People came and people left no one stayed for to long by me 3 hours and I was done the smaller ones were hooked deep and that's why I kept them. Very goofy, some would slam it and take slip bobber straight down some would just start swimming away with the bobber others would pick the crawler up bobber would lat on its side biggest was 9 1/2 and the average was 8" or so

Have the Lakers been doing much lately? Will be up Sunday for a week and I'm considering bringing the down riggers if they are biting. Thank you!

I think that one reason that salmon will not do well in this lake is that they will be eaten by the pike and muskies. The Belgrade lakes in central Maine were a hotspot for salmon with specimens reaching 9#, but when Pike were illegally introduced the salmon fishing went away. Brown trout fare better, but if they can't get them due to disease spreading then that's a moot point. I say keep Big Green as a premier destination for Lake Trout!

Keep in mind, the lake trout is not native to GL either. They scarcely reproduce and need to be stocked from the hatchery. Their fighting ability is about average. So the Atl Salmon could be a sporting improvement over the trout due to its agressive and fighting nature.

^^^^But there are some monster Lakers in Big Green^^^^^^^^^ Atlantics won't reach 40+ pounds

Thanx Pete. My concern is the Cisco population dropping or even being decimated. The other concern is the viruses attributed to Atlantic Salmon being transferred to other native fish. The pacific Northwest folks were told that no diseases could or would be passed on to the native fish, yet they have been and it shows in the drastic reduction in the native salmon population with a few river strains actually disappearing. There are no smelt in Big Green that I aware of. There is a very good population of native fish and very large native fish.

Not a report, but I grew up in Maine and have a degree in fisheries management. In most Maine lakes Landlocked Salmon and Lake Trout live in harmony as they typically forage in different areas with lakers hugging the bottom and salmon typically preferring open water. They can and do frequent the same water at certain times of the year and will eat the same forage fish. The primary forage for salmon in maine is typically rainbow smelt. Are those present in Big Green? If not, they will key on other mid-lake forage that is of a size that they can eat. They typically grow quickly if the forage base is strong and can reach 3-4 lbs in just a few years. They can reach weights of 8-10 lbs if given enough time, but they are aggressive fish that readily take lures and since they taste great they get kept before they achieve these sizes. Salmon spawn in the fall in flowing water. They are a great fighting fish and very acrobatic. However, in my opinion, Maine spends a great deal of time/money managing lakes for salmon and very little time on lake trout. The freshwater versions of these fish don't typically have too many problems relating to fish-borne diseases in Maine. The picture is a 23" salmon that I caught on Schoodic Lake, ME in the summer of 2012.

6/19/14 Went out with my daughter/fishing buddy and we had some great night fishing trolling bomber crank baits in 14-20 ft. Started with 2 nice 13-14 inch white bass, our personal best 21 1/2 inch large mouth that was just a fat pig and a nice 19 inch walleye that we kept along with the white bass for a fish fry.

I just read the entire report from the DNR's website. I was very impressed with it. I think the proposal is well researched and seems very promising to me. They have been stocking brown trout for years, with little to show for it. I'm in favor of it.
