"Even though gamefish are plentiful no person shall have in his possession at any time more fish than he may lawfully take in one day.

Through the war years Maine has been preparing for this season. Our lakes and streams, many of which have not been fished for several seasons, have been regularly stocked with millions of legal size trout, bass, pickerel, togue, perch, and that great gamester, the landlocked salmon. Don’t risk disappointment on this your first outdoor vacation in years by picking the wrong spot. Maine will give you the welcome you so richly deserve, good fishing, good eating, and good living.
