Maine Striper Fishing Super Fly Charters; Kennebec River Report: October 4th 2010

Maine Striper Fishing Continues Into October
The Striper fishing here in midcoast Maine remains strong...We've been seeing good numbers of fish on the Kennebec river. Loads of bait is dropping downriver and hungry Striped Bass are lining up on the ledges to gorge. Huge schools of spike mackerel continue to roam just offshore...juvenile herring are dumping out of the Major rivers in huge schools....couple this with very warm water temps and it sets the stage for a couple of more weeks of great fishing...Most of the fish we're seeing are on the plus side of 30 inches, which makes for great sport on fly and like tackle. The morning runs have been chilly...we're no longer in hawaiian shorts and flip flops as we blast down the river in the mornings. The leaves have started to change to brilliant fall colors providing some spectacular scenery and making for some great back drops for big fish photo ops.

We recently participated in the 2010 Kennebec Pro-Am Benefit Fly Fishing Tournament...the tourney fleet faced some tough conditions including a long slack tide period but "Team Super-Fly" captained by myself and anglers Jan Leth & Mark Davis managed to take home top honors...angler Mark Davis caught the winning fish with a mere 15 minutes to go before the tourny ended...a fatty 28 incher caught by dredging a 6 inch black snakefly in about 15 feet of water over rocky bottom structure.

We're dialed in on the fish...give us a call before it's too late. We still have lots of great fishing left between now and the end of October so please contact us to reserve a tide or two..
