Spednic Lake is one of the largest lakes in Maine and one of only four lakes over 15,000 acres in the state that remain largely undeveloped. The absence of development to date has supported one of Maine’s last remaining native landlocked salmon fisheries and some of the best smallmouth bass habitat in the United States. Its many islands, fjord-like coves and rising, forested shores offer a stunning setting for fishermen, canoeists, and naturalists. Native landlocked salmon, smallmouth bass, and other prized fish draw many repeat visitors to local sporting camps that take pride in their outdoor heritage, including the guides’ continued use of traditional, handcrafted Grand Lake canoes.
