Maine Striper Fishing Kennebec River Report June 8th 2015


This week, the Kennebec continued to fill in nicely with big schools of Striped Bass.   The area that I fish from merry meeting bay to the ocean is holding good numbers of fish and reports from upriver are very good as well. The beaches have not lit up but shallow mudflat areas and areas with heavy current and structure have been working very well. Key forage right now is river herring so we've been doing well with a variety of 3-6" baitfish imitators. For light tackle it's tough to beat a sluggo, fin-s fish or soft plastics like the strike king Shadalicious. We use the keep it simple approach and rig these soft plastics with 1/2-2 oz jig heads or we fish them off a Carolina rig to hit the deeper structure...This morning a bone colored jumpin minnow  topwater spook drew attention on almost every cast...but I think we could have caught them on a soda can...they were so lit up by the big tides & stormy weather!!! Metal jigs like crippled herring are deadly...and we always have at least one rod rigged with one AT ALL TIMES!!! by varying the retrieve we can fish water depths from 4' to 40' with ease. If you are a fly fisherman...this is no better time than the month of June to get your fix of slinging bugs to hungry bass. Again my approach is simple fluffy deciever or clouser half & half...white with a little olive topping... An 8,9 or 10wt rod with A 300-400 grain fly line or intermediate sink line ..this time of year, fancy leaders are not necessary as most of the time you are casting to aggressive fish.
Reports from eastern casco bay have been solid with the best action centering around estuaries and shallow mud flats & marshy areas. All in all we've had a pretty good start to June and within 2-3 weeks the exposed oceanfront beaches should start to produce good catches of big stripers. Mackerel reports have been sporadic but they are here and if you get out on their habitat and chum the water a bit you should be able to fill the livewell or  at least get enough for a session of chunk baiting your favorite spots

Our schedule is filling up but we still have some prime tides each month so get in touch ASAP if you would like to lock down the best tide

Stay Salty, Capt George
