One of the nice things about the lakes region of Maine is that it has a history of welcoming guests from away for over 100 years. A local favorite here in the Sebago Lake region is the Tarry-A-While resort located on the shores of Highland Lake, just off the Ridge Road, in Bridgton. Built in the ...

When it comes to fishing in the Sebago Lake Region, the landlocked salmon has to be the #1 cold water gamefish in the area.

Just 96 miles from Boston, straddling the border between Maine and New Hampshire, lie the clean, clear waters of Great East Lake. Tucked away in the southwest corner of Maine in the town of Acton, Great East has been a magnet for vacationers, campers, and fishermen for over 100 years. Great East ...

We speak so much here about the Sebago Lakes Region and the Sebago Lake area, but haven't written too much about Sebago Lake itself. To get started, here are a few facts and figures about the mighty Sebago Lake: Sebago Lake is 12 miles long. The Great Basin width is five miles and the Jordan Bay ...

When I was a boy I had a rowboat on Crystal Lake in Harrison. What a sense of independence it gave me to sit in that boat, out on the water, oars pulled in, fishpole out, watching the traffic go by on Rte. 117 and enjoying a fisheye view of the camps and cottages that dotted the shoreline.
