This gentleman sits and listens green with envy as his “friend” stretches out a story direct from a lake in Maine. It’s not just the size of the fish (he knows he’s a liar)7 it’s the peace and quiet of a relaxing fishing trip away from the hurried world that upsets the man behind the desk. But there’s a cure — fishing in Maine is about to begin.

Maine Fishing Facts: Reports indicate that the ice will be out of southern lakes about April 1 st and northern lakes about May 15th. Join the happy anglers at lakeside camps where friendship, good food, and relaxing out­door sport combine to make a fishing trip in Maine the finest investment in carefree vacation fun. Don’t be one of those who “didn’t get away to Maine.” Mail the coupon for the information that every fisherman needs to know — where to fish, the best lures, accommoda­tions and all the particulars on Maine fishing.

trout — salmon — togue — perch: Ice out to September 30th

Black Bass: June 1st to June 20th (Fly fishing only) June 21st to September 30th (any lure or bait)
