What better vacation activity is there on a hot summer day in Maine than to leave the confines of your camp or cabin, stop by your local ice cream stand, buy your favorite flavor, then take a stroll, cone in hand, along side one of our great area lakes or ponds?

When it comes to fishing in the Sebago Lake Region, the landlocked salmon has to be the #1 cold water gamefish in the area. I say cold water, because there's a pretty strident group out there that would stick up for small and largemouth bass and they're a warm water fish. If you've ever sat in a ...

Last week I provided a link to information that explained the rules and regulations regarding removal of vegetation on shorefront property.
