Highly valued by seasonal and year-round lakefront residents for family time and fishing is Little Sebago Lake in Windham and Gray. The lake's clear waters and sense of wilderness plus close proximity to Portland make it the perfect relaxing get-away.
Little Sebago Lake is 2 hours from Boston and about 25 minutes from Portland and Lewiston. It can be accessed by Route 85 in Raymond, Route 115 in Windham and Routes 26 and 202 in Gray.
The 31 miles of shoreline along this lake support a wealth of wildlife including loons, nesting eagles and aquatic life. Coyote, red fox and bobcat tracks have been spotted when the lake is frozen.
The serpentine shoreline is fun to explore via canoe, kayak, paddleboat, or powerboat. Little Sebago, located just east of its much larger brother, Sebago Lake, actually consists of three distinct basins, northern, middle and southern. Numerous tributaries lead into the lake.
There are many coves, islands and peninsulas to boat around. The lake covers 1,898 acres and is about 5 ½ miles in length. Its deepest spot is 52 feet, just southwest of Horse Island. There are two narrows: Upper and Lower Narrows.
Little Sebago Lake is one of the premier bass lakes in southern Maine. Bass fishing tournaments are held throughout the season. Large and small mouth bass, brown trout and chain pickerel are the key fish in this lake. Last fall it was also stocked with rainbow trout. General law fishing regulations are in effect on this lake in both summer and winter. A state-owned boat ramp is located along the western shore in Windham at Mount Hunger Road.
The Little Sebago Lake Association (LSLA) was formed in 1923. For 85 years this group has been overseeing the lake. Their mission is "to improve, protect and preserve our lake's water quality and fragile ecosystem. We will create and nurture a community of lake stewards, always mindful that human needs must be balanced with the needs of the natural environment."
In the recently published newsletter, Pam Wilkenson, President of the LSLA Board of Directors, states, "The efforts for the upcoming year will be focused upon COMMUNITY, COMMUNICATION, FUNDRAISING and ENJOYMENT." Part of the endeavors Pam foresees taking place to these ends include, "The outreach and networking will increase connectivity with our road associations, who hopefully will add another avenue to disseminate lake education and events happening around them. We are embracing telecommunication technologies to encourage another mode of participation for potential board members by allowing lake residents who live outside of the state during the winter to become part of the board of directors' process."
The LSLA has been testing the water in four key locations for years. The water quality of Little Sebago Lake is rated average to above average. Potential for nuisance algal blooms is low. Thanks to a 319 grant, efforts have been made over the last few years to reduce soil erosion and phosphorus run-off into the lake.
During winter months snowmobiling, ice fishing and watching for signs of wildlife are the activities that abound on Little Sebago Lake. But this could be your year-round haven to get away from it all. With nearby activities including golfing, hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, skiing, plus shopping in Windham, Bridgton, Portland, Freeport and North Conway, this is a most desirable location if you are seeking to live on the lake year round.
