Concierge.com's insider take:

Anchored by 12-mile-wide Sebago Lake—notable for its rare population of landlocked salmon—this collection of lakes and river tributaries is the heart of southern Maine's angling culture. Pick up your bait and tackle at Jordan's Store in Sebago (owner Carroll Cutting will give you a few tips on where to cast your line), and rent a motorboat at Long Beach Marina ($225 for a half-day). For a grander tour, the Songo River Queen, a replica Mississippi riverboat, paddles on neighboring Long Lake and through the locks that connect it to Sebago. Naples Seaplane Service flies Cessnas high over the lakes and surrounding evergreen woods, but less-adventure-minded families gravitate to the Naples boardwalk (on Long Lake), which is lined with the inevitable seafood restaurants, minigolf, ice cream shops, and T-shirt boutiques. At nightfall, locals and tourists down a few cocktails on the terrace of Casablanca-inspired Rick's Café—yes, it's cheesy, but worthwhile for its perch overlooking Long Lake.

The Sebago Lake region is a 30-minute drive from Portland, making it an easy day trip. If you're planning an overnight stay, there are dozens of rustic camps, country inns, and cottage rentals surrounding the lakes. For maid service and a private porch right on the water, check into Migis Lodge in South Casco. In the off-season (November to May), the region resembles a collection of ghost towns, except during the annual Sebago Lake Ice Fishing Derby, when festival tents and hundreds of fishing shacks take over the ice-covered lake. The derby is held in February, as long as the lake is frozen (www.icefishingderby.com).
