Maine Striped Bass Fishing Report June 7th, 2014

This morning I had Chris back aboard for a fly & light tackle trip..
We departed the Kennebec Tavern at 5am and cruised down river to a shallow grass flat...the first cast with the jumpin minnow confirmed the presence of stripers...a good sign!! Chris worked this cove for the last part of the incoming tide before we headed down river for a quick breakfast at Popham beach landmark Percy's store...back on the boat we heard back upriver to fish the outgoing tide under a bright blue sky...we found found fish spread out over the flats & on rocky shoreline rips...The shimano waxwing jigs and Al Gag's whip it jigs were just what the Stripers were looking for. Overall the bite today was fairly slow but we were able to pick off fish here & there using smaller lures. The flats are clearing up nicely with some of them being crystal clear...tons of bait is in the kennebec and small crabs have been marching across the on the Kennebec the fishing is starting to get interesting but we're still waiting for that big push of fish to arrive from the south...Stay tuned because it could happen any day now.
