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 saltwater fishing reports. & charters)
Anglers who have fished with us this past week have enjoyed some great Striper fishing here on Maine's mighty Kennebec river. Schools of Striped Bass have been feeding heavily during both incoming and outgoing tides. Huge patches of both juvie herring & adult river herring have given our stripers plenty to get excited about..flies, bucktail jigs, top water plugs and soft plastic baits like fin-s fish, ronz or sluggo have been great producers as usual. Paddle tail swim baits have been dinomite!!. Our favorite color has been white but we've had success with a variety of colors including black, chartreuse and bubblegum pink...In darker water Rattle trap type lures have worked very well....On the Kennebec... We have special regs in place to help protect our native fish during the spawn. Remember that it's Catch. & Release only, fly or artificial lures only and any lures must only have one hook...Crushing the barbs down on your hooks is not a bad way to go when fishing over these big schools of stripers...Also remember that the use of bait is prohibited on the Kennebec until July 1st
Our go to fly for the last two weeks has been an olive over white or all olive clouser...NO FLASH !! This fly has worked time after time... The retrieve speed has been SLOW...
HAVE A GREAT WEEK~CAPT GEORGE

Yesterday morning I had John & Ashley aboard for a half day trip. We departed the Kennebec tavern around 830am to catch the last of the outgoing & the first of the incoming tide. We covered a lot of water to start the trip with little to show but as the tide started to swing we found what were were looking for. Schoolie Stripers smashing bait on top. Nearly every cast got blasted...Bone colored jumpin minnows walked across the surface were hammered repeatedly and 4" black sluggo on my own hand poured lead head jigs were money!! Areas south of the Kennebec are producing good action too. Casco Bay has produced some quality fish to go along with the school sized fish. There are some huge schools of Striped Bass working there way up the coast right now and it won't be long before they reach coastal Maine in huge numbers. The tidal rivers are plugged with herring and Reports of mackerel are starting to trickle in...when the bulk of the stripers arrive they will have plenty to eat!! In the meantime get out there and fish...The stripers are here!!!
If you'd like to book a trip please get in touch ASAP...we have two boats and can accommodate larger parties with additional boats..we have lots of tides still available but they'll disappear fast!!
