    There's a few trout ponds right in the park and further 'down east" you'll find trout in the rivers that run between the lakes, but if it were me, I'd take my saltwater gear.
    There's some excellent smallmouth fishing 'down east' as well

    If it were me, and I live here so I know the areas well, I would head to the moosehead region or the east or west branch of the penobscot. And there's also grand lake stream. U don't NEED a guide but it wouldn't hurt. But the locals are pretty friendly so just ask around.

    Totally agree with this ,the locals will tell you everything you need to know. And also agree with the areas he suggested way more places to fly fish. That are is pretty much a fly fishing paradise!!!
