(Sebago is HUGE!) It's also cool because there are a few stores w/ docks that you can pull up to gor gas/food/beer/ice and whatnot.

I have heard they are trying to close the locks between the 2 tho, because of milfoil. I really hope they don't, its a lot of fun to go across the river/locks going from one to the other.
My family comes from Vermont and we traveled a lot up there when I was a kid in the 60's and 70's.

Where did the Milfoil come from, do they know?

I have no idea where it originated from, but it IS nasty stuff. (And I am NOT any sort of eco nut, far from one!) Problem is, one little piece (on a boat/trailer/paddle) can spread across an entire watershed, killing the natural plants and changing the entire (local) ecosystem. It's like the asian carp down south, they are making their way north to the great lakes, we have slowed them down, but we can't stop them. Once an invasive species (specifically a hardy one) take over, thats it, game over.

There is this river system up northern Maine that I LOVED to fly fish as a kid, always had loads of trout and salmon. Good luck now. Its all crappies and Pike. (Or half breeds, "Chubs" - Half salmon, half bass.) Some jackhole decided "I like to fish for pike more" so he transported some in, and they are wiping out the naturally occouring fish. It stinks. I caught a pike in one of the river outlets 10 miles from the lake the pike were released in. It was as long as my arm from pit to finger tips, I could fit my entire fist in it's mouth.
