Messalonskee Lake, ME

A popular warm-water fishery in the south-central part of the state, Messalonskee Lake is a 3,500-acre lake, at Belgrade. It is the second largest lake in the Belgrade Chain of Lakes. Bass, crappie, perch and sunfish thrive here, as do cold-water species including trout, salmon, pike and pickerel. The majority of over 25 miles of shoreline is developed. An undeveloped marsh area on the southern end of the lake creates a nice nursery for many of the warm water species.
