additional information by clicking on the icon of interest.
