China Lake, ME

Two pools comprise China Lake, a 3,900-acre lake in the south-central part of the state. These two large basins are connected by a narrow waterway, and together encompass nearly 30 miles of shoreline. The east basin is a long finger shape and runs north and south along highway 202. The west basin is more circular and is a broader expanse of water, and the deeper of the two. The China Lake West Basin boat ramp is located on the northeast corner of the west basin. There is another boat ramp at the northern tip of the east basin. The lake is considered by many to be the best bass fishing lake in the state, and is home to many bass fishing tournaments. In winter, once the ice is safe, China lake is a favorite ice fishing destination.
