Maine Striper Fishing Report June 19th 2015

We have been continuing to find schoolie striped bass blitzing on blueback herring..outgoing tides have been very good in in the Kennebec.. Yesterday I led a group of fly fishermen down the Kennebec for a mid afternoon trip...bright sun, a tide that was just starting to move. Two things that usually don't bode well for fly fisherman..But this is June and the bass are plentiful and hungry. It only took a few casts with my Kennebec schoolie clouser half & half before the lines started to go tight! The rest of the draining tide my anglers were treated to spectacular surface feeding forward 8 hrs and I had longtime fly fishing client Bill Farland aboard for a morning early morning start had the stripers cartwheeling through the thick schools of herring...over and over Bill's 
Gloomis NRX 8 weight was bent to the grip and he soon had double digit fish to the net for a quick the tide slacked we worked our way down the river and picked away at schoolies that we're chasing bait through some of the shoreline eddies!!! 
Schools of mackerel and sandeel have shown up in eastern Casco Bay which means it's time to start searching those south facing beach front surf lines for big stripers. The great fishing will continue as more & more stripers continue to migrate in!!
Please contact us if you'd like more info on fishing the Kennebec river and Casco Bay
