I want to apologize for the lack of stories and reports , I have been on a 7 day a week guiding run for 7 weeks straight.
I want to a quick report. The state is on fire, with all this water fishing is good. Lets start down south. My buddy James who guides has been putting people on stripers consistently. Even right here in the Penobscot river people are catching stripers. If you have never tried it, now is the time!
If you ever wanted to catch monster brook trout on a dry this is the time. Hexagnia( green Drakes) are starting to hatch in full force and will go until the end of the month depending on the pond, look for ponds with muddy silt bottoms.
If you love dry fly fishing the caddis are coming off all over the state, so pick your favorite pattern and get a good drift or they won’t eat your fly!
Smallmouth bass fishing is incredible right now. Jax and I went out for four hours yesterday and caught 60, most in the 15-16″ range with two over 17″. They are looking up , so throw your favorite top water fly!
If you are looking to get out, give me a call, 207.944.1691
