Clary Lake is a popular destination for boaters and anglers. With funds from the Land for Maine’s Future program and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Sport Fish Restoration Program, the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries & Wildlife (IF&W) secured funds to acquire a site that provides permanent and safe access for motor boats and hand-carry craft, as well as bank fishing and swimming.
Clary Lake is a popular destination for fishing year-round, offering bass and perch as well as occasional brood stocks introduced by IF&W. The State purchased this parcel and built the access site to replace one across the lake that had a dangerous configuration (being located on a curve at the base of a long hill). The access site is owned and managed by IF&W.
