Suggested Management

Kennebago Lake is located east of West Kennebago Mountain. Many small inlets enter all sides of the pond. Its short outlet flows west into the Logans, a flowed section of the Kennebago River. The pond's shoreline is lightly developed.

Water quality in Kennebago Lake is excellent for Coldwater gamefish. Spawning and nursery habitat is present and used by salmon and brook trout to maintain a fishery. Brook trout growth is good with light competition from other fish species. Salmon are slow growing, partly due to the lake's population of unusually large-size smelt, which the salmon utilize as forage. The lake is not stocked.

Kennebago Lake is accessible via gated gravel roads north of Route 16. The lake is open to fly fishing only in the summer and closed to fishing in the winter. See the lawbook for additional regulations.

Surveyed - August, 1939 Resurveyed - 1983 (Revised - 1953, 1985, 1998) Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife Funded in part by the Federal Aid in Restoration Act under Federal Project F-28-P L2374D
