Maine Striper Fishing Report June 12th, 2013 Kennebec River

(Another Super Fly Slay Session For The Record Books)

Whoever said that fishing in the rain is over rated has never had a day of fishing like we had today...The lower Kennebec is absolutely on fire...Birds dive bombing sustained surface feeds and bent rods are what we had to deal with this morning...did I mention that it was also raining?? Today I had Jeremiah Jewell aboard for some light tackle fishing...we hopped aboard the boat at the Kennebec tavern around 5:00am this morning and headed down toward the mouth...At the first stop we were greeted instantly by dozens of stripers cartwheeling through balled up schools of river herring...we had these fish all to ourselves for about 20 minutes until, incredibly, a guy in a flats skiff drove straight through the school of blitzing stripers and immediately the fish went down faster than the Titanic on it's maiden voyage(so much for having a stealthy flats boat gotta love it)Didn't really effect us too badly but I decided to go off and find another spot that we wouldnt have to contend with another boat repeatedly driving circles through the fish. Ran about a 1/2 mile into the fog to another location...this spot was completely covered in blitzing Striped Bass that were smashing river herring on the surface and we went to work on them until we were bored...each spot we visited was the same story, loads of striped bass crashing bait on the surface. This continued until low tide slack. When the tide started to flood we decided to head back to the dock...we didn't make it far before running into several huge flocks of terns dive bombing a shallow flat and underneath them was the motherload of blitzes...this one continued for more than an hour as we boated fish after fish after fish before finally calling it a day with the fish still biting. I can honestly say that I've never been much of a bird chaser because I don't really like fishing in a crowd but on a day like today, when we had the water mostly to ourselves, it was a whole lot of fun.
