Portland Maine

Casco Bay

With the lively city of Portland flanking its southern edge, Casco Bay’s numerous islands and tidal coves preserve the secluded feel and undisturbed beauty of Maine. Casco Bay intersects the sandy beaches of southern Maine and the characteristic rocky coast of the downeast region, providing a wide variety of fishing opportunities.

Striped bass arrive along the Maine coast in May looking to replenish calories lost during the spring migration. The bay contains a diversity of habitats providing the finfish, crabs and shrimp these fish are looking for. Thousands of acres of productive tidal flats stretch across Casco Bay creating many opportunities for sight fishing.

Large tides help to keep the bay nutrient rich and provide optimal water temperatures, which keeps Maine saltwater fishing going strong in July and August. During September and into October, we get a final peak when the herring drop out of the rivers. This really turns on the feeding for large stripers and bluefin tuna.
