A Land for Maine’s Future program grant helped the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries & Wildlife acquire land alongside the Town of Princeton’s boat launch on Pocomoonshine Lake. The increased lake frontage will allow for parking and a turnaround at this popular sport fishing site, and will create safer opportunities for swimming (situated farther from the boat ramp).
Pocomoonshine Lake is considered one of Maine’s finest fisheries for both smallmouth and large bass, as well as white perch.
