Alford Lake is a typical coastal Maine oligotrophic lake with sufficient cold water to support cold-water sport fish but occasionally experiences low dissolved oxygen in the deepest part of the lake. Annual stockings of trout are necessary to maintain these fisheries because spawning and nursery habitat is lacking.

Management of cold-water fish has shifted any time over the years from landlocked salmon to brown trout. When splake became available through the Department's hatchery system an experimental program began. Splake stockings continued for 4 years, but because they did not perform brown trout the stockings were discontinued. Currently, brown trout are stocked annually along with spring-yearling brook trout. The brown trout are surviving to older ages to provide larger fish while brook trout provide 'faster' fishing.

A free public boat launch facility is located on the west shore of Alford Lake, but a nominal fee is charged for parking a vehicle at the local fish and game club.

Principal fisheries: Brown trout; Brook trout; Rainbow smelt; Smallmouth bass; White perch.
