We’re Ready to Kick Off Spring in Maine!

Fishing in Maine

If you ask us, the spring months are some of the best months to travel to Maine. As we transition from our snowy ski hills to our warm sandy beaches, the warm weather brings plenty of new opportunities to explore when traveling to Maine.

Let’s take a look at some ways you can enjoy the spring weather in Maine! 

Let’s Start Fishing! 

As the ice begins to melt, there will continue to be more opportunities to fish! The official fishing season in Maine begins April 1st, so it’s safe to say you can start breaking out your fishing gear and making sure it’s ready to go for the start of the season! Maine has thousands of miles of rivers and streams, ad nearly hundreds of freshwater lakes for guests to fish in. When you plan your trip, you can expect to catch unique fish like chase brook trout, rainbow trout, lake trout, landlocked salmon, smallmouth bass, pike, musky, and more! 

Don’t forget that if you want to fish for saltwater creatures, you can also fish off Maine’s rugged coastline! 

Check Out Maine’s Lighthouses

You can visit Maine’s historic lighthouses all year round. However, there is something about visiting them in the spring that makes the experience that more special. The Portland Headlight, Nubble Light, and Rockland Breakwater are some of the most popular lighthouses people visit when they travel to Maine. 

Explore the Different Dining Options in Maine

Maine is known for its delicious seafood, but did you know that we have plenty of other dishes we’re proud of too? When visitors travel to Maine, they often feel pressured to eat as much lobster as they can. Although lobster is available all season long, the best season to get them is between June and December. 

So, during the off-season, don’t be afraid to try some new dishes! Besides our fishing, we are also known for our farm-to-table food experience, and we serve excellent unique comfort food dishes. In the spring, keep your eyes out for fresh fish, new beer, and blueberry-filled desserts! 

Visit the Ocean

The start of spring means that warm beach weather is near! After a cold, snowy winter, you deserve to take a stroll on the beach or plan a sailing trip to explore the waters. 

When you stay at Sands by the Sea, you will have access to the shores of the Atlantic Ocean. Contact us for more information, or reserve your room online today to start planning your spring Maine vacation!
