    Allen Afield: Jury’s out on fishing year-round in Maine

    When I was in grammar school, Maine’s statewide open-water fishing season opened on April 15, except in Aroostook County where it started even later. In fact, prior to the last half of the 20th century, state officials across most of the Northeast had chosen April 15 as the fishing opener, in part because of the […]

    Skiing: Season heads for another raucuous end

    There are those in Maine who complain about our long winters. I have little sympathy for them. This is the northeasternmost state, after all. You should expect snow, cold weather, and, frankly, you should ski. I have even less understanding of those Maine skiers who hang up their boards as soon as the calendar turns […]
