Based on the number of anglers that fished our Cayuga Lake event—which was on Mother’s Day weekend and had less than desirable weather—we had concerns that we would go over our cap for our next event on Messalonskee Lake.
To avoid any potential roadblocks and dumping a very last-minute decision into the anglers’ laps, we reached out to the state and acquired an additional permit for Long Pond, which is connected to Messalonksee Lake via Belgrade Stream (separated by a dam).
Long Pond fishes very similar to Messalonskee and has many of the same characteristics, though its shoreline is much more undeveloped and natural compared to Messalonskee.
Anglers will now be able to fish either lake (or both)! We hope this is enough notice to anyone planning to fish the event.
You can register on Fishing Chaos up until 5 PM on June 4.
