Maine is an angler’s paradise. The state’s lakes, ponds, rivers, and streams are full of small and largemouth bass, salmon, and brook and lake trout. And while there may be plenty of amazing fishing spots in Maine, three bodies of water stand above the rest. China Lake, Webber Pond, and Great Pond are all in Kennebec County and all have been recognized in the 2017 Bassmaster’s “100 Best Bass Lakes” list for the northeastern division. With literally thousands of lakes and ponds in the northeastern United States, for three bodies of water in Kennebec County to make the top 25 on this list means you don’t want to leave home without your fishing gear, because there are plenty of energetic fish just waiting to put up a historic fight.
