Does finding and fishing remote ponds in hopes of catching wild brook trout interest you? If so, then the Brook Trout Pond Survey Project is for you!
This Project is a collaborative effort by Maine Audubon (MA), Trout Unlimited (TU), and the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife (MDIFW). The goal of the project is to recruit volunteers to identify previously undocumented wild brook trout populations in remote Maine ponds.
Volunteer anglers will be provided maps, photos, data sheets, and instructions for how to survey each pond. Volunteers should be enthusiastic about fishing for brook trout, be comfortable in remote settings, and have a sense of adventure. Surveys can be done any time before September 30, but preferably May through July.
Regulations in red are new this year.
