Maine Saltwater Fishing Report Kennebec a River June 28th 2015

Striper Fishing continues to be strong along Maine's Kennebec river region. We've been on the water daily and have seen a bit of a shift in feeding behavior this past week...We are still seeing some good surface feeds but the bite has been better on rocky structure with good current flow. In many areas we've seen bass stacked up on these ledges to feed on the abundant river herring...some days we've had fast action...other days we've really had to slow down our presentations to get the stripers to eat..,having a wide variety of lead head jig weights has been critical also...sometimes it doesn't matter how many fish are below the boat if you're not getting your offering in front of them. 
Mackerel have been spotty so far but a little bit of chum in the water will bring them to the boat fairly quickly. July 1st end of the special regs season here on the Kennebec which adds a whole new dimension to the we target the bigger stripers in the river...I'd  also like to remind bait anglers to use proper in line circle hooks when fishing with baits...also for 2015 the regs for keeping striped bass have changed from 1 fish @ 20-26 inches to 1 fish @ greater than 28"...please remember take only what you plan to eat and let the rest swim...
