Fishing our beautiful lakes is fun and exciting but my main priority is your comfort and safety. Our first chat will discuss safety concerns, the gear you will need to bring to enjoy the trip and what I will provide.
If booking a full-day trip, we will talk about what you'd like to enjoy for lunch. And remember, if nature calls we are just a short ride back to the camp!
Feel free to email or call to talk about setting up a fishing trip or lake orientation excursion.
Extreme weather will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis and you will always be offered a make-up date should it be too rough on the water.

Registered Guide Tom Roth is a 30-year law enforcement veteran who spends all of his free time in the woods and on the waters of this beautiful state. Tom has fished and hunted all across Maine and New England, Canada, the Great Lakes, Florida and the Caribbean. He was fortunate to be mentored by knowledgeable outdoorsmen from a young age and he looks forward to sharing his passion for angling with his clients. Tom writes outdoors columns in a variety of periodicals and has been a regional columnist with "The Maine Sportsman" covering the Sebago Lake Region since 1995. His first book, "A Sporting Year in Maine, " is being published in 2020. Filled with when-to, how-to and where-to, he also chronicles the humorous events that took place on his many forays in the out-of-doors.
Sebago Lake is home to an abundant lake trout (or togue) population. These bottom-dwellers are taken by trolling lures or bait close to the bottom year-round. Tom is set up for just this type of fishing. At ice-out, salmon angling takes center-stage (typically April to May).
Tom fishes out of a 16-foot Polar Kraft powered by a Mercury 30 HP outboard. A Minn Kota Ulterra with iPilot talks to the Humminbird fishfinder and puts the
Cannon downriggers over the fish. Old-school know-how meets modern technology. This is intimate angling on a boat that was made for catching fish, close to the water with rods that let you feel the fish.

Here is what some of our clients have said:
"I had the pleasure of joining Tom, of Sebago Lake Guide Services, for a guided fishing trip on Sebago Lake. What a great experience! Tom knew exactly where to go, had all the gear necessary and demonstrated complete mastery of the sport. The result, we caught 3 good-sized fish within a couple of hours. I would highly recommend Tom's guide services to anyone looking for an outstanding experience, fishing and enjoying the great outdoors!" Craig B., Maine
"Tom, thank you very much again for this morning on the lake. we loved it!!! We love Maine, too, so we will be back one day. The boys were very happy!" Arnaud B., France
"What a great time! I've been fishing my entire life but had yet to experience fishing deep water for togue on Sebago. Tom provided my wife and I with a great experience and some great fish for the cooler. He's extremely knowledgeable and willingly passed on answers to all of my questions. I am happy to recommend Tom and Sebago Lake Guide Services to anyone." Kevin F., Maine.
