Super Fly Charters provides friendly, professional guided fly & light tackle fishing trips.
We operate our fishing charters in the Mid-Coast region of Maine, from Casco Bay to Penobscot Bay. This area features an astonishing 1000 miles of jagged, pristine coastline. We focus our efforts on the broad reach of the lower Kennebec river estuary & the outer boundaries of Casco Bay...with its countless thousands of acres of untouched saltwater flats, gnarly tides that rip over rocky structure and an intricate maze of backcountry channels, It's a fly & light tackle fishermans nirvana. On any given day we can be found fishing coastal tide marshes, shallow flats, sandy beaches and islands or ledges located offshore. Wherever the fish are!!! Whether it's on the fly...pitching plugs or live lining frisky live baits we've got you covered check out our website for all of our trip offerings...and stay tuned for some new trips options for 2014

Maine Saltwater Fishing Report
Sure...The weather up here in Maine has turned chilly as we are in the transition period between the Fall & Winter seasons, Yeah...snow will surely be flying soon...in fact i've already seen my first snow flurries of the fall season...many NE sportsman have shifted their focus from fishing to hunting...Do yourself a favor...Don't put away all your rods just yet. Pick a good day, grab your 5wt and head on down to one of the many bodies of water that allow year round open water fishing. The St.George river is a great example, yeah the Striped Bass & Bluefish have departed but the upper stretches offer some of the best fall/winter trout fishing in the state. The upper St. George is managed primarily as a Brown Trout fishery, but you'll likely encounter Brookies too. Stone fly nymphs, midge larva, Gold Ribbed Hares Ear nymph, caddis larva, Adams Regular and parachute, wooly buggers and muddler minnows, black nosed dace and grey ghost streamers will generally work all year.
Ask us about the "Sea Run" Brown Trout we have on the St. George tidewater...if you think stalking Striped Bass on the flats can be challenging...come try your hand at the "Sea Run" game...just bring plenty of patience...and warm clothes!!!
* Remember to be safe, the water is very cold this time of year...fish with a buddy!!!
