Description:

Alford Lake is a typical coastal Maine

lake with sufficient cold water to

support coldwater sport fish but occasionally

experiences low dissolved oxygen in the deepest

part of the lake. Annual stockings of trout are

necessary to maintain these fisheries because

spawning and nursery habitat is lacking.

Management of coldwater fish has shifted

many times over the years from landlocked salmon to

brown trout. When splake became available

through the Department's hatchery system an

experimental program began. Splake stockings

conntinued for 4 years, but because they did not

perform brown trout the stockings were

disscontinued. Currently, brown trout are stocked

annually along with spring-yearling brook trout.

The brown trout are surviving to older ages to

provide larger fish while brook trout provide

'faster' fishing.

A free public boat launch facility is

located on the west shore of Alford Lake, but a

nominal fee is charged for parking a vehicle at

the local fish and game club.

Cover/Structure:

Brush, ledges, treed shoreline, boulders.
