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 2012

Maine Saltwater Fishing Reports, Guided Trips & Charters July 23rd, 2011
The Dog Days Of Summer Have Arrived...below is a photo of a a fish that Paul Lombardo caught today (7/23/11)...a nice 33 incher that clobbered a live mack...fish are in their mid summer feeding patterns and they are well fed...The huge amount of bait that is around is keeping them happy...Most of my fishing is taking place on the Kennebec...the fish are spread thoughout most of that system and it's not unusual for us to be fishing an area during a morning tide and then be on fish 10 miles away during the afternoon evening tide...reports from casco bay have been mixed...decent action on the right tides and during low light conditions...pretty typical of striped bass...As the river warms up I will be shifting some of my focus to areas of cooler water along the ocean front and bays...that said....we will still be working the rips heavily during peak tidal flows...fishing deep current is the backbone of the kennebec fishery...The flats have good numbers of striped bass pushing up over them on certain tides and if the conditions are right you can clearly see them sucking crabs off the bottom...if you want to try to catch one of those shallow water stripers on the fly or with light tackle...bring your "A" game and a bottle of aspirin for the headaches that those fish can dish out...feeding them tasty natural morsels makes the game alot easier...but often patience is still required to chum them into range...
