Kennebec River Striper Fishing Report; Super Fly Charters: July 22nd, 2009
I had another double header today on Maine's Kennebec River...
trip one featured Andy Kessel from Little Rock, Arkansas and my trusty Sage Xi2 8wt
Andy and a "Micro" Striped Bass caught on the fly...The Smallest fish of the year...By far!!! Kinda cool to see the youngsters joining in(sorry for the crappy pic...my Pentax Optio W30 had water on the lens)
Trip One: We left the dock in Bath at the Crack O' Dawn and rocketed downstream on glassy smooth water to an area that has been producing good numbers of fish...I had all that I could do not to stop as we blew past tons of fishy looking water...arriving at our location, the diving gulls are the first sign that something good was going on...the frantic splashes of six inch blueback herring getting smashed was the second sign of good things. It was amazing to watch baitfish flutter along on the surface and then see a striper rise from the depths to blast the helpless bait...Well poor Andy watching all this unfold at the Crack O' Dawn ...couldn't quite make the right cast...and so these feeding Stripers escaped the sting of his fly!!! Not to worry though...Andy would eventually come tight...just not to the gargantuans that were slamming baits at the crack O' dawn.
Trip Two: Featured Scott Macom & Sons from Ocean City, NJ
I'll try to post a report for trip two after dinner!!! Another double header on the Kennebec Tomorrow!!!
