Go Ice Fishing, Maine StyleIce drill at sunrise, ice fishing Maine

What do you think of when you hear the word fishing? Most of us picture boats, sunscreen, and open water. But the best fishing in Maine also involves ice, hot chocolate, and warming huts. Ice fishing is a big part of Maine culture, and the cottages at Wilsons on Moosehead Lake offer some of the most fruitful ice fishing Maine has to offer. From your gorgeous, lakefront cabin to your cozy ice fishing house, your trip to Moosehead Lake, Maine, will be full of winter fun.

Ice Fishing Maine Lakes

All of Maine’s lakes are great, but Moosehead Lake is truly magnificent. Its rural location in central Maine means it offers plenty of wilderness and scenic views. Wilsons on Moosehead Lake is right in the center of the western lakeshore, so when you stay with us, you have easy access to the lake’s many incredible coves. Enjoy ice fishing, Maine scenery, and the local obsession Allen’s Coffee Flavored Brandy for the most relaxing trip ever.

Wilsons on Moosehead Lake is the perfect place for anglers of all experience levels. If you want to bring all your own equipment, go for it! If you want to rent an ice fishing house, we can recommend a rental shop for you. And if you want an expert Maine fishing guide, we have you covered. For a small fee, we will drill five holes in the ice for you, so you can follow where the fish are biting throughout the day. Our full-day trip with a Maine fishing guide is priced for two people and includes lunch and equipment, so all you need to bring is warm clothing and snacks. Reeling in a fish from beneath the ice poses new challenges and excitement, which makes the winter season some of the best fishing in Maine.

Each of our Moosehead Lake cottages has a fully equipped kitchen, with a refrigerator, dishes, utensils, pots, and pans for you to use during your stay. After all, there’s nothing better than fresh-caught fish on a chilly winter evening. Call 207-695-2549 to make your reservation today!
