East Grand Lake is one of the (mostly wilderness) Chiputneticook Lakes located in Northeastern Maine, USA and Eastern New Brunswick, Canada. The very expansive lake is at the headwaters of the Saint Croix River watershed which flows into Passamaquoddy Bay. Freshwater fish species include landlocked salmon, lake trout (Togue), and smallmouth bass, as well as others. Waters can be fished most of the year during fishing season from January through September.
The lake is second to none. Areas of the lake are over 100' deep, and the water is pristine crystal clear. When the water is calm one can easily see 25' to the bottom. The water quality is excellent. Great lake and surrounding area for boating, open water fishing, ice fishing, kayaking, camping and tenting, ATV riding, hunting, swimming, snowmobiling, and much more.
Due to the lack of development, and conservation efforts surrounding this lake, this is a very quiet area with minimal boating traffic on the lake.
