Guided Maine Striper fishing trips, herring runs + big flies = BIG FISH!!!

Posted: 5/1/08

Alewive & Blueback Herring coutesy Maine Dept. of Marine resources

With the start of the Maine Striper Fishing season almost upon us it's time to start thinking about targeting the huge herring runs that occur along the entire coast of Maine. Some of the largest Striped Bass of the year are caught during June as Alewive & Blueback Herring migrate back to their natal rivers and upsteam lakes to spawn.
We concentrate on the prolific herring runs of Muscongus Bay & the St. George, Medomak and Damariscotta rivers as these offer some of the largest alewive runs in state waters. Large 8-12 inch herring flies fished with 9-10 wt rods & 300-450 grain sinking head lines. A Short 4-6 foot flouro leader is all you need...keep it simple!!! I highly reccomend using a loop knot such as the "Duncan Loop" to attach your fly, this will give your fly much more movement allowing you to present your offering with appeal of fluttering injured baitfish.
for the light tackle anglers target the same Herring runs using large soft plastics such as slug-go and fin-s fish, either fished weightless or with varying sized jig heads. Live lining herring will produce when all else fails!!!
Call now to set up a time before prime dates fill.

Reservations continue to come in for the 2008 Maine Striper fishing season & Interest remains high for our nearshore fly & light tackle "football" Bluefin Tuna trips!!!
