We operate our fishing TRIPS 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 sandy beaches, ocean front ledges, coastal tide marshes or shallow hard bottom flats. 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 2019

Maine Striper Fishing Report: Kennebec River May 31st, 2014
Tips that I'll offer this week are to get out and fish the outgoing tides in the tidal rivers...look for areas of warmer water and work the methodically. herring imitating flies fished off a sinking head line will work well for fly anglers. Jigs, soft plastics and plugs fished on light tackle will bring you success if you work them SLOWLY!! For anglers that fish outside of the Special regs area of the kennebec river, the same techniques will work as will live & chunk baits fished in the surf lines...as we move into June we should expect to see the bulk of the migration arrive. This is one of the funnest times of the year for striper fishermen, it's easy to get caught up in the excitement...please remember to take care when handling these fish..use the proper tackle and release these stripers back into the water gently and rapidly to help insure that we can fish for these great fish for many years to come!!
