China Lake near Fairfield, Maine
This is a very popular spot for shore anglers who take the short drive form Augusta in the spring to fish for white perch. The shoreline can get very crowded. The boat traffic is not bad at all though. Both species of bass and pickerel are caught here as are the occasional trout or lake trout. Use live worms or meal worms for white perch and you may pick up a brown trout. Little white twister tails work well also.
