Maine Striper Fishing May, 2015 Kennebec Report
Ocean fresh migratory Striped Bass are trickling into the Kennebec estuary. Yesterday I found some aggressive fish feeding during the mid day outgoing tide.
I began my scouting trip by working the usual spots, throwing soft plastic swim baits, it didn't take long to confirm the presence of stripers!! The Kennebec is chock full of a variety of baits right now and is usually the case river herring is the prime forage. Soft plastics like slug-go, rubber swim shad, Bucktails or any variety of swimming should work well for the light tackle guys. Fly fishermen will do well with by keeping the flies basic...lefty deceiver, clouser minnow and other baitfish imitators. Good colors are olive over white, chartreuse, black etc. locations are more important than color right now...areas with shallow mud flats are going to produce better as they are typically warmer than the surrounding deeper water...add in some good current flow and you should be able to find some stripers...in the next few weeks Maine waters should see a good run of fish show up in the usual spots.
Also please remember to check the 2015 rule books as there are some regulations regarding Striped Bass & Cod
Have a great season everyone and we're looking forward to having many of you back on the water with us
