The town of Howland is situated on the west bank of the Penobscot River at the confluence with the Piscataquis River. According to the United States Census Bureau, the town contains 35.62 square miles 0.7 of which are water with the rest being land. The location on the river 2 lends well to the traditions of fishing and hunting in this area of Maine with trout and landlocked salmon as well as bass resident in both rivers. The amount of unposted land available for hunting in the area means you don’t need to give up hunting just because you live in town. If lake fishing is your passion, nearby Lincoln, Lowell and Enfield offer over a dozen lakes and ponds with public landings for easy access.
